Erasmus+ Student Mobility Programme is one of the biggest student mobility programmes and it enables students to have a grant for the training exchange in Europe.
Students secure the training place themselves but you can also ask about them from the internationalisation services.
You can also freely familiarize yourself with the feedbacks of the earlier exchanges in SoleMOVE.
You can also check available traineeships from ErasmusIntern-traineeship database.
All degree students of Lapland UAS can apply to Erasmus+ exchange.
Students can receive the Erasmus+ training grant several times during their studies.
The exchange period is minimum of 2 months (= 60 days), maximum of 6 months.
During the exchange students should gain 5 ECTS credits /month.
Training abroad will be transferred to students degree as agreed on the learning agreement.
Erasmus+ grant is based on the duration of the exchange, the country of destination and the number of exchange students.
The grant will be paid in two parts, before (80%) and after (20%) the exchange. For 2023-2024 the amount of the Erasmus+ grant for training is:
690 €/month to group 1 countries: Denmark, Iceland, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom.
