Universidad de Deusto Overview

The University of Deusto was inaugurated in 1886. Bilbao, a seaport and commercial city which was undergoing considerable industrial growth during that era, was chosen as the ideal location for the university. Bilbao is the centre of a metropolitan area with more than one million inhabitants, a city traditionally open to Europe. It is also an important harbour and a commercial and financial centre of the Basque Country and the north of Spain.

Swansea University currently has agreements in place with the University of Deusto for the College of Arts and Humanities and the department of Hispanic Studies.

Erasmus+ Grant - approx 280-430€

The Erasmus+ Grant is dependent on location, and varies in each country. It is available for students who decide to spend up to a year of their course in Europe in 2017-18 through the Erasmus+ programme. Students can receive grants of up to 380 euros per month for study, or up to 430 euros per month for student traineeships, depending on the country they go to. This grant is a contribution to the extra costs of studying abroad, which is why it varies by country.
