Erasmus+ KA171 Third Countries


The Erasmus+ Program of the European Commission promotes the mobility of the university community.

Action Erasmus+ KA171 of this program provides funds for mobility with third countries (Third Countries) from 2021 to 2027.

With the funds awarded to it under the Erasmus + Third Countries KA171 program, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) is calling for a series of grants for UAB Student Mobility.

The Spanish agency for Erasmus+ SEPIE offers institutions and organizations participating in the Erasmus+ program specific support on topics related to inclusion (special needs, refugees, people with less resources), which you will find in this link. In this document you will find more information.

Participants, students and teaching and administrative staff, will be able to present documentation to receive additional mobility aid. Inclusion support is financial support to cover additional costs for students and staff with fewer opportunities who participate in mobility activities of the Erasmus+ program. To access this support, participants must have a recognized and legally qualified disability of a degree equal to or greater than 33%, or suffer from physical, mental or health problems duly certified through the corresponding medical certification, as well as comply with the rest of admissibility criteria established in the Program.

The amount will cover 100% of the actual subsidized costs that are requested, directly related to your disability, provided that they are not covered through the budgetary categories of "travel" (if applicable) and "individual support", including the additional aid for students with fewer opportunities. (Among the subsidized expenses are the following: special/adapted transportation of the participant in the host country, escorts, professional services, preparatory visits and other expenses.)

Request the additional allowance using this form, for the Erasmus KA131 and KA171 program.

All participants who request "Apoyo a la inclusión" based on actual costs will have to prove their degree of disability and documentably justify to the institution of higher education of origin or coordinator of the mobility consortium the actual expenses corresponding to the amount of the additional aid received .

Faced with the Covid-19 pandemic, we require all students to stay within the KA171 2023 program, to accredit the coverage of travel and accident assistance insurance (minimum €30,000) that includes medical, surgical and civil liability expenses in the country of destination.

If the host university/country requires specific insurance, it will not be necessary to take out the additional insurance of €30,000 (submit justification)

The insurance is not covered by the Erasmus+ KA171 aid, it is borne by the participant.



The application period will remain permanently open, from November 10, 2023 to March 15, 2026 (see section 9 of the call- Calendar where you will find the deadlines for application and resolution)

Interested persons must fill in the online application and attach the required documentation
