Erasmus+ outgoing study options
UON students interested in study in Europe
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How has the scheme been affected by Brexit?
Both UON students who wish to study in Europe, and students at partner universities wishing to study at UON will be able to do so until our current funding expires in May 2022, with a possible extension to May 2023. Details of arrangements for the transition period are available on the Erasmus website.
Where can I go?
We have 4 Erasmus+ partner universities for Education students in the Netherlands; Denmark; Sweden; and Belgium, offering a variety of courses for you to choose from depending on your degree programme at UON.
How do I apply?
The application process for each university is different but we advise and help you with your application once you have made your choice. We have a limited number of place with each partner university, but all the partners are excellent and there is a wide choice of programmes if you are unable to get your first choice.
Applications are subject to an internal selection procedure, as well as availability of places and funding. As part of the application process you will be asked to provide a 400-word statement in support of your application. Academic staff will formally ‘nominate’ those students who have been selected to apply for a place.
Who can apply?
All full time International/EU students are eligible to participate in the Erasmus+ programme subject to UK visa requirements and the visa requirements of the host country.
Are there any restrictions due to COVID-19?
Please note that due to the current COVID-19 situation, partner universities are likely to have increased their online content due to the social distancing requirements. It is students’ responsibility to check, in conjunction with academic staff at UON, that they are happy with the content before making an application.
Please also note that all applications / offers made by partner universities are subject to the current arrangements in place, both in the UK and UON, in terms of international and external travel advice / restrictions.
Will I get an Erasmus+ grant?
If you are offered a place to study at one of our Erasmus+ partners, you are automatically eligible for a grant through the University’s Erasmus+ programme.
The grant ranges from €370 – €420 per month, depending on the cost of living in your host country. An additional €120 per month is available to students who can be identifies as meeting the widening participation category as defined by the Erasmus+ programme regulations.
Full information on studying abroad under the Erasmus+ programme can be found on the Erasmus+ website. Our Erasmus and Mobility Officer (EMO) will provide any further information and assistance you may need and will assist you with the Erasmus+ processes and paperwork.
