Study in Europe

Study in Europe with Erasmus+

  • Study on the continent with Erasmus+: the European Commission’s student exchange programme for the EU.

  • Work with your programme leader to match your UEL modules to a similar programme abroad.
  • Pay no extra tuition fees, receive student finance as usual, AND get a grant of between €280-€330 grant per month spent abroad!
  • No need to know a different language – but you will be supported if you choose to learn while you’re out there!
  • Experience a new culture, anywhere from Madrid to Perugia.

How does it work?

The Erasmus+ Timeline
  1. Research your Erasmus+ options. Look at which institutions appeal to you, and find the ones which have modules that match your options at UEL.
  2. Speak with your Programme Leader: check that the modules you like will fit into your UEL programme, and find out how going abroad will affect your degree programme.
  3. Fill out the Study Abroad application form (see below).
  4. If successful, you will be notified and nominated to your host university, at which point you will be invited to select modules.
    • You will then fill out a Learning Agreement to confirm your modules and have them approved by your tutors at UEL.
    • We will then ask for your Bank Details so that we can pay your European Commission-funded Erasmus+ grant.
  5. Have a great time abroad.


Applications to study abroad in the second term of 2017-18 close on the 24th of November 2017. Come to one of our information sessions to find out more.
