Extension process at Ambis:

  1. Ask the Erasmus coordinator at Ambis about availability of extension and current deadlines.
  2. Talk to the Erasmus Coordinator at your home university about the possibility of extension (scholarship, limits etc.).
  3. Download the Extension form together with a new Learning agreement for the following semester and fill in all the details.

  6. Provided that your application for extension is successful, you will be issued a new letter of acceptance proving your extension has been confirmed by Ambis.
  7. We remind non-EU citizens to personally and quickly renew/extend their residence permit/visa. It is the student’s responsibility to follow all the visa procedure deadlines.
