Erasmus+ is a European Union programme which supports students studying or working in the EU/EEA.
Lancaster University has many Erasmus+ partners and sends over 150 students to study or work in the EU each year. Your Departmental Erasmus+ Adviser will be able to advise you on how a placement can form a part of your degree and where you can go.
Erasmus+ placements typically take the form of a year or term abroad in the second or third year of your undergraduate degree although there are also opportunities for postgraduate students in some departments. To qualify for an Erasmus+ grant, you must study abroad for a minimum of three months or work abroad for a minimum of two months. Placements are not available to first year students.
Information about Erasmus+ grants for work or study placements can be found on the Funding your Work or Study Placement page and you will find more detailed information about the Erasmus+ Programme here. If you have other questions, please contact the Erasmus+ Team.
