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.

Study abroad with a disability
Students with physical, mental or neuropsychiatric disabilities may receive additional funds for the extra expenses incurred in connection with their Erasmus exchange.
Please indicate this in the grant application in MoveON and the Division of Internationalisation will contact you.
The grant application and other mandatory documentation are submitted electronically through the system MoveON.
The visit cannot take place if prohibited/advised against by the Swedish government, the vice-chancellor of Uppsala University, or the Division for Internationalisation at Uppsala University. You have to follow the development, both via UU:s web and the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. You must look into your insurance coverage; the insurance provided by UU:s Student OUT is only valid in the host country of the exchange studies.

The instructions for International Credit Mobility are described in a handbook. It contains the information needed to complete application as well as other mandatory tasks to complete during and after your exchange.
