Erasmus+ is EU’s biggest exchange program in Higher Education for studies and training in Europe.
As an Erasmus+ student you have the possibility to exchange to another European university as a part of your degree at your home university (for a period of 2-12 months).
As Erasmus+ student you do not pay tuition fee
You can exchange more than once – both on bachelor and master level
You receive an Erasmus Grant
The grant changes from year to year and depends on which country you go on exchange to. For 2022-23 the rates are:
€ 460 per month to Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Rep of Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Sweden.
€ 410 per month to other European countries in the Erasmus+ program.
Students with fewer opportunities:
If you are going on exchange and you have children younger than 18 years old you will receive € 250 extra per month. Please inform us about this on email@example.com. It is your responsibility to check if this is possible and practical.
You will need to sign a Declaration of Honor.
Students with disabilities and chronic diseases can also receive € 250 extra per month. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info
Students with status as refugees can receive the same amount extra per month. You will need to sign a Declaration of Honor. Please contact email@example.com for more info.
If you have expenses on your exchange caused by special needs or disabilities you can apply for extra funding to cover these expenses.
Important to remember when you go on Erasmus+ exchange:
When you receive an offer of an Erasmus+ exchange from us and also are accepted by our partner university you will receive a grant.
The grant is calculated from the day you start your studies at the partner university to the day you finish your studies same place.
The first 70% of your total grant will normally be transferred to your bank account in October/March while the last 30% are transferred after you have finished your exchange.
All students who receives and accepts an offer of Erasmus+ exchange will receive an email with info about what they need to do.
