University Of Aberdeen Erasmus
Erasmus is a European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. The current programme cycle,
Erasmus+, will run from 2014 to 2020, with a proposed budget of €16 billion.
Erasmus+ provides students in higher education with the opportunity to study or work in Europe for two to twelve months (per university cycle) as part of their degree.Erasmus exchange is not just for students of modern languages, it is directed towards students of all degree programmes. An Erasmus exchange usually forms an integral part of a student’s degree programme and so counts as part of the relevant minimum criteria as prescribed in the degree
regulations. It does not add an additional year to your study programme.
The Erasmus exchange programme enables students to study or work in another European country as part of their degree programme. The University of Aberdeen has links with over 200 universities across Europe and the opportunities for study abroad depend on the exchange agreements which have been signed in your degree programme.
All students, regardless of their nationality, are eligible to participate in this programme. Erasmus students must be registered as full-time students while abroad and fulfil the academic requirements.
Students arrange for their tuition fees to be paid as normal to their sending (home) institution while they are abroad.Students studying abroad with the Erasmus programme are
normally eligible to receive funding in the form of a grant.
Erasmus activities are carried out with the support of the European Commission within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme.
