Are you going to study abroad? Apply for the Erasmus+ scholarship

If you are studying abroad with Erasmus+, you can apply for the Erasmus+ scholarship. The scholarship is based on what country you are conducting your exchange studies in, and the number of days you will be there.

Erasmus+ student mobility

The scholarship is based on what country you are conducting your exchange studies in, and the number of days that you will be away. Students who have been selected for an exchange within the Erasmus + programme will receive information on the application process for the scholarship.

In what countries is the scholarship available?

All EU countries are part of the Erasmus+ programme, as well as Iceland, Turkey, North Macedonia, Liechtenstein, Serbia and Norway. 

Who can apply?

Only students who have been nominated for an exchange within the Erasmus+-programme are able to apply for the scholarship. You must, therefore, apply for exchange studies first. All available positions within the Erasmus+ programme are announced at the faculties twice per year, so be sure to keep yourself posted about open positions related to your field of study to get more information about what partner universities you can apply to. Deadline for application for exchange studies during the autumn semester is March 15, and October 15 for exchange studies during the spring semester.

You can be awarded an Erasmus + scholarship for studies and/or internship for a limit of 12 months per study level. So you can go as many times as you like throughout your education, as long as you do not exceed 12 months in total per level; 12 months for bachelor's level, 12 months for master's level, 12 months for PhD level.

Amount of scholarship

The scholarships vary from €360-420/month (academic year 2018/19). 

Students with a disability may apply for extra funds in the case of a permanent disability that would incur additional costs for the exchange. Students who go on exchange studies with accompanying children have the opportunity to apply for a special supplement.
