Erasmus+ beyond Europe (ICM)
The Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) Programme offers you the incredible opportunity of funded study at one of our partner institutions beyond Europe. You will gain valuable international academic experience within an established study exchange framework – and have the support of a generous grant while you study.
Queen Mary currently has one Erasmus+ ICM exchange agreement with a partner institution in a country beyond Europe. If you are an enrolled Queen Mary student, you are eligible to apply for a funded Erasmus+ ICM student exchange to this institution if your department has signed an agreement with this institution.
Your department is central to the programme: it handles both the application process and the allocation of Erasmus+ ICM places to our partner institutions.
How does Erasmus+ ICM work?
- The Erasmus+ ICM Programme enables you to spend a semester or a year on exchange at a Queen Mary Erasmus+ ICM partner institution.
- Postgraduate students and doctoral candidates conducting research: you can spend three to five months abroad during or outside of term time (subject to available grants and places, as well as to approval and admission by the partner institution).
- Your study period abroad is recognised as part of your Queen Mary degree.
- Erasmus+ ICM students may also receive a generous grant* to help towards the living and travel costs incurred to go on exchange.

Your Erasmus+ Coordinator
Each academic school also has a dedicated Erasmus+ Coordinator who will guide you through the application process and approve your module choices. They are your key Erasmus+ ICM contact.
