Erasmus+ Study Mobility

Erasmus+ supports student and doctoral candidate exchanges within Erasmus+ Programme countries and to and from Partner countries.
Opportunities to study abroad are available to students at Bachelor and Master levels and Doctoral candidates.

Students with physical, mental or health-related conditions may apply for additional funding after they have been selected to study abroad.

Duration

The study period abroad can last from a minimum of 3 months (or 1 academic term or trimester) to a maximum of 12 months.
The participants can benefit of 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.
Cycle” refers to the level of study as defined by the European Qualifications Framework (EQF):

  • First cycle (Bachelor or equivalent) EQF – 5/6
  • Second cycle (Master or equivalent) EQF 7
  • Third cycle (Doctoral or equivalent) EQF 8

Conditions

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.

Academic recognition

The Learning Agreement and Compatibility Form will be signed by all involved parties before the start of the mobility. The academic recognition will be done accordingly and given that the courses and ECTS initially agreed were successfully gained.

Financial support

Participants are eligible for an Erasmus+ grant as a contribution to your travel and subsistence costs. It may vary according to 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 availability of other grants.

Irrespective whether the participant receives an Erasmus+ grant or is an Erasmus+-zero-grant student, he/she will 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 exempted 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.
