The Erasmus+ Programme allows you to study with funding at one of our partner universities in Europe. Queen Mary has Erasmus+ bilateral exchange agreements with almost 100 institutions across Europe.
The UK will participate fully in Erasmus+ for the 2020/2021 academic year, despite no longer being an EU member state.
It is currently not known if the UK will be able to access the programme after 2020/2021, however exchange destinations in Europe will continue to be available.
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.

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.
Each academic school also has a dedicated School/Department 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 School/Department Erasmus+ Coordinator is.
All eligible Erasmus+ students are eligible to receive a grant to help towards the costs of moving to another country and living abroad.
