  • Erasmus+, extensive opportunities for students staying abroad
    1. You can go abroad for a study and/or internship as part of the Erasmus+ programme for a maximum of 12 months in each phase of study. This means you can spend up to 12 months abroad during your Bachelor’s study and up to 12 months abroad during your Master’s study for an exchange, research project or work placement.
    2. An internship period has to be 2 to 12 months, a study period has to be 3 to 12 months.
    3. You may go abroad multiple times for study and/or an internship, provided that you do not exceed the 12-month limit for each phase of study.
    4. The same applies to PhD students: you may also go abroad for study and/or an internship for up to 12 months.
    5. However, keep in mind that you might only receive an Erasmus+ grant once.
    6. More general information about Erasmus+ can be found on (in Dutch).
    7. Are you already nominated to go on exchange? Then you can find all the necessary information on Canvas.
  • What is an Erasmus+ grant?
    1. As an Erasmus+ student, you can apply for an Erasmus+ grant which you can use to help cover additional living and travel costs during your stay abroad.
    2. The grant amount is determined annually by Nuffic, the Dutch organisation for internationalisation in education, and is linked to the destination country. 
    3. The available amounts for a study exchange are shown below per destination.
    4. The grant is awarded based on the actual duration of the stay abroad. This year, there is no maximum grant period.

  • Am I eligible for an Erasmus+ grant?

    The general conditions regarding eligibility for an Erasmus+ grant are available on (in Dutch). We have provided a quick overview for you here:

    1. You remain enrolled at the UvA.
    2. Study programmes can set their own additional requirements and conditions.
    3. You will only be eligible for the grant if you are selected for a place at a partner university by your faculty. Students who are selected for this by their study programme will be automatically nominated for an Erasmus+ grant by the Central Erasmus Office of the UvA.
    4. Students who are selected for the Erasmus+ programme, but do not receive a grant, can still be placed abroad by the UvA; you are then a zero-grant Erasmus+ student.
