Funding for Study Abroad

 

Study Abroad Programmes

The University offers two Study Abroad programmes to its students:

  • ERASMUS European programmes are subject specific links which we have with around 50 partner European universities and are for 1 semester as part of a 3 year undergraduate degree programme, or for a Third Year abroad as part of a 4 year programme. Students continue to pay tuition fees to the University of Worcester in the normal way. You would need to consider the cost of subsistence abroad (including accommodation) and travel to and from the host university (including travel insurance). Students studying abroad as part of their course may apply for student finance from Student Finance England  (SFE). There is an Erasmus grant available to contribute towards costs which is approximately 250 to 350 euros per month and you may also wish to apply to SFE for a Travel Grant. 
  • INTERNATIONAL non-European exchanges cover most subjects and offer study abroad opportunities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and USA. These are usually for 1 semester as part of a 3 year undergraduate degree programme, or for a Third Year abroad as part of a 4 year programme. Tuition fees continue to be paid to the University of Worcester in the normal way. You would need to think about the cost of subsistence abroad (including accommodation), a visa, travel to and from the host University (including travel insurance) and healthcare insurance. Students studying abroad as part of their course may apply for student finance and a Travel Grant from Student Finance England. 

 

Travel Grant

The Travel Grant is available via Student Finance England and covers the cost of all necessary qualifying travel, less a disregard of £303. This means the student must fund the first £303 of their travel themselves. The grant also covers other incidental costs such as visas, vaccinations and medical insurance.
