Erasmus+

Information for outgoing students

The Erasmus+ Student Mobility programme enables UWL students to study at a partner institution within the EU (and some specified institutions outside the EU).

Please note that not all institutions within the Erasmus+ programme are available to UWL students on all programmes. For a full list of partner institutions and courses, please contact your relevant Academic School Erasmus+ Coordinator via the links listed below.

The Erasmus+ Student Mobility programme is a brilliant opportunity to:

  • enhance your CV  - stand out in the European graduate recruitment market
  • become immersed in a different culture
  • make new friends
  • improve your language skills.

Looking for more reasons why to go abroad? Take a look at the Erasmus+ website to learn more!

If your application to study abroad is successful, you will receive a set amount of funding to help towards travel, accommodation and living expenses. All students must be aware that some of their own personal funding may also be required.

How to take part in the Erasmus+ programme

Once you have decided to take part and have looked at the possible destinations for your study period abroad, the Erasmus+ Coordinator at your Academic School is your first point of contact. The Coordinator will provide the student with information and guidance, and will forward an application form which will need to be completed by:

  • 30 September 2017 for Semester 2 (Spring 2018)
  • 31 March 2018 for Semester 1 (Autumn 2018)

The Erasmus+ Coordinator will further assist the student in looking at the modules available at the partner institution, ensuring that the student’s academic course can be continued while abroad.

Further information about the Erasmus+ documentation requirements and grant allocation will be provided if the application is successful. Students must complete all necessary documentation as advised by the Erasmus+ Team in order to guarantee receiving the funding allocated to the mobility. Failure to complete and submit the necessary documentation within the given timeframe may result in the student becoming ineligible to receive their grant.

Applying for the Erasmus+ Mobility Grant does not guarantee the mobility will be approved.

The School Erasmus Coordinator, the UWL Erasmus+ Office and the partner institution will guide you through the process.  It is advisable that you familiarise yourself with the Erasmus+ Student Charter.
