The Erasmus+ fund can help you cover some of the expense incurred by undertaking an overseas traineeship in Europe. Erasmus+ funding is for traineeships that are 60 days or longer and take place in the European Economic Area (EEA). There are certain criteria you must meet to be eligible for funding through Erasmus+:
- If your overseas traineeship is part of your official BU placement year, then it must have been approved by your faculty's Placement Coordinator before you apply for funding
- If your overseas traineeship is voluntary (ie not part of your BU placement) then you will need to evidence how it relates to your BU degree subject area
- Your application for funding must be submitted before you start your traineeship and, in some cases, a few months in advance.
