Erasmus exchange information
Erasmus is a European funded programme that aims to promote and support student and staff mobility.
The Erasmus programme is supported by the European Commission, to encourage co-operation between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in different participant countries. Co-operation activities include staff mobility for both academic and non-academic staff, work or study placements for undergraduate and postgraduate students and various opportunities for joint projects on curriculum development and intensive mobility projects.
Erasmus student exchanges
As an Erasmus student you generally spend between 3-5 months abroad at an Erasmus partner institution and receive a grant, which contributes towards extra costs you may have during your exchange period.
You may also be able to participate in a free Erasmus Intensive Language Course in the country chosen for your exchange period, for which you are eligible to receive an extra grant.
Supplementary funding may also available for students choosing priority countries (currently this includes Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Poland and Turkey).
