Funding your work or study placement

Erasmus+ Grants

If you wish to apply for an Erasmus+ Grant you must discuss this with your Departmental Erasmus+ Adviser.  They will then inform the Erasmus Team that you will be undertaking an Erasmus+ study or work placement as part of your degree.  You will then be emailed a link to the online forms and information about the grant in the summer term.

You can also attend one of the Erasmus+ grant briefings which are held in the summer term each year.

The Erasmus+ Grant is not intended to fund your placement abroad fully but to contribute to the extra cost involved in studying abroad.

If you are classed as a Widening Participation student, you may be eligible for an additional grant.

Student Loans

Students who spend a period of study overseas as part of their course may be entitled to a higher rate of student loan, provided the period of study undertaken overseas is for a minimum of eight consecutive weeks.  Please see the relevant funding pages for further information.

Tuition fees 2015/16

If you study abroad for the academic year, you pay 15% of your tuition fees to Lancaster and no fees to your host university or organisation.

If you study abroad for one term or semester, you pay 100% of your your tuition fees to Lancaster and no fees to your host university or organisation.
