What happens next?

Offer Letter

You will be notified of the outcome of your funding application in due course and successful students will receive an award offer letter.  The offer letter needs to be signed and returned by the stated deadline in order to confirm your funding.

If you have applied for funding speculatively then this funding award will be conditional, subject to you securing a traineeship which meets the eligibility criteria.  You should inform the Erasmus Team if any details of your traineeship change e.g. duration, host organisation. 

Pre-Departure Meeting

All students holding a funding award must attend a mandatory Pre-Departure Briefing.  These are held in April and December and you will be notified which Briefing you are expected to attend, depending on when your traineeship takes place.

Erasmus+ Paperwork

All paperwork related to your traineeship will be issued to you by the Erasmus Team in advance of your start date, with full instructions given for completion.
