Do I get financial support for my study mobility?
Each student receives a scholarship that partially covers the costs of the stay abroad. Scholarships vary depending on the countries of origin and destination. Your university is obliged to make the amount of the scholarship known to the student body, so you only have to ask at your international relations office to find out. You can also check the Erasmus+ programme guide for more details.
Will the courses I take abroad be recognized by my home university?
One of the basic rights that every exchange student has is full recognition by their home university of approved courses. Before leaving, each participating student signs the Learning Agreement - a document that describes the study program taught at the host university. At the end of the stay, the host university must prepare for each student a document called Transcript of Records that confirms the completed study program and the results. These documents are legally binding for all parties involved (your home and host university). However, you need to make sure that the courses are in the same field of study. We recommend you consult with your professor or the Erasmus + Offices’ representatives when choosing the courses to ensure that you will be able to match your grades.
Can I get linguistic support while studying abroad?
Universities usually offer language courses for international students. However, you should make sure that your classes will be in a language that you can understand. For example, many universities offer courses that are taught in in English.
Do I get accommodation while I study abroad?
Host universities often offer international students the possibility to stay in the dorms. However, this may not always be the case. We recommend you make sure whether you will be able to get a dorm or need to find rent before you choose your Erasmus destination, so that you know what to expect and can safely manage your budget. Pro tip! You can ask your local ESN section for advice and suggestions. Our volunteers, who were also Erasmus+ students, will help you throughout the process. They can put you in contact with Erasmus+ Alumni or with ESN sections in your destination country and give you valuable tips and trick on the best experience you are about to embark on. For information on how to apply, deadline dates etc., please contact the International Relations Office of your university.
