Apply for the Erasmus Grant
Students who have been selected by UAL and by the host university now need to fill in the Erasmus grant application. This is an essential document to be able to receive Erasmus funding.
This only applies to Erasmus exchanges. Please see the section on Finance for more information on Erasmus grants.
Complete the Erasmus grant application online
The link to the Erasmus grant online application will be sent to the selected students only.
To complete this application, you will first need to download the Learning Agreement, get the required signatures and upload the signed document when completing the grant application.
a) Grant Agreement for Erasmus+ Studies. This is your formal contract to receive Erasmus funding and is a legal document. You will be asked to sign this document at the IRU.
b) Learning Agreement. It is vitally important that you first discuss the classes you will be taking with the host institution and your Course Leader/Programme Director. You need to download the Learning Agreement, complete it, sign it and get it signed and stamped by the designated academic for your course at UAL (Course leader, etc.) and the host institution.
Once your Learning Agreement is signed by yourself, UAL and the host institution, you will have to upload it when you complete the online Erasmus grant application.
There is one more document that you need to read and agree with:
Important note on your Learning Agreement
The designated academic for your course at UAL (eg. Course leader) must be satisfied that the programme of study at the host institution is equivalent and therefore will be fully recognisable by UAL after successful completion.
Your Learning Agreement must be signed by the designated academic for your course before departure. Your Learning Agreement should also be signed by your host institution at this stage. It is your responsibilty to contact your host institution and ask them to sign your Learning Agreement.
All Erasmus grant applications have to be completed online (with all documents required) at least two weeks prior to departure.
On the importance of the Erasmus grant application
If you fail to submit a fully completed Erasmus grant application, including your Learning Agreement, on time, your application will not be processed. There are no exceptions. If your exchange is not supported by an Erasmus grant you will be responsible for all financial costs involved in your exchange.
To avoid disappointment please note and check the following:
- Students cannot apply for the Erasmus grant retrospectively;
- Grant applications that have missing student details, missing information of missing signatures will not be processed.
