  • What is Erasmus+?
    1. All UvA degree programmes participate in the European Erasmus+ Programme.
    2. This means that the individual degree programmes have concluded student exchange agreements with partner universities in the European member states, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey and North Macedonia.
    3. Check your faculty’s website for an overview of the partner universities and for more information about the registration procedures. You can also take a look at the World Map.
    4. These exchanges are funded by the European Commission. The Erasmus programme, which was set up 25 years ago, aims to stimulate cooperation in higher education.
    5. Students can use the Erasmus+ programme to spend some time abroad at a foreign (partner) university.
    6. More general information about Erasmus+ can be found on www.wilweg.nl (in Dutch).
    7. Are you already nominated to go on exchange? Then you can find all the necessary information on Canvas.
  • What is an Erasmus+ grant?

    Erasmus+ Grant for Studies

    1. As an Erasmus student, you can apply for an Erasmus+ grant which you can use to help cover additional living and travel costs during your stay abroad.
    2. The grant amount is determined annually by Nuffic, the Dutch organisation for internationalisation in education, and is linked to the destination country. 
    3. The available amounts per destination are shown below.
    4. This year, there is no maximum grant period. The maximum mobility period is 12 months.

  • Am I eligible for an Erasmus+ grant?
    1. The general conditions regarding eligibility for an Erasmus+ grant can be found on www.wilweg.nl (in Dutch).
    2. In addition, study programmes can set their own requirements and conditions. Students who are selected for an Erasmus+ grant by their study programmes will be automatically nominated for this by the Central Erasmus Office of the UvA.
    3. You will only be eligible for the grant if you are selected for a place at a partner university by your faculty.
    4. Students who are selected for the Erasmus+ programme, but do not receive a grant, can still be placed abroad by the UvA; you are then a zero-grant Erasmus+ student.
    5. The Erasmus+ programme is also open to academic internships.
  • Erasmus+: extensive opportunities for students staying abroad
    1. You can go abroad for a maximum of 1 year as part of the Erasmus+ programme in each phase of your study. This means that you can go abroad for a study and/or internship for a maximum of 12 months per study phase, both during your Bachelor’s study and Master’s study.
    2. An internship period of 2 to 12 months applies for an internship and a period of 3 to 12 months applies for study mobility.
    3. You may also go abroad numerous times in a row for study or an internship, provided that you do not exceed the 12-month limit per study phase.
    4. The same also applies if studying for a doctorate: in this case also you can go abroad for study and/or an internship for a maximum of 12 months.
    5. Please take into account, however, that you will probably only receive the Erasmus grant one time only. 
  • An internship grant after you graduate
    1. The new Erasmus+ programme also gives you the opportunity to do a study or work-related internship abroad with an Erasmus+ grant up to 1 year after you graduate.
    2. This can be a fantastic springboard for an international job, because this will enable you to gain foreign work experience.
    3. You can also use this to expand your CV.
    4. If your internship starts after your graduation, you are still eligible for an Erasmus+ grant. However, the rule is that you must have completed your application before you graduate.
