LAB uses an online mobility software called Mobility-Online. It was taken in use for all mobilities starting from academic year 2020-2021. When travelling abroad related to LAB studies, each LAB student must fill out an electronic form to the LAB Mobility-Online software. The software has several programmes in use and the electronic form to be used depends on the type of the mobility. A separate application form needs to be done for each mobility period. Also our incoming exchange students apply to LAB via Mobility-Online system.
