Grant amount

The Erasmus+ grant amount is determined for every individual student based on the duration of their study period or work placement and the host country chosen. We will set a provisional amount before your departure and determine the definitive grant amount upon your return.

The provisional grant amount is calculated on the basis of the number of days you plan to spend abroad as recorded by you in the Grant Agreement and Osiris. Please consult the overview below to find out in which category your host country comes and the effect this has on your grant amount. Note that for calculation purposes, a month is defined as 30 days. The Implementation regulations for an Erasmus+ grant provide details on the way the grant amount is determined.
