Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility

Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) is an exchange program that enables you to study in countries outside the EU. Erasmus+ is well-known and highly valued on the Swedish and international job market.

As an Erasmus student you will study at one of Uppsala University's partner universities within Erasmus+ ICM on the same conditions as domestic students, but without having to pay any tuition fee. You will also receive a grant from the European Commission.

The Erasmus+ ICM grant

All Erasmus ICM students receive a grant of:

  • EUR 700/month
  • Travel grant (see list below for grant levels)
  • Insurance through Kammarkollegiet (Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency).

The grant is a subsidy intended to cover extra expenses associated with living abroad and will not provide full coverage. The size of the grant varies from year to year. The grant is calculated using the exchange rate on the date when the funds were received by Uppsala University from the EU Commission. Therefore the exchange rate may be more or less than the current exchange rate on the date when you receive your grant.
