Inclusion support within the Erasmus+ programme

If you have a disability or one or several children, you can apply for inclusion support to cover additional costs that exchange studies or a traineeship abroad may result in.

Students with permanent or long-term disabilities, including disabilities caused by physical or mental illness, are entitled to a special inclusion supplement. To obtain this top-up you need to indicate it in the application form for your Erasmus+ exchange or traineeship.

You must also provide a certificate issued by a coordinator for pedagogical support at the university or by a licensed doctor. Such certificates are considered sensitive information and will be handled accordingly.

If you have children, regardless if they will accompany you during your Erasmus+ exchange or traineeship, you can receive a top-up grant (regardless of number of children). State this directly in your application form for your Erasmus+ exchange or traineeship in MoveON and upload the family certificate from the Swedish Tax Agency that confirms that you are a guardian of the child/children. The certificate must indicate your and your child(ren)'s names and your relationship to each other.

If you have extra costs that exceed the inclusion support top-up, you can apply for inclusion support for actual costs. The application for inclusion support for actual costs must be justified by the applicant and approved by the Swedish Council of Higher Education (UHR).

Eligibility requirements

  • Your costs have to exceed the monthly value of the inclusion support top-up (as described above), if you have already been granted one of those.
  • If you have already been granted an additional top-up grant, you can also be granted inclusion support for actual costs linked to a different category of obstacles.
  • The application is examined on a case-to-case basis and needs to be approved by the Swedish Council for Higher Education.

Pedagogical support 

If you want to apply for actual costs for pedagogical support, you can only do so if the pedagogical support is not already offered for free at the host organisation.
