What is Erasmus+?

Wageningen University and Research participates in the exchange program of the European Union, called Erasmus+. On this page you can find some information about this program.

Wageningen University participates in the exchange program of the European Union (Erasmus+). Based on this program you can visit a large number of universities in the programme countries. Next to this, you can apply for a grant for both study exchange as well as for doing an (compusory or voluntary) internship/thesis in the programme countries (both during your studies ├índ after graduation).

Once you are back in Wageningen after an Erasmus+ exchange the student administration will integrate the grades you obtained abroad in the Dutch system. Because within the European Union a standard grade conversion system was agreed upon, this is an easy procedure.

Wageningen University also has exchange agreements with non-EU universities, but exchange to these countries is not part of the Erasmus+ programme (and no grant or travel allowance is provided by through the study abroad office). Other options for studying abroad can be found here.
