Erasmus+ Grant

UWE Bristol students undertaking a three to twelve-month study abroad programme with a partner institution in Europe (including some countries outside the EU) will be eligible for an Erasmus+ grant.

Erasmus+ grants are also available to UWE Bristol students (and recent graduates) undertaking work placements or traineeships in Europe for between two and twelve months.

How do I apply for an Erasmus+ Grant?

If you are selected for a study abroad programme which is eligible for an Erasmus+ Grant, the funding will be available to you automatically. There is no separate application for the funding, though you are required to complete and submit all required documentation by the stated deadlines.

Students will be required to complete various items of paperwork to be eligible for the full funding. This will include:

  • a grant agreement, confirming the terms and conditions of the funding
  • a learning agreement, confirming what you will studied (signed by your host and your UWE Bristol department)
  • a certificate of arrival
  • a certificate of departure
  • a report on your experience.

Failure to complete the required documentation accurately and in a timely manner may result in delayed or withheld funding.

Grant rates 2015/16

Grants are calculated based on the type of placement (study/work), the host country, and the duration of the programme. The grant rates for 2015/16 are below. These are likely to change for future years.
