Student exchanges

Erasmus+ grant

An Erasmus+ grant is available to participating students to assist with the extra costs of studying and working abroad.

Erasmus+ Logo

The Erasmus+ programme is financed by the European Commission and provides funding for students to study and work abroad in Europe.  

To be eligible for funding, an exchange must last for a minimum of 3 months.  A traineeship or work placement must be a minimum of 2 months. 

Students undertaking an exchange in their home country are not eligible for an Erasmus+ grant. 

The Erasmus+ grant is intended as a contribution towards your living expenses and will not cover all the costs of your time abroad.

We strongly advise students not to rely solely on the Erasmus+ grant for core living expenses.
