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.
Erasmus Student Charter
Birmingham City University has an Erasmus Student Charter awarded by the European Commission. It provides a general framework that explains what an Erasmus student is entitled to expect and do.
