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 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 .
