8. The settlement of the final amount of individual support (funding) shall be based on the actual period of student’s stay abroad in order to carry out studies, confirmed by the receiving University, and the length of the period of such a stay specified in the agreement possibly connected with a short traineeship resulting from the agreed programme of studies. Such period should be confirmed with an appropriate certificate with precise dates of stay issued by receiving university. The length of stay  shall be determined with an accuracy of one day according to the principles binding for the Erasmus+ Programme, where:

  • 1 month = 30 calendar days,
  • 1 day  =  1/30of the monthly rate of the individual support (funding),

Taking into account the principle of 5-day flexibility for stays shorter than originally planned.
The final amount of funding shall be determined with the use of the Mobility Tool for the Erasmus+ Programme.
