Erasmus+ logo Erasmus+ offers UK undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to study or work abroad in one of the other 33 Programme Countries, as part of their degree. The Erasmus + programme provides opportunities for students to improve their skills, enhance their employability and gain cultural awareness.

What is Erasmus+?

The programme funds students to study in a receiving institution for a period of over three months and obtain credits which are then recognised by BCU. Students can also do a traineeship abroad for a period of over two months.

What is an Erasmus+ Grant?

Students may receive a grant or partial grant to contribute to the increased costs that the mobility period abroad generates. There is Erasmus+ paperwork you must complete throughout your mobility.
