The Erasmus exchange programme, launched in 1987, offers students the opportunity to spend a long time abroad in a European country. Erasmus represents the European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students.

The programme is being implemented and funded by the European Commission under the new ERASMUS aid programme. The main objectives of this funding are to enable students to integrate with other students throughout Europe, to develop a greater awareness of European culture and to promote their academic skills in a different learning environment. Students receive an ERASMUS scholarship from the international office. In 2016/2017, the scholarship was 220 euros per month for students studying in Germany. The grant is paid in two tranches. You then log on to the UCD application portal and accept or accept the offer to study at UCD abroad. Apply for the UCD Abroad study program in the academic field where you follow most of your modules. The list of programs is available below. As soon as you accept the offer, you will receive a UCD student number and begin the first phase of registration.

Note 2: Currently, the EEA only funds one week of teacher exchanges. While additional funding may be available during the year, staff should not need a grant of more than one week. Teachers must teach 8 hours a week at the host institution. The Erasmus exchange programme also provides funds for administrative staff who spend 1 to 6 weeks (in some cases, a shorter period may be allowed, provided there is justification) during the exchange at another university. The trip must be made before September 30. 1. Go to the UCD Course Finder page2. Click Special Groups > Study Abroad > Research. You will receive a list of applications available for study abroad.
