  4. Students organizing their traineeships under Freemover bring/email a completed TA to ISO ( so that it can be signed by the faculty coordinator, Vice-Dean Krivan (LA for Erasmus+ traineeships is signed electronically so this step can be omitted); this should be done at least 3 weeks before the beginning of the practice abroad; please note that parts concerning the programme of the internship and other details about a foreign institution must be completed in advance

  5. After the LA / TA is confirmed, Students are obliged to create a record of the stay abroad to the IS (STUDENT -- DURING STUDIES -- INTERNSHIPS AND STAYS -- Create a new internship or a stay and upload the LA / TA signed by the 3 parties
