Erasmus Exchange Programme

Munich - Erasmus web page

Spending the year in Munich opened my eyes to how connected Europe is and just how many experiences there are out there.

I have met new people and broadened my knowledge of cultures and the architecture to go with them. I would highly recommend the programme.

We offer Erasmus schemes as part of our BSC Architecture and MEng Civil Engineering courses.

Why take part in our Erasmus programmes?

Students who have studied abroad demonstrate motivation, initiative and independence, plus a working knowledge of another language. These are all qualities employers are looking for and the Erasmus Exchange Programme is the perfect way to acquire them.

Erasmus is the European Union's flagship educational exchange programme for Higher Education. It was introduced with the aim of increasing cross-cultural exchange and academic mobility among university undergraduates within Europe.

Erasmus forms part of the current EU Lifelong Learning Programme and provides the opportunity for students to undertake part of their academic studies within a host country.

Erasmus finances

If you take part in an Erasmus Exchange (or take your work placement in an EEA country) then you could qualify for an Erasmus grant funded by the European Commission to help with some of your expenses.

If you spend the full academic year on Erasmus Exchange and are subject to the UK student support arrangements, then you might also qualify for a reduction in your tuition fee to the University of Bath.
