Erasmus+ exchange is a flagship programme of the European Union which allows students to undertake a study or work placement in one of the EU countries. Please read the University’s Erasmus Policy Statement, access the full list of Erasmus+ study destinations and for information on receiving an Erasmus grant to undertake a European work placement/traineeship click here.
Who should I contact?
If you are a language student then contact Benedicte Cebrian on firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to advise you on possible study destinations and counsel you on your choices. If a foreign language is not a part of your degree then come along to a study abroad drop-in session or contact the Global Mobility Team email@example.com for further information, advice on possible study destinations and help with filling in the online application form.
Please note that no student is permitted to participate in the Erasmus+ exchange programme without the formal approval of their Programme Leader or Academic Study Abroad Adviser. You should arrange a meeting with him/her at an early stage to discuss your plans including potential destinations and module choices abroad. They will need to approve your online application, and will consider the following when deciding whether to support you:
- Your academic performance
- Course compatibility and implications if you do not pass all modules
- Whether you would be a good ambassador for Edinburgh Napier University
- Attendance record
- Your motivation for going on exchange, i.e. whether you have researched online, discussed with family, friends, and previous exchange students, and thought things through
