STUDENTS:

Applications are open on a rolling basis until funding is allocated.

Any questions please contact: GoAbroad@glasgow.ac.uk

  • Staff teaching: 5-10 working days.
  • Staff training: 2-5 working days
  • Postgraduate students: 3 months (90 days) up to 5 months depending on the partner.

Funding

Iraq, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda €820 €180/day €700 / month

Participants are expected to arrange their own travel, visa, insurance, and accommodation. The Erasmus+ funding is a contribution towards the costs of the exchange, not a full maintenance grant.

Students do not pay tuition fees to the host university and continue to be a registered Glasgow student throughout the exchange.

Supplementary funding for students/staff with disabilities

Additional funding may be available for participants with disabilities. If you would like to explore this option, please get in touch at goabroad@glasgow.ac.uk.
