General Information

Please note that:

  • Instituto Superior Tecnico in Portugal will not accept Undergraduate mobilities in this call.
  • In accordance with the EACEA guidelines for academic level and nationality distribution, Undergraduate and Group A (here Bangladesh and Afghanistan) nominations must be awarded in order for any other mobility levels to also be awarded. If no suitable Undergraduate or Group A candidates are found, no further nominations can be awarded since this will negatively impact on the scholarship distribution balances which must be at all times respected.
