Study Mobility | Outgoing Mobility

Erasmus+ Study Mobility

Erasmus+ supports students at all cycles of study (Bachelor, Master and Doctoral level) exchanges within Erasmus+ Programme countries and to and from Partner countries.

By attending the programme, UNIC students can gain a lot of experience and value in education without having to worry so much about the financial aspect, as those who participate in the programme do not pay university fees abroad, only the standard tuition at the University of Nicosia. Also, those who qualify to go on mobility will be awarded with an Erasmus Grant to help them pay for their accommodation and daily expenses. A travel allowance is also provided to the students calculated on the distance between Nicosia and the host institution.

Fewer opportunities participants may apply for additional funding after they have been selected to study abroad. More information can be found here

The participants can benefit from an exchange abroad with Erasmus+ multiple times, either as a student or as a trainee, but the total time abroad (study abroad periods included) may not exceed 12 months within one cycle of study.

UNIC and the receiving institution must have an inter-institutional agreement between them for the applicant to study there with Erasmus+, under the specific study area.

The Online Learning Agreement (OLA) and Compatibility (CF) have to be signed by all involved parties before the start of the mobility in order to ensure academic recognition. The process will be completed accordingly after the end of the mobility provided that the courses an ECTS initially agreed, have been successfully achieved.

Participants are eligible for an Erasmus+ grant as a contribution to their travel and subsistence costs.

The Erasmus+ Grant is calculated on a monthly basis, and it may vary accordingly taking into regards differences in living costs between your country and the destination country, the number of students applying for a grant, the distance between countries and the duration of the mobility.

Τhe Erasmus+ Grant offered for European and International countries can be found here.

(Note that for those interested in applying for a mobility to their country of origin, funding restrictions may exist. Please refer to each call for applications for specific details.)

The funding which corresponds to each mobility is divided into three or four installments depending on the mobility period.

Irrespective of whether the participant receives an Erasmus+ grant or is an Erasmus+ zero-grant participant, they will be required to sign a grant agreement specifying the duration of the mobility, the amount of the grant and other rights and obligations.

As Erasmus+ students, participants will be exempt from fees for tuition, registration, examinations, and charges for access to laboratories or libraries at the receiving institution. Small fees for insurance or student union membership may still apply.

Before the physical mobility starts at the Host Institution, the approved applicants at the time, should settle any outstanding balances they have from previous semesters at UNIC and pay the registration fee of the semester that the mobility will take place.

The participants will only pay the standard tuition fees at the University of Nicosia.

Any mobility is divided into three phases: Before – During – After. The required documents to be submitted are mentioned here, nevertheless, the detailed procedure will be communicated after the official selection by the UNIC Erasmus+ Selection Committee.
