Rail travel grants for Erasmus+ mobility

Lund University has a responsibility to reduce its climate impact and act as a good example/model. Therefore we want to encourage Erasmus+ students, who study or do an internship abroad, to take the train to their destination instead of flying. For the academic year 2020/21, outgoing Erasmus + students and trainees can apply for a rail travel grant.

Grant amounts:      

SEK 500 to Copenhagen            

SEK 1 000 to the rest of Denmark

SEK 2 000 to the rest of Europe

For the student there is an obligation to, within one month of arriving at the host university, send the ticket to External Relations along with a short reflection on the journey and a rationale for choosing rail travel.

The application for a rail travel grant is made at the same time, and using the same form, as the application for the Erasmus+ grant.

Support for Erasmus+ students with children

Outgoing Erasmus+ students and interns accompanied by children can apply for extra grant funding of EUR 200 per month, regardless of the number of children. Students on internship placements currently receive a special placement supplement of EUR 195 per month that students who do mobility for studies do not get. These supplements cannot be combined, but students on placements are entitled to the higher amount EUR 200 if the child requirement is fulfilled. 

The application for a special supplement for children is made at the same time, and using the same form, as the application for the Erasmus+ grant.

Additional support for Erasmus+ students with disabilities

If you are an outgoing Erasmus+ student with a disability, you and your coordinator at Lund University can apply for additional funds from the Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) together. These funds can cover up to 100 percent of all additional costs in connection with the mobility abroad.

Additional costs are increased costs which the institution or the individual participant has and which are not financed by other means, for example:

  • transport
  • teaching materials
  • housing
  • personal assistant
  • medical follow-up, physiotherapy
  • medical examination in the host country

Erasmus+ mobility to the UK

The Withdrawal Agreement foresees that the UK will continue to participate in the current EU programmes, including Erasmus+, throughout 2020. This means that students who have been offered an exchange place in the UK during 2020 can receive an Erasmus grant.
