The loan scheme is being established in cooperation with the European Investment Fund (Part of the EIB Group) and will be gradually rolled out across the Erasmus+ programme countries over the first few years of the programme.

Who can apply?  

Higher education students who have been accepted for a full Master's study programme in another Erasmus+ Programme Country can apply for a loan to contribute to their costs.

Your destination country must be different from your country of residence, and from that where you obtained your Bachelor's degree.
