Erasmus Study

Have you ever imagined living in the Cosmopolitan city of Madrid? Always wanted to experience the Northern Lights? Or perhaps you’d prefer to spend your exchange sampling the diverse culture of France.

What is the Erasmus+ Scheme?

Erasmus+ is a European Mobility Programme that enables you to study in Europe. UCLan has links with over 65 European partners, in 19 countries through the Erasmus+ scheme. Contact us now to see what links we have in your subject area.

Our Erasmus Charter tells you more about how UCLan provide support and guidance to students and staff wishing to take part in the mobility programme. 

Student Mobility

Erasmus+ provides students with the opportunity to study abroad in Europe as part of their degree. You can take part in study mobility at any time (apart from the first and final year) depending on the structure of your degree programme.

Students can also work abroad in Europe on a traineeship lasting 2-12 months. Read more about Erasmus Work Placements now.


The subjects you can choose from will depend on the agreement UCLan has in place with the partner institution. If you are going for a semester, you will need the equivalent of 60 UCLan credits and 120 credits for the full year.

Grant Eligibility

A grant of between €370 and €420 per month* is available to students participating in an Erasmus+ Study Placement. This funding is to help towards costs such as accommodation, and is on top of any existing grant or loan that you may be eligible to receive from Student Finance England.

There is also an extra €100 a month available for students who already qualify for additional support for Higher Education. Further assistance is available for students with special needs.

* As of 2019-20 academic year
