What can I do with Erasmus? 


Erasmus gives you the opportunity to study at a partner university for a full-academic year.

  • Spend between three months to twelve months in a university or enterprise in one of the 27 EU Member States
  • Students are eligible for a free language course of their choice with Linguae Mundi
  • Erasmus study is accredited by the University
  • Students who go away for a full academic year are exempt from paying their tuition fees.


Erasmus gives you the opportunity to complete a work placement for a full-academic year.

  • The minimum allowed period for a placement is two months, or one academic term, and the maximum is 12 months

Study & Work

Combine the two programmes, allowing you to study for one semester and working for the other.

  • Get double the involvement by combining the programmes and experience both working and studying in a foreign country 

Who can take part? 

All students who have successfully completed 2 years at Coventry University can go on a year-abroad placement.

Why should I apply? 

What we say

All 3 routes - Study, Work or Study & Work - on the Erasmus programme share the same benefits and will give you the opportunity to: 

  • Learn a new language whilst abroad and receive free language courses prior to departure
  • Experience a new university culture including new teaching techniques and flexibility within modules
  • Improve your CV
  • Become a globally-aware graduate
  • Develop personally and professionally
  • Make new friends
  • Get paid to go abroad

What our students say


Without a doubt we would recommend to anyone to do an internship abroad as it gives you the chance to gain professional experience, learn about different culture, become independent and responsible and figure out what you enjoy doing in life.
