Travel Allowance WUR

Wageningen University provides travel costs compensation to students who go on study exchange or do an internship/thesis in one of the programme countries as part of their studies.

When you apply for Erasmus+ for studie exchange or for your internship/thesis which is part of your study programme, you will automatically receive a travel allowance.

The travel compensation is provided together with the first payment (70%) of the Erasmus+ grant. When you handed in all the compulsory documents, you do not have to undertake any other action to receive the travel allowance.


Unfortunately we cannot provide you with travel allowance if you do a voluntary internship (for which you do not receive ECTS) or when you do an internship after graduation.

Zero-grant or waiting list Erasmus+

If you are a zero-grant student or are on the waiting list while you are going on an Erasmus+ exchange or do an internship/thesis for which you receive ECTS in one of the programme countries, you can still receive a travel allowance.

You have to hand in all the compulsorary forms for the Erasmus+ grant application (study & internship/thesis) to receive the travel costs allowance.

You will receive the travel compensation after your return when you handed in the compulsorary document upon return (study & internship/thesis)
