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 2017/18 and 2018/19 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.

This position is supported by the statement from Jo Johnson, Minister of State for Universities and Science, published on 28 June 2016:

"As the Prime Minister has stated, there will be no immediate changes following the EU Referendum, including in the circumstances of British citizens living in the EU, and European citizens living here. This includes those studying or working at UK universities. For students, visitors, businesses and entrepreneurs who are already in the UK or who wish to come here, there will be no immediate change to our visa policies. The referendum result does not affect students studying in the EU, beneficiaries of Erasmus+ or those considering applying in 2017. The UK's future access to the Erasmus+ programme will be determined as a part of wider discussions with the EU. More broadly, existing UK students studying in the EU, and those looking to start in the next academic year, will continue to be subject to current arrangements."

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 agreement before you can apply to St Mary’s. 

Please speak with your home university’s Erasmus+ Coordinator or International Office. 

If you are nominated and your application to St Mary’s is successful, you must fill out a Learning Agreement, listing the modules you intend to take whilst studying at St Mary’s.
