Mobility outside of Europe

Erasmus + International Credit Mobility (ICM)

Study at a non-European university

Through funding from the EU programme Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM), Bachelor's and Master's students at Lund University have the opportunity to study at one of Lund University’s partner universities outside of Europe. This way, you can gain international experience and qualifications, and develop new contacts.

There are only a few exchange spots with ICM funding.

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

  • 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, Department of Economic History
  • Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica | School of Economics, Department of Economic History

You apply for these exchange spots during application periods, at the respective faculty.

The Erasmus+ ICM grant

The Erasmus+ ICM grant consists of two parts:

  • a subsistence allowance
  • a travel grant (calculated based on the distance between the host university and Lund University)

Both the allowance and travel grant are intended to contribute to the costs of your stay abroad (e.g. flights, visa costs, accommodation, etc.) and might not cover all costs.

Conditions to apply for ICM funding

To be eligible for an Erasmus+ ICM grant, the following conditions apply:

  • You must not have not been on an Erasmus exchange for more than a total of 12 months per study cycle (Bachelor's, Master's and research studies are counted separately), including the time period applied for in this application.
  • You must have studied at Lund University (full time) for at least one year by your date of departure.
  • You must have been nominated for Erasmus+ ICM exchange studies through Lund University.
  • You must have been admitted to a course at your host university (admission decision).
  • You must be eligible for a credit transfer upon returning to Lund University (as stated in the Learning Agreement).
  • Your exchange studies must extend over 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.
  • You may not accept another grant or other funding from EU bodies/the Swedish Council during the exchange period.
  • You must live in the host country during the study period (distance learning is not accepted).
