Erasmus Grant for Studies

Students who are going on an Erasmus exchange will receive an Erasmus grant for studies.

To be eligible to apply for an Erasmus grant, you first need to have been nominated for an Erasmus exchange via the Unit for International Mobility or your department/faculty. After you have been nominated, you will receive information on how to submit your Erasmus grant application.

The grant is intended to cover additional costs related to your Erasmus exchange and will not provide full cost coverage for your stay abroad. An Erasmus grant is based on the length of the exchange and varies depending on the living costs in the host country.
