Funding and Grants

All students who are accepted for Erasmus+ will be considered for an Erasmus+ grant. The grant is a contribution towards living costs whilst studying or working abroad and is not intended to cover all costs. The grant is based on monthly amounts, which vary from country to country.  Please note that grants are not guaranteed for each student.  

  • Tuition Fees – you will pay your tuition fees to the University of Greenwich as normal - there are no additional tuition fees. However, UK/EU students participating in a full-year exchange will be entitled to a reduced tuition fee for that year - for 2019/20 this is £1385.
  • Student Loans - If you are entitled to receive loans from Student Finance England, you should apply in the usual way. It is important however that you notify Student Finance England that you are planning to study abroad as this will affect the amount of any student loan that you receive. Student Finance England also have travel grants available to help with travelling to your host institution.
  • Erasmus+ Grant – students accepted onto the programme will be considered for an Erasmus+ grant of either €370 or €420 per month, depending on the host country. There is also an additional €120 or €20 grant available for students with a household income of £25000 or less, completing study abroad and work abroad placements respectively.
  • International students are ineligible for a tuition fee reduction 

Assessments

  • Your Faculty Erasmus Coordinator is responsible for approving your choice of courses at the host university in advance of your exchange
  • Most universities in Europe use ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits. Students need 30 ECTS per term, the equivalent to 60 UoG credits.
  • Your marks from your assessments at the host institution will be translated and will count towards your University of Greenwich degree classification. The University's grade translation policy can be found here.
