Grants

On this page you can find information about the grants you can apply for when you go abroad during your studies.

You can apply for the Erasmus grant in case you:

  • are going to study at one of the European partner universities of the Faculty of Sports and Nutrition or are going to do an internship in a European country
  • did not receive the Erasmus grant before during your studies at the AUAS
  • hold a nationality different than the nationality of the destination country 
  • in case of an internship: do not receive financial support from the receiving organisation.

Have a look at the handbook on this page for more information about the scholarship and its requirements.

Please note: due to the upcoming Brexit, it is not yet certain whether you can still receive the Erasmus grant when you go to the UK. Do apply however; you will be informed about the future of the Erasmus grant and the UK as soon as we know more.

Procedure

To receive the Erasmus grant, you have to complete several forms before, during and after your time abroad. Every AUAS faculty receives a certain number of Erasmus grants per year. If there are more applications than grants, we will select students. Expected is however that most applications for the academic year 2019-2020 can be accepted.

Application deadline

The application deadline depends on the start date of your time abroad (mobility):
