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.
Global Opportunities Bursary - £1000
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.
If you are studying abroad, you can still apply for your student loan as normal through the relevant Student Loan Company. It is important that you are enrolled on the correct degree scheme which reflects your year abroad, and that you inform the SLC that you are going abroad.
You may be asked to submit a Course Abroad Form, which the Go Global team is happy to sign and stamp for you. It is your responsibility to apply for any loans and grants.
If you are spending a year abroad as part of your degree, then you will only pay 15% of your usual tuition fees to Swansea for that year.
