Erasmus + Mobility Grants

Use of Erasmus+ Mobility Grants in IMBRSea

Students in enrolled in the IMBRSea programme can make use of regular Erasmus+ Mobility grants to support a part of the mobility in the programme. These grants are offered via the different participating universities. Regulations, selection success, grant amounts depend fully on each University.

Who is eligible for applying for an Erasmus+ Mobility Grant?

All students enrolled in the programme that do not benefit from another Erasmus+ grant are eligible to apply for a grant. Students that are awarded an Erasmus Mundus grant may not apply.

Frequently asked questions: 

Can I apply for an Erasmus Grant for my first semester in IMBRSea?

Yes, this is possible in case you obtained your bachelor degree at one of the participating IMBRSea Main Partner Universities. Explore with your international office when and how to apply. Keep in mind that in this case you cannot study your first semester at this university.

Do Erasmus mobility Grants restrict my mobility possibilities?

In some cases they do! In case you wish to study at the same university in semester 1 and semester 3, you will not be able to apply for an Erasmus Mobility grant for the third semester. 

What is the amount of the grant?

The exact amount depends on the university where you apply for a grant and depends on the university you plan to go to. Grants are normally awarded for 1 semester (3 months). Amounts range between 200 and 400 euro per month.
