All students who go on a student exchange to an educational institution with which UiS has an Erasmus+ agreement get an Erasmus+ grant. The grant is given automatically, and the students to whom this applies will receive information directly from the International Office.
- €400 per month for Denmark, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Sweden, the UK and Austria.
- €350 per month for other countries.
Students on traineeships receive an extra €100 per month.
Most of the grant will be paid at the start of the semester while the rest of the grant (at least one month's grant) will be withheld until the end of the exchange.
What requirements are there?
- Grant agreement
Payment of the grant will be regulated by a grant agreement which is entered into between UiS and the individual student. The agreement must be completed and signed before the grant can be paid.
- Confirmation that insurance has been taken out
It must be confirmed in the grant agreement that insurance has been taken out for the exchange. The insurance company name and policy number must be provided.
- Language proficiency test
Students who will be studying in English or certain other European languages must complete an Online Linguistic Support (OLS) language level test both before and after the exchange.

- Submitting a report
Following the exchange, the student must provide a report which is sent to the students automatically from Mobility Tool-
- Confirmation of the duration of the exchange
As the grant is paid per day of the exchange, confirmation of the duration of the exchange from the host educational institution must be provided by the end of the exchange.
