Incoming Erasmus Students - Welcome!
EU referendum result: Incoming or outgoing students currently studying (or about to study in 2017-18) under the Erasmus+ programme are not affected by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. Your immigration status will not change and you will continue to be eligible to receive Erasmus grant funding until at least as long as the UK remains a member of the EU. For the latest information, please visit: www.le.ac.uk/brexit
Thank you for your interest in studying at the University of Leicester under the Erasmus exchange programme. The University of Leicester welcomes more than 200 Erasmus exchange students each year, and has more than 100 Erasmus agreements with Universities throughout Europe. Read our Erasmus Policy Statement.
To take part in the Erasmus programme at Leicester, you need to first contact the departmental Erasmus coordinator at your home institution to express your interest.
You can only study under the Erasmus programme if your home University has an Erasmus agreement in place with us. If we do not hold an Erasmus agreement with your home University, you may be able to come to the University of Leicester on a fee-paying basis with the Study Abroad Programme.
