Erasmus grant

The Erasmus programme has been in existence for more than 25 years. Every year, more than 300 University of Amsterdam students take part in the programme. The UvA has more than 200 partner universities in Europe.

Grants are awarded to students who go to study or go on a work placement for between three months and an entire academic year at a European partner institute as part of an exchange programme between UvA and the institute.

The available options vary from one study programme to another. You can get more information from your own International Office.
