Study abroad with Erasmus+

Coronavirus and stays abroad in 2021

The Erasmus+ programme is a great way to gain valuable experience abroad by studying in another European country.

Students can go abroad for 3 months minimum to 12 months maximum (including a complementary traineeship period, if planned). Virtual mobility phases in the home country are not included. The same student may receive grants for studying or being trained abroad totalling up to 12 months maximum per each cycle of study (Bachelor, Master, PhD).

Students may be awarded an Erasmus+ EU grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs incurred in connection with their study period abroad. Erasmus+ students – whether or not they receive an Erasmus+ EU grant – are exempted from paying fees for tuition, registration, examinations and access to laboratory and library facilities at the host institution.

Advantages of going abroad

The programme offers several advantages, including:
