Info for incoming ERASMUS students


  Our  faculty  has  been  involved  in
  the   European   students'   mobility
alt  programs since 2001, i.e. only three
  years     after    its   establishment.
  Implementation  of such  a program
  is    necessarily   connected    with
  adaptation of the faculty's curricula
  to   the  latest   development   and
  progress  as  well  as  to the latest
  requirements   on   alternative  and
  innovative       education      which
  corresponds  to  the needs  of civil
  society.  To  support  and  develop
  students'  mobility, the faculty  has
  adopted the ECTS System.     


The faculty has also adapted its educational system in such a way that it corresponds to quality and quantity of knowledge the students are taught at other law faculties across Europe.

The faculty is open to all students coming from other countries, regardless of their national or ethnic origin, race, sex, religion, health handicap, financial status, political preference, age or sexual orientation. The faculty encourages its teachers in their initiative to open new foreign language courses. Within  recent years the faculty has considerably improved its educational activities in foreign languages. However, incoming students are welcome to choose even courses taught in the Slovak language.
