Mobility grants

Mobility grants vary depending on the type of mobility, and the destination country. Check the different tabs below for more information. All mobility grants are coordinated by the Student Mobility Office (SME). These grants can only be obtained through the application procedure.

Each student is allowed maximum 12 months of Erasmus+ funding for studies and/or internships per cycle (Bachelor, Master, Doctorate). During his studies, besides the Erasmus+ grants, each student can receive maximum 1 FAME grant (non-EU mobility) and 1 Erasmus Belgica grant (mobility in Flanders).
