How to apply for a semester at BISLA

If your university is an exchange partner with BISLA, you can apply for a study abroad period at your own school’s international office.

If your school is not among the listed partner institutions, we encourage you to to contact our International Studies Coordinator Lucia Sulíková on the following email address:

Application deadlines:

  •      Fall Semester: April 30
  •      Spring Semester: November 15

Once you have been selected by your home institution, fill out and submit the Exchange Application Form.

Please do not forget to send us the following:

  1. a photo of yourself
  2. a scan or copy of your transcripts
  3. a scan or copy of your advisor’s approval (if applicable)

After receiving your application, BISLA will send you a confirmation email and start the admission procedure by evaluating your educational background and course selection. An interview via Skype will also be scheduled. Applicants are notified of acceptance or rejection usually within a month of the initial application.

Housing: BISLA has no on-campus housing or dorms. However, BISLA staff assist international students in finding accommodation near the school.
