Aston is a recognised participant in the Erasmus+ programme, which is funded by the European Commission. This educational exchange programme offers both students and staff the opportunity to study or work in another country. Aston holds an Extended Erasmus University Charter awarded by the European Commission, and has a related Erasmus Policy Statement.
Under the Erasmus+ programme, students can apply to spend 2-12 months of their course as an exchange student at a partner university in Europe or on a work placement in Europe. Aston is proud that around 350 students are deciding to study and work abroad each year and we also welcome incoming students from partner institutions.
It has been confirmed that the Erasmus grant will extend and apply to students going on an Erasmus placement abroad during the academic year 2019/20 regardless of Brexit negotiation outcome.
