Erasmus+ Study Scholarship

Erasmus+ Study Scholarships are available for UT students who will study at a partner university within the EU for 3 to 12 months. The value of your Erasmus+ Scholarship depends on your destination, with a monthly allowance varying between € 240 and € 360 in the academic year 2022-2023 (see Erasmus Scholarship Amounts for specific amounts).

Conditions

  • UNITED KINGDOM

    BREXIT MEASURES FOR ERASMUS+ STUDENTS

    After Brexit, the UK will no longer take part of the Erasmus+ programme. Nevertheless, since there is still budget left from the Erasmus+ 2020 programme , we will still be able to grant most applications from students departing to the UK in Fall 2022.

    Once the 2020 budget is fully granted, students who are going to the UK are no longer eligible for an Erasmus+ Scholarship. UT will automatically offer these students a Twente Mobility Fund Scholarship or a Holland Scholarship (depending on availability) instead.

  • SWITZERLAND

    Students who go to Switzerland on an exchange can not qualify for an Erasmus+ grant because Switzerland is not one of the program countries. Switzerland has the "Swiss - European Mobility Program", which is financed with a Swiss subsidy. Students must apply for the scholarship at the Swiss host institution. More information about this scholarship can be found on the Movetia website.

  • DOUBLE DEGREE STUDENTS

    Double degree students can only apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship if they meet the following requirements:

    • The student is enrolled at UT during the entire mobility.
    • The programme abroad counts toward the students’ UT degree. (The EC’s obtained with the mobility must count for UT degree. If the EC’s count for the partner's degree, the scholarship can’t be granted by UT.)
    • The mobility can’t take place in the country of origin.
    • The student can’t apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship at the partner institution as well (Erasmus+ or Erasmus Mundus). A statement from the partner may be requested.
    • A student can only apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship if the mobility takes place at one host institution for at least 3 months. A mobility at more than one institution is not allowed.

    All parties must sign all required forms before the deadline (not after your arrival at the host institution).  If your application is finished too late, you will no longer be eligible for a scholarship.

Application procedure

All applications will take place via your registration in Mobility-Online. The application for a scholarship will automatically appear in your workflow.

Before your departure, you are required to take the following steps:

After you have finished the required steps and your scholarship has been granted, you will receive a provisional amount of 75% of the scholarship.  (The final amount is calculated at the end of your mobility, based on your true starting and end date, considering any changes that might occur to the dates during your mobility.)

During the mobility

The section ‘During the mobility’ in your workflow within Mobility-Online registers any changes to your mobility programme (e.g. changes in dates or courses). The changes will be added to your Digital Learning Agreement and need to be digitally signed for approval by all parties.

Extension of the mobility period

If you want to request an extension of your mobility programme abroad, send an email request to your faculty contact person and studyabroad@utwente.nl. This request has to be submitted no later than one month before the scheduled end date of your exchange programme. Only if a request for extension is done and approved before this deadline, the extension will contribute to a recalculation of your scholarship!

After the mobility

After you have finished these final steps, you will receive the remaining amount of your scholarship.
The final amount will be calculated based on the dates of your stay in the 'after the mobility' section of your Digital Learning Agreement. If your dates have changed after your Grant Agreement was approved, the total amount will be recalculated along with the final payment.

Please be aware that if you fail to meet all of the scholarship requirements mentioned above (before, during and after the mobility), the UT reserves the right to cancel the allocation of the scholarship.

All steps are required based on very strict Erasmus+ guidelines. In case an application remains incomplete after your mobility, the advance amount will have to be paid back in full.

ERASMUS STUDENT NETWORK

Most partner universities organise an introduction period to acquaint you with international student life. The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) will help you on location and also organise activities for you and other Erasmus students.
