All study and work abroad placements (i.e. Erasmus+ and non-Erasmus+, EU and non-EU) incur a tuition fee that is 15% of the standard fee. Of course all students have access to a tuition fee loan to cover this cost and students studying abroad will continue to be eligible for a maintenance loan; grants are also available for those from lower income households, to assist with their living costs for the year.
Under the Erasmus+ scheme students who study or work in Europe get extra funding. This means that all students going abroad in Europe receive a small Erasmus+ grant of about €300 a month for their study and work. Students on language assistantships are also paid for their work. This is often the case with work placements.
