Am I eligible to apply?

Students to the University of Groningen

You are eligible to apply for an ICM scholarship if:

  • you are registered as a full-time student in one of the partner universities and will have finished the first year of your study programme by the time you start your exchange.
  • your subject area is available at your chosen host university and an agreement between the two institutions exists.
  • you are nominated by your home university. You need a nomination letter from your International Office to be able to apply.
  • you meet the language requirements. Usually the international acknowledged tests as TOEFL and IELTS are accepted and institutional tests are not. Check the required test score here: admissions requirements for exchange at the University of Groningen. Note that some partners have made special arrangements regarding the language requirements. Make sure to follow the instructions from your own International Office and the exchange office at the University of Groningen faculty.

In all cases, contact your International Office before you start your application. Your International Office has detailed information on the levels of exchange and subject areas for which an application can be submitted. The availability of scholarships per level varies per participating country and university.

Please be aware that you can only apply to participate in an exchange at the University of Groningen and not to any of the other partners mentioned on the website.


Students from the University of Groningen

University of Groningen students wishing to participate in an outbound exchange should contact their faculty exchange office first. Also check carefully which scholarships are available.


Make sure to add the right language test to your application, following the instructions from your faculty or the partner. 

After you have submitted the application, your nomination letter will be made by the Erasmus+ institutional coordinator. During the application process you can upload a confirmation letter/email from your faculty (exchange office) in which they agree with your Erasmus+ ICM application. The Mobility & Scholarship Desk will add your official nomination letter to your application after the application deadline closed.
