Your University Questions, Answered.
I'm a potential Politics, non-EU student and I'm keen to participate in a work placement through the Erasmus+ programme, am I eligible?
Hi Yen, thank you for getting in touch with us through #AskUEA!
The short answer to your question about eligibility is yes – any student can undertake a placement in Europe and can get an Erasmus grant. This isn’t exclusively for EU students, providing you meet the usual standard terms & conditions (such as it being a minimum of 90 days placement, and being part of your degree).
However with our Politics degree this would only allow for a semester abroad (generally second semester of second year) and that would have to be a study placement at one of our partner universities. It would not allow for a work placement.
If you are interested in studying abroad you can find out more about the opportunities, and our partner institutions, on our webpages.
