NOTES FROM THE STUDENT - please leave comment in this part of AF, saying how much you are actually intersted in the research itself. State it in number from 1 to 10.

(1-no interest in the reseach, 10-research is my main priority on the exchange)

Please, when writing the Motivation Letter try to focus on the research project you're applying for. If possible, don't use only the general motivation letter.


Contact persons help the students, show and give all important information about city, transport etc. prepare welcome party usually National Food and Drinking party, barbecue, some trips ... depends on each LC.
