As part of an Erasmus+ mobility period, students are provided with an ‘individual support’ grant. This grant is a contribution towards their travel and living costs for the duration of their period abroad.  

If, due to the pandemic, a student was forced to cancel their mobility and incurred expenses such as non-refundable flight costs, they may be supported by the Erasmus+ grant and would have to provide documentary evidence to support any claim. 

Erasmus students who did not travel abroad, but who are taking part in a virtual mobility, are not entitled to grant support.
