Erasmus Master studies

General Requirements to Erasmus+ Exchange

Erasmus+ programme

The Erasmus+ Studies Programme, programme KA131 2021/27, facilitates students' academic stay at a university in an EU member state or in countries associated to the Program (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and the Republic of North Macedonia , Serbia and Turkey). 

Switzerland has been excluded from participating in the Erasmus + program. To apply for a grant within the Swiss-European Mobility Program fund, it is necessary to contact directly the International Relations Office of the Swiss university of destination. You can consult more information in the website.

United Kingdom has been excluded as well. Mobilities to this country are under the UAB Exchange Programme.

This call for applications aims to promote the Erasmus+ programme among PhD students at the UAB. The Erasmus+ programme enables posterior recognition of courses taken abroad. This recognition is in accordance with the learning agreement that the PhD students has made with the coordinator of the PhD programme before leaving.

PhD students pay the fees to the university of origin and have free registration at the host institution, where they have the right to the same services as local PhD students, in the same conditions. The host university must make the necessary information available about the stay, the accommodation options and the registration procedure.

The fact of undertaking an exchange visit to the destination university does not give the automatic right to obtain the qualification from that university.

The award of places at the destinations of this competition does not necessarily imply the granting of financial assistance.

The scale to be applied is obtained from the sum of the qualified credits multiplied by the value of their grade and on a scale from 0 to 10 divided by the total number of qualified credits. Only the grade obtained in the last call including the NOT SUBMITTED / NOT EVALUABLE, will be taken into account, which will compute with a numerical grade of 0.
  • Language level accreditation will be an element that will count up to a maximum of 2 points during the selection process when comparing the applications submitted. The accreditation of language level must be delivered to the Academic Management of the center where the student studies while the application period is open. All students who wish to participate in an Erasmus+ study stay and who do not have any document that proves their level of language may take a test at the Language Service that will allow them to obtain a certificate of accreditation of linguistic knowledge.

Call for Erasmus+ Master 2023-2024


SEPIE (Servicio Español para la Internacionalización de la Educación) is the entity that distributes the economic funds from the European Union to grant the students participating in the Erasmus+ programme. The grants will be awarded according to the same academic record criteria used during the selection process until they cover all the funds awarded.

The beneficiary students will receive the grant from the Erasmus+ program by bank transfer in two payments: the first, after leaving, for an approximate amount of 70% of the total awarded. To access the first payment, you must have submitted the original signed grant agreement, completed the banking data section at the SIA and delivered the arrival certificate. All four steps are essential to receive the payment.

The second payment, with the remaining amount, will be made when the student has returned and has completed the following procedures: provide the certificate of stay signed by the host university (where the start and end dates of the stay must also be clearly stated: day, month and year) and have completed the report on the stay (EU Survey). For the month of start and end of stay, which are usually not full months, the day of return and return will be taken into account and will be paid proportionally to the days of real stay of those months (calculating based on that one month is equal to 30 days).

Additional aid due to economic disadvantage

Students who receive the grant from Community funds during the academic year 2023/24 and who during the academic year 2022/23 or 2023/24 have been beneficiaries of a general grant from the Ministry, will receive an additional grant of €250/month.

Complementary amount to the individual support for ecological displacement – Students who choose to make an ecological displacement will receive a unique contribution of EUR 50 as a complementary amount to the individual support and up to 4 days of additional individual support to cover the travel days on a round trip, if appropriate. The payment of this complementary amount will be made at the end of the exchange stay once the Certificate of stay has been provided. If you have made an ecological trip on the way back and/or on the return of your exchange stay, you will have to fill in this form and attach signed the affidavit. It is considered ecological trip the one made by train, bus or shared car.

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 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 .
