MOSTECH: a mobility programme for students of Polish technical universities is addressed to students of the 5th and 6th semester of first-cycle studies and students of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd semester of second-cycle studies unless it is the last semester of studies. The idea behind the agreement concluded by Polish technical universities is to provide mechanisms to implement the assumptions of the Bologna Process, improving the quality of education and facilitating national student exchange.
The unit coordinating the programme’s functioning is the Accreditation Committee of Technical Universities office at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow.

The essence of educating students within the MostAR programme:
The MostAR programme is an educational offer for students who want to pursue part of their studies outside their home university.
Under this programme, the student can complete one-year or semester studies and study selected subjects based on existing study programmes at the university of his choice.
Information about completed studies outside the home university is reflected in the diploma supplement.
In its general assumptions, the MostAR programme refers to the European education system under the ERASMUS LLP programme.
Assumptions and organization of education within the programme
The MostAR programme covers all fields of study at universities participating in the programme.
The home university handles office and organizational matters of students participating in the programme.
The MostAR Office, based at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences, coordinates student trips between universities and arranges programmes.
Students are registered with the MostAR Office for studies in a given academic year at least 6 weeks before the start of studies.
In the event of high interest in studies at a given university and a given field of study in a semester exceeding the capacity of a given university, students may be offered another university offering education in the same field of study.
The Office will provide information about students qualified for studies under the MostAR program to the appropriate university immediately after the approval of study programmes between universities and the number of outgoing students is determined.
During studies under the MostAR programme, scholarships from the financial assistance fund (except for accommodation subsidies), scholarships of the Minister responsible for higher education and other scholarships to which the student is entitled are paid by the home university.
Universities that host students provide them with places in a dormitory.
Home universities cover the accommodation cost for their students in dormitories of host universities for one semester.
The student’s home university pays for accommodation in a student dormitory based on the invoice sent by the host university. The payment due date is set at 21 days from the date of its receipt.
Students of the MostAR programme
A prerequisite for admitting a student to another university is that they have completed the year or semester preceding the study period outside the home university.
A student may start studies under the MostAR programme not earlier than:
- after completing the first year of studies, for first-cycle studies;
- after completing the first semester, for second-cycle studies.
Crediting of completed studies
The condition for completing the semester is completing the study programme agreed upon between the universities and approved by the Dean of the home university.
The completion of individual courses is recorded in the Student’s Periodic Achievement Card and the Student Book if the university issues student books.
In the card of the student’s periodic achievements, the Dean of the Faculty where the student has studied confirms the classes completed by the student in selected subjects and the grades obtained.
The Dean of the home university credits the semester.
The mode of crediting the semester is based on the adopted ECTS credit system. In the case of crediting part of the agreed curriculum, the appropriate Dean issues the decision on crediting the missing subjects after the student’s return to the home university.
The results obtained from completing the courses are considered when calculating the average in a given year of study and the average for the entire course of study per the rules in force at the student’s home university.
