For stays exceeding 90 days, non-EU citizens must apply for Temporary Residence Permit.

7. RECOMMENDATION FOR NON-EU STUDENTS: In order to avoid lengthy and costly procedures at the foreigners police, we recommend to our NON-EU students who have temporary residence in Ghent or other EU partner countries to reduce their stay to the maximum of 90 days (including arrival and departure), because otherwise it is necessary to ask for temporary residence permit at the foreigners police. If you decide to stay longer, we will of course assist you. However, it is necessary to inform us about this as soon as possible, because some of the required documents might be very complicated to obtain (e.g. document proving a clear criminal record- note that you might and probably will be asked for this document from both your home country and the EU country that you currently reside in). You can find more information here: https://www.mic.iom.sk/en/residence/temporary-residence.html and here https://www.mzv.sk/web/en/consular_info/residence_of_foreigners_in_territory_of_slovakia .


Please download and fill in the Exam Record form- HERE
b) Send the filled in Exam Record to imrd@uniag.sk until the end of FEBRUARY for the Summer Semester and end of OCTOBER for the Winter Semester. Please KEEP the original Exam Record document- you will need it later.


The local Erasmus Student Network (ESN) will be notified about your arrival and they will assign your own „Erasmus buddy“ to you. Erasmus buddy is a local student who can help you with the process of registration, better immersion into student life at SUA. The ESN also organizes trips and fun activities during the semester. The level and frequency of interaction with your Erasmus buddy or the local ESN are entirely up to you.
