Applying for the Erasmus Programme

College of Communication

The Erasmus programme offers a wide range of destinations. So take the time to carefully study the different possibilities and prepare. Students are encouraged to begin their orientation approximately one year ahead of the planned date of departure and to bear in mind the deadlines and different requirements of the Erasmus programme. Students are also advised to start taking (additional) language courses at an early stage.

What are the requirements?

To be considered eligible for the Erasmus programme you have to meet the following requirements:

  1. You are enrolled at the UvA as a full-time student;
  2. You will have obtained at least 120 EC at the time of departure;
  3. You completed the application, including a good motivational letter/study plan;
  4. Your programme has recognised the courses you will be taking at the host institution (during the exchange, you will be taking electives);
  5. You have a grade average of 7 (this is not a prerequisite but a guideline);
  6. To be eligible for an Erasmus scholarship you have to study abroad for at least 3 months. Students can qualify for an Erasmus scholarship for a maximum of 12 months per study phase (Bachelor, Master, PhD, internship).

The second deadline for remaining places will follow on Monday, 15 June 2020, 17:00. If you apply for the second deadline your exchange will take place in the second semester of the academic year 2020-2021.

When is the information session?

During this event, students can attend different sessions about studying abroad, amongst others about the Erasmus programme for Communication Science. Also, you can meet with students who have been on exchange already. In January, another information session about the Erasmus programme will be organised for students of Communication Science. Keep an eye on the study announcements for updates about the specific dates and times.
