You can apply to the Erasmus+ ICM scheme if:
To apply for the Erasmus+ ICM Programme, you need to first get in touch with your school or department’s Erasmus+ Coordinator.
The decision to accept you on to the programme is taken by your academic school and the application process is dealt with in different ways.
As every department and school has a different application process, it is vital that you discuss your application with your Erasmus+ Coordinator.
Once you are selected by your school for the Erasmus+ programme, your contact details will be sent to the Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator, who will get in touch with you directly. All communication about Erasmus+ will be sent to your QMUL email address.
Please consult with your academic school to find out their application deadline.
The application period for a postgraduate non-credit bearing research exchange during 2019/20 is currently open. For their application process for research exchange mobility periods, Schools manage their own process internally and set their own deadlines for research exchange mobility periods. Selection is completed on a rolling basis until suitable participants are selected and available grant places have been distributed.
Names of postgraduate students selected by the academic department are then shared with the Global Opportunities Office, who then liaise with the host institution for the nomination process to the partner.
We want all of our students to be able to enjoy the international opportunities we offer and get the most out of their study abroad placements.
If you think you might need additional support – of whatever kind – please let us know when you are considering your application, so that we can help you with your options. It is also a good idea to discuss what additional support you might need on your exchange placement with our Disability and Dyslexia Service.
If you think you will need any extra support on your placement, we strongly recommend that you discuss your application with us and plan ahead: depending on your host university, any adjustments you might need on your placement may take some time to arrange. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and/or the Erasmus+ Manager to discuss further.
You will likely need to apply for a visa for your Erasmus+ study placement based on your country of destination. Please contact us on email@example.com so we can put you in touch with the relevant staff and provide guidance.
If you are an overseas student and seek guidance on how another visa for your Erasmus+ ICM destination country could affect your current student immigration permission as a foreign student in the UK, you are strongly advised to speak with the Advice and Counselling Service.
