Circle U. Student Union

Where will you go next semester?

If you are a student you have the possibility to go to a Circle U. university for student mobility.

The Erasmus+ grant might cover some of your expenses. Please contact your home university for funding opportunities.

You may apply for funding for shorter stays or for full semesters abroad. For students, these are examples of stays that might be eligible for support: 

  • Participation in summer courses
  • Blended intensive programs
  • Study semester abroad
  • Partner days
  • International weeks
  • Seminars and workshops at higher education institutions
  • Traineeships

A general tip is to contact your home university early to find out if your stay is eligible for support and to plan your visit. If you are going to a partner university, contact your home university first to get relevant information.
