Erasmus+ students

The Erasmus+ programme

Through the Erasmus+ programme, you can study at St Mary’s on an exchange basis, which means that you are exempt from paying tuition fees directly to St Mary’s. 

View the Erasmus charterView our Erasmus Policy Statement

You will usually be studying one or two semesters at St Mary’s within your programme of study. You will be required to secure your own accommodation, but you will be eligible for the Erasmus grant. Please note that we need to have an inter-institutional agreement in place with your university in order for you to come to St Mary’s as an Erasmus+ student. If this is the case, the very first step for you is to get in touch with your International Office.


Current status of Erasmus+ programme in the UK

We will accept Erasmus+ applications in 2018/19 and 2019/20 despite the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

There is no immediate change to the UK’s participation in the Erasmus+ Programme following the EU referendum result and the UK National Agency will continue to manage and deliver the Programme across the UK.

The UK Government has confirmed that it will underwrite grant agreements for Erasmus+ signed while the UK is still a Member State, even if payments continue beyond the point of the UK’s EU exit date. Please see the UK National Agency’s website for details.

The application process

Please note that St Mary’s can only accept you through the Erasmus+ programme if you are studying at one of our partner universities. Your home university must nominate you in accordance with our inter-institutional agreement before you can apply to St Mary’s. In the first instance it will be best that you speak with your university’s Erasmus+ Coordinator or somone in your university’s International Office. After you have been nominated, we will send you instructions how to apply. Basically you will need to follow our Three steps to study abroad at St Mary's (link to just like the Study Abroad students we are receiving. As an Erasmus student, you must fill in all Erasmus+ forms provided by your university and follow the steps required in order to secure your EU grant.
