Study

Within the Freemover scheme, TBU students can participate in a study period at any institution worldwide. Students can either take advantage of an existing TBU cooperation with a particular partner institution abroad (see Partner institutions) or choose a different foreign institution according to their preference.

This programme is funded by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic (MEYS) within the TBU Institutional Plan.
