Additional support

The UK National Agency provides grant payments to UK organisations and institutions, which are responsible for arranging the mobility activities and for selecting and supporting the participants who then take part in these activities.

If you have a severe disability or exceptional special needs then you may be entitled to extra funding to cover associated costs on your Erasmus+ placement. Please contact your institution/organisation’s Erasmus+ co-ordinator for further details as they are responsible for ensuring all the necessary paperwork is completed and arrangements are made at the host institution/organisation to meet the needs of the participant.

Higher education students who need to apply for a special needs allowance should do so via their home institution, before the start of the academic year in which the mobility activity is scheduled to take place.

As well as talking to your sending organisation about any concerns or questions you have on taking part and what support they provide, you may find some helpful information from these organisations:
