Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the world's largest exchange programme and offers both studies and internships in Europe.
    • As Erasmus+ student you do not pay tuition fee when traveling to another Erasmus+ institution
    • You can exchange more than once – both on bachelor and master level
    • You receive an Erasmus Grant

    As a Nord University student you do not need to apply for a Erasmus+ grant. Students who have had an approved application for an exchange to an Erasmus+ partner university or an application for practice in Europe will automatically have their application for a scholarship processed.

  • When you travel as an Erasmus+ student, there are some documents that must be completed both before, during your stay and after returning home:

    1. Grant Agreement
    2. Online Learning Agreement (OLA)
    3. Confirmation of Arrival 
    4. Participant report

    In addition, Erasmus+ students must undergo a language course or an online language test (Online Language Support) This is free for Erasmus+ students.

    Requirements for scholarship:

    • The studies or internship abroad must be approved as part of the degree at Nord University.
    • It is only possible to study at an institution that has an Erasmus+ cooperation agreement with Nord University
    • For studies: EUR 470-530 per month
    • For placements: EUR 620-680 per month
    • Green travel grant: EUR 50
    • Students with fewer opportunities: additional grant for EUR 250 per month

    The grant amount will vary depending on the length of stay, host country and living situation.

    Payment of scholarship:

    The scholarship is paid in two or three installments depending on the length of the stay abroad. At the start of the stay, 80 % of the scholarship amount is paid for the entire stay. The rest is recalculated after providing documentation that confirms the length of stay and is paid approx. 1 month after the end of your stay abroad.

    Students who withdraw before they have spent two months abroad must repay the full amount of the scholarship they have been paid.

  • The Erasmus+ programme promotes equal access and equal opportunities for participation for all students regardless of background and social and health conditions. The following students are defined as students with fewer opportunities:

    • Students with refugee status
    • Students with children, regardless of whether the child is on the trip or not
    • Students with disabilities and permanent chronic illnesses that prevent full participation in society on an equal basis with others (doctor's certificate required).


    Students with fewer opportunities who participate in the Erasmus+ programme are entitled to an additional grant. Apply for additional grants.

  • The EU Commission encourages all participants in the Erasmus+ programme to consider sustainable travel methods when traveling on an Erasmus+ stay abroad.

    In the Erasmus+ programme you can get an additional grant of 50 Euro and up to four travel days with a grant if you travel "green" on an exchange or internship - by choosing train, bus or other public transport rather than flying.

    It is a requirement that at least 50 % of the journey must be completed with sustainable means of transport.

  • In the Erasmus+ programme, it is also possible for students to get grants for shorter stays.
