The Erasmus programme provides Erasmus scholarships for foreign study and/or work placement abroad. During your student career, you can only claim one Erasmus scholarship for studying and one Erasmus scholarship for a work placement. The monetary value of the scholarships varies annually but fluctuates around 300 euro. The number of scholarships is limited. Read the procedures carefully before submitting an Erasmus application if you want to apply for a scholarship.
VLIR-UOS travel scholarship
Those who want to travel to a developing country for their work placement or bachelor or master’s degree thesis can apply for a VLIR-UOS travel scholarship. There is a call for candidates every year and you can submit your application and dossier. A limited number of these travel scholarships, worth 1000 euro, are available. A HoGent selection committee awards the scholarships based on several selection criteria. You can find more information about the VLIR-UOS travel scholarships here. If you have concrete plans, it is best to contact the internationalisation department.
It’s not really going abroad but since 2004-2005 you can also complete part of your studies in the French-speaking or German-speaking Community (with a bilateral agreement). This initiative of the Prince Filip Fund wants to stimulate communication and exchange between the various Belgian Communities.
