Erasmus studies

The first thing to do in order to get an Erasmus scholarship is to apply for Erasmus exchange studies through your faculty. If you get nominated for Erasmus studies, you can proceed with applying for a grant.

Checklist for Erasmus students

Please note that this checklist is intended only for students who have applied for exchange studies and been nominated for Erasmus studies by their faculties.

The size of your scholarship is based on the length and the destination of your studies. 70% of the scholarship is payed after you have:

  • finished a diagnostic language test online in case you are offered one by the EU Commission. 
  • uploaded a Certificate of Attendance signed by the host university to confirm your start date and planned end date.

The rest of your scholarship will be payed when you have:

  • uploaded a Certificate of Departure to confirm the end date of you studies. Upload it in the Exchange portal under "Outgoing students - Uploading documents".
  • finished the online evaluation that you will receive by e-mail.
  • finished the second language test online in case you are offered one by the EU Commission.

The second payment will be adjusted depending on the final length of your exchange study period.

Scholarship sums for Erasmus studies

The amount of the scholarship may vary from year to year. Your grant differs depending on what country you chose to study in. The grant sum is also calculated on the number of months and days you spend at your host university.  You need to be register for full-time studies (30 ECTS/semester) at the host university. Note that you have to study abroad for at least three months in order to be eligible for the scholarship.

(The payments generally take around three weeks and they will be made in a fixed exchange rate set the day that the university received funding from the European Union.)

Erasmus+ students who will travel with children can apply for additional funding. Please contact Erasmus+ Institutional coordinator Ulrika Åstrand (013-282802) well in advance for help with such an application.

Diagnostic Language tests and Courses online

Erasmus students must do a mandatory, diagnostic online test in their intended study language before the start of their study periods and a follow-up test after their exchange studies. This only applies if you are going to study in Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, Gaelic, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovene, and Spanish. 

Information and link to the online test will be sent to you by email. If your first test result is B1 or lower, you will get the possibility to participate in a free and voluntary online language course in order to improve your language skill. Even if you get a higher result you can contact LiU if you want to take a free online course in either the test language or the local language.

For questions on free courses or language tests, please contact erasmusstipendium@liu.se.

Improve your language skills

Are you planning on going to your exchange study destination early on to take a language course before your exchange studies? You can apply for Erasmus grant money for language course days as well. The course should be either in the language of the receiving country or in your intended study language. Please note that English, Norwegian and Danish are excepted from this offer. The language course can be arranged either by a university or by another organization. Show us that you have taken the course by e-mailing a course certificate that states the course dates and that you have attended. Please e-mail the certificate to erasmusstipendium@liu.se.

Please note that we cannot guarantee you this extra grant in advance; it depends on whether or not we have sufficient funding.
