This bursary amount is dependent on location, and can vary. It is available for UK students who decide to spend up to a year of their course in Europe in 2015-16 through the Erasmus+ programme. Students can receive grants of up to 300 euro per month for study, or up to 400 euro 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.
