Funding and Grants

Erasmus+ Grant

All students who are accepted for Erasmus+ will be considered for an Erasmus+ Grant, which is a contribution towards living costs whilst studying or working abroad. The grant is based on monthly amounts, which vary from country to country.

Please note that grants are not guaranteed for each student and the amount you will receive will be communicated to you a few months before departing for your host institution. For 2018/19 study placement grants vary between €300-350 per month and traineeship grants between €400 - 450 depending on the host country.

This grant is a contribution towards living costs whilst studying or working abroad and is not intended to cover all costs.

If it is not possible for a grant to be allocated to you, you may still be able to take part in Erasmus+ as a "zero-grant" student. Alternatively, you might be awarded a partial Erasmus+ Grant, which would give you financial support for some, but not all, of your mobility period.

Additional financial support may also be available for students undertaking Erasmus+ study placements whose household income is £25,000 per year or less. Study students who qualify for this supplement will receive an additional €120 per month. Students on traineeships are eligible for an additional €20 per month.

Further financial support may also be available for students classified as disabled, dyslexic, or who have other special requirements.

Tuition Fees

As an Erasmus+ student you will not need to pay any fees to your host institution, but you will still need to pay some or all of your fees to the University of Greenwich.

Home/EU students participating in a full year Erasmus+ placement are entitled to a reduced tuition fee for the year they are abroad - for 2018/19 this will be £1385.00

If you are abroad for a placement of less than 24 weeks, you will not be entitled to the reduced fee and will need to pay the full rate of £9250.00

International students are not eligible for a tuition fee reduction 

Loans and support

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 undertake an Erasmus+ mobility period, 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 – check eligibility

International students who normally receive scholarships, grants or loans while studying in the UK should contact their loan provider or sponsor directly to check if their loans will remain payable during an Erasmus mobility period.

US students supported by the US Federal Aid Programme should note that they can only receive payment if their host institution is part of the US Federal Aid Programme.
