Funding your work or study placement
If you wish to apply for an Erasmus+ Grant you must discuss this with your Departmental Study Abroad+ Advisor. 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.
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.
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.
Please see the University’s FAQs relating to the future of the Erasmus+ programme in the light of the current Brexit situation. If you have any further questions please refer to the Erasmus+ official website or contact the Erasmus+ Team.
