  • You retain a student‘s status at your home university.
  • A free mover (visiting student) is not eligible for a degree from MRU.
  • After completion of your mobility studies, you will receive a transcript of records and you will be able to ask for the recognition of the credits obtained at MRU at your home university.

  • If a student is confirmed for a short-term state scholarship of 420 EUR, another financial support is not considered.
  • If a student is not confirmed for a short-term state scholarship, MRU grants a tuition waiver.
  • MRU has established a special fund to support MRU Ukrainian degree-seeking students.
