Take a study period abroad with an Erasmus+ grant.
You can apply for an Erasmus + grant if you want to study at an EU/EEC higher education institution, with which UCL has a cooperative agreement.
More details further down the page.
In the case of insufficient Erasmus+ or Nordplus funds in relation to the number of applicants, we award grants according to the following criterion: Students who have previously been on an Erasmus+ or Nordplus study period abroad will have a low priority.
The subsistence grant amounts to EUR 420-470 per month, depending on what is the host country (2020/2021 rate).
The grant will be paid out through your Danish NemKonto account, and we require your Danish CPR (personal identification number) for the payment. It is therefore a requirement that you have a Danish bank account identified as your NemKonto. 80% of the grant will be paid before the start of your study period abroad, and the last 20% at the end of the period, when all the necessary documents have been handed in. You will receive information about the necessary documents via email.
You apply for the grant in connection with your online application for a period of study abroad.
The deadline for applying for an Erasmus+ grant is:
You will receive an email from the International Team, informing you whether you have been awarded the grant, or not.
If you are awarded the grant, the International Team will send you additional documents by email to be completed before leaving.
Erasmus+ places special emphasis on helping students with physical, mental or health conditions, on account of which they are not able to take an Erasmus+ study period abroad without extra financial support. Students with special needs can therefore seek extra support over and above the normal Erasmus+ grant.
You may be eligible for extra financial support in connection with your Erasmus+ mobility in the following areas: accessible accommodation, travel assistance, medical assistance, various equipment, adaptation of teaching materials, a travelling companion, etc. You also have the option to increase your monthly rate if you have to bring your child along.
If you want to apply for an Erasmus+ grant for students with special needs, when preparing for your Erasmus+ study period abroad, please describe your special needs and the extra expenses you will incur because of them.
You can also contact the International Team for help in completing the Erasmus+ application form for students with special needs.
Please note that if you return home early and thus cancel your Erasmus+ study period, you will ALWAYS have to repay THE WHOLE AMOUNT of your Erasmus grant, regardless of what expenses you may have already incurred.
Only in special cases, due to force majeure, will you be allowed to keep the grant. Force majeure is defined as: 'An unforeseeable exceptional situation or event beyond the participant's control and not attributable to error or negligence on his/her part'.
