Study abroad with Erasmus+

As a current undergraduate student, you have the opportunity to study abroad to gain experience studying at a partner institution in Europe.

The Erasmus+ student mobility programme enables you to study or a work in Europe as part of your degree and students receive an EU grant of between €280 - €330 per month. Students who go on an exchange for a full year will have reduced tuition fees of only £1,385. 

Note: If you're interested in taking part, an expression of interest must be sent to the International Office by 15 January 2017 .

If you choose to study during your exchange you are able to stay from 3 to 12 months, alternatively if you choose to work, you are able to remain on the programme for 2 to 12 months.

To study abroad as an exchange student you must:

  • Be registered at the university as an undergraduate student;
  • Have successfully completed your first year of undergraduate study;
  • Have sufficient linguistic ability to be able to benefit from a study period abroad in case teaching is not in English;
  • Be nominated by your school to take part in the scheme – view the list of academic coordinators;
  • Erasmus+ study placements are not available to students in the final year of their programme, unless they apply for the traineeship mobility after completion of their studies at CCCU;
  • Placements are only available for combined honours students where both departments are satisfied that an appropriate curriculum is on offer.

You can go to any European university that has a bilateral agreement with CCCU. Partner institutions vary from one subject area to another and may change during the year.

To apply for the Erasmus+ exchange programme contact the International Office for more details by emailing  erasmus@canterbury.ac.uk or get in touch with the relevant Erasmus+ Coordinator in your School.

Further information

Alongside the following, if you'd like to speak to someone and find out more, contact erasmus@canterbury.ac.uk .

The promotion of language learning and linguistic diversity is one of the objectives of Erasmus+.

Assessment of competence in the language of study or work before and after student mobility is now mandatory for students undertaking an exchange of more than two months; except for students whose native language is the language of study or work.

The results of the language assessment test carried out by before your departure will not stop you from taking part in the exchange, whatever the result, unless the receiving University has specified the language level required in the Bi-institutional Agreement.

Disabilities, mental health problems or learning difficulties are not a barrier to study abroad.

If you have special needs and are interested in going on an exchange the first step should be to discuss it with your tutor and Erasmus+ academic coordinator for your subject, who can tell you which universities have agreements with CCCU and help you look into what support they can give you. We also advise you to contact our Student Support, Health and Wellbeing service for confidential advice. The Erasmus+ team in the International Office are also happy to meet with you to help you prepare for your exchange.

If you are a student with special needs and are going on an Erasmus+ exchange, you can apply for additional funding on top of the standard Erasmus+ grant.

Erasmus+ students receive an EU grant of between €280 – €330 a month to contribute towards accommodation and living expenses. There’s also an extra €100 a month available for students from disadvantaged groups (this is students from households with annual incomes of £25,000 or less). Please note that students will not be required to pay this back, because it is not a loan.

Students who are undertaking an Erasmus+ study or work placement enjoy a reduced tuition fee, up to £1,385 (applicable only to students who go on an exchange for the full academic year; terms and conditions apply). They are allowed to apply for tuition fee loans of up to £1,385 to meet the costs of their tuition at HEIs in England and Wales.

The receiving institution will not ask CCCU exchange students to pay fees for tuition, registration, examinations, access to laboratory and library facilities during your mobility period. Nevertheless, they may be charged small fees on the same basis as local students for costs such as insurance, student unions and the use of miscellaneous material.

Expression of interest to be sent to the International Partnerships and Development Office.
