About the Erasmus+ Programme
Erasmus+ is the EU’s highly regarded flagship exchange programme for students, lecturers and staff (It is the largest educational exchange programme in the world.). The programme has been running since 1987 and over three million European students have participated in it.

How does Erasmus+ work?
- The Erasmus+ exchange programme enables you to spend a semester or a year at one of our Erasmus+ partner institutions. Read more about Erasmus+ study placements.
- As a first-year student you can spend your second year (or the first semester of your second year) abroad. Some of QMUL’s four-year degree programmes (e.g. Law, SLLF) enable you to spend your third year abroad and come back to QMUL for your fourth year.
- If your degree includes a work placement or a year in industry), you can also benefit from the programme. Read more about Erasmus+ traineeships.
- Your Erasmus+ period abroad will count towards your QMUL degree.
- The programme also gives you a generous grant to study in Europe. There is additional financial support for disadvantaged students.

The importance of your academic school/department
Your school or department are central to the Erasmus+ programme: where you can go depends on the exchange agreements your department has with other European universities. Places on this long-established and prestigious scheme are also allocated by your school or department.
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+ contact. Find out who your Erasmus+ Coordinator is.
All eligible Erasmus+ students also receive a grant to help towards the costs of moving to another country and living abrod.
