Why Study Abroad?

Why Study Abroad?

‘I chose to take part in the study abroad scheme as it gave me an opportunity to travel, before I got caught up in the world of work & also I wanted to experience living in another country’ — Study Abroad student, The University of Canterbury.

‘I chose to study abroad to gain new experiences and to travel. This is something I believe I’ve achieved, I have done so many things in the short amount of time that I have lived here.' - Study Abroad Student, Mannheim University.

Funding

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, 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.

The Global Opportunities Bursary is available for students spending a year studying abroad outside of Europe as part of their degree (except Texas).

The International Development Office provides students with a £1000 bursary, once students have submitted all the necessary paperwork.
