Financial funding for students going to Europe
Students admitted to the NHH exchange programme in Europe, except Switzerland and Imperial College London, will receive the Erasmus+ student mobility grant by filling out the NHH Erasmus+ grant form.
- The amount of this grant is currently €410 per month for students travelling to a low cost country and €460 per month for students travelling to a high cost country (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and United Kingdom). Students who are travelling with children under the age of 18 can receive an additional grant of €200 per month.
- 70% of the total grant is distributed in September for students going on exchange in the fall semester (based on a four month semester) and in February for students going on exchange in the spring semester (based on a five month semester).
- The remaining 30% of the grant will be distributed the semester following your exchange, but only after you fulfil your obligations as an Erasmus+ student.
- If your exchange lasts shorter/longer than four/five months your grant amount will be adjusted accordingly.
Obligations for Erasmus+ students
As a beneficiary of the Erasmus+ grant, you have the following mandatory steps to fulfil:
- You must read the Erasmus+ student mobility charter. The charter contains information about students’ and schools’ rights and obligations in the Erasmus+ Mobility Programme.
- You must fill in the Erasmus+ grant agreement and submit it on Canvas.
- Take an Erasmus+ language test before and after your mobility (Online Linguistic Suppoert; OLS) in the language you will study in. If you achieve a score of level B1 or lower as a result of the test you will automatically receive access to an online language course. If you score higher and indicated that you would like access to an online language course in the local language, you will automatically receive access to this after completing the test. Your test score will not disqualify you from the mobility and your host school will not have access to your score. Students who will study in their native language are exempted from the test. You will receive an invitation by email to take the tests. More information on the Erasmus + Language Assessment test.
- Fill in the Erasmus+ Online Learning Agreement in the beginning of your semester abroad. You will receive an invitation to this to your NHH student e-mail address.
- Fill in the Confirmation of Stay document (Word document, 61 KB) at the end of your semester abroad. This confirmation must be signed by a coordinator at your host school and returned to NHH via Canvas. The dates in the CoS form is the basis of your calculated grant amount.
- Report back to the Erasmus+ mobility administration. You will receive an email in the end of your semester abroad, asking you to answer questions regarding your exchange semester. This questionnaire is not the same questionnaire which you will receive from NHH and you are obligated to fill in both questionnaires.
