Erasmus + supplementary grant for disability or illness

University students who wish to participate in Erasmus+ exchange studies or traineeships may apply for a disability or illness grant to meet the additional costs.

Examples of costs covered by the grant:

  • Assistant’s salary
  • Assistant’s travel expenses
  • Special housing to meet the needs of the student
  • Additional travel expenses
  • Shipping costs for equipment

The student must submit an application form, cost estimation and a certificate attesting to the student’s disability or illness to the International Office.

The International Office subsequently places a formal request for the grant to the National Agency of the Erasmus+ Program on behalf of the student.

The student should make a thorough inquiry about facilities and services for students with disabilities at the host institution. Furthermore, the student shall inform the host institution of his/her disability or illness as soon as possible so as to ensure the best possible services from the start of his/her studies.

Useful information about access and services to university students with disabilities can be found at the following sites:
