On this page you can find a document with the frequently asked questions (FAQ).
Please consult this document before you contact the Exchange Office at WUR.
For thesis it is sometimes possible to do a research at an university which is not a partner. However, this is dependend on the host university. Our office does not mediate or organize anything. You can apply for an Erasmus+ grant for thesis/internship.
If you go on exchange to one of our partner universities, you do not have to pay tuition fees at the partner university. You need to be registered as a full-time student and pay tuition fee at Wageningen University.
However, fees for e.g. visas can be charged and need to be covered by the student. Note: if you go on an exchange to a university which is not a partner of WUR, you probably have to pay tuition fees!
It is possible to do a mobility period (study or training) in your country of origin as an Erasmus+ student, provided that your country of origin is not the country you normally study and live in. As long as you are officially a WUR student, you can go to all Erasmus+ partner countries. So, if you are a Spanish WUR student, you can get an Erasmus+ grant if you go for exchange or thesis/internship to Spain.
However, the selection criteria are defined by the higher education institutions participating in the programme, which could decide that students applying to study in their country of origin should have a lower priority than those applying to a country different from their country of origin.
As you know, Brexit might have effect on the Erasmus+ possibilities with the UK. Your grant might be influenced by the decisions involving Brexit. As a consequence there is a possibility that we are not able to provide you with a grant.
Unfortunately, we cannot give you definitive answers yet, as the deal/ no-deal outcome is not known at this moment. For now, all we can do is refer you to the FAQ on: http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/news/brexit-protecting-learners-ongoing-erasmus-mobility-exchanges_en.
If we receive more information, of course we will keep you updated.
