Erasmus+ ICM outside Europe

Every year, a few students are given the chance to study at one of our partner universities outside Europe through the EU International Credit Mobility (ICM) programme.

Bachelor's and Master's students at Lund University have the opportunity to apply for exchange studies outside Europe with an ICM grant. Note that there are limited ICM grants available each year, and only students at certain faculties are eligible to apply – see below.

The ICM grant consists of two parts – the grant and a travel allowance – which are intended to help cover extra costs during your time abroad (such as flight costs, visas or accommodation). Note that it will not cover all costs in connection with the exchange.

Applications for available places are made through your faculty’s announcements for exchange studies.

Places available for the academic year 2022–2023

During the academic year 2022–2023, there is ICM funding available for exchanges at the following universities for students from the following faculties:

  • Hebrew University of Jerusalem | Faculties of Humanities and Theology, Faculty of Social Sciences
  • Bethlehem University | Faculties of Humanities and Theology
  • Stellenbosch University | School of Economics and Management, Department of Economic History
  • Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica | School of Economics and Management, Department of Economic History

To be eligible to apply for an ICM grant, you must meet the following requirements:

You must

  • have studied full time at Lund University for at least one year by the time of departure.
  • have been nominated for Erasmus+ exchange studies outside Europe through Lund University.
  • have been admitted to studies at your host university (admission decision).
  • have been promised credit transfer upon returning to Lund University, in accordance with your 'Learning Agreement'.
  • live in the host country throughout the period of the exchange. Remote learning is not allowed.

You may not

  • have been on an Erasmus+ exchange for more than a total of 12 months per level of studies (Bachelor's and Master's studies are counted separately), including the time period applied for in the application.
  • accept another grant or other funding from EU bodies/the Swedish Council for Higher Education during the exchange period.

Your exchange studies must last for at least three and no more than twelve months. If your period of study changes so that it is in fact shorter than three months, the grant must be repaid.
