Placement Abroad

Erasmus+ Placements


The EU Erasmus+ programme also supports business placements in other European countries. Placements in EU institutions/organisations, national diplomatic representations or organisations that manage EU programmes are not eligible for funding. Countries currently participating in the Erasmus+ programme include all EU member states, Turkey, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Macedonia.
Support is available to students for mandatory and voluntary placements of between two and twelve months, in the form of a monthly grant. Placements can be self-standing or undertaken in combination with an Erasmus+ study visit.

Further information on grants is available from the information events or directly from the International Office.
