Unfortunately we cannot award Erasmus scholarships to all of the many deserving applications we receive. Please explore the general list of funding opportunities on the University of Glasgow scholarship database in case you are eligible. You should also consider national funding programmes.
Erasmus+ Master Loans
The first Erasmus+ Master Loans are available in Spain, France, UK, Turkey and Luxembourg.
The agreement in Spain will provide financial support for students from Spain taking their Masters degree in one of the 33 Erasmus+ Programme countries or for students from these countries moving to Spain to study for their Masters. Students can apply for the loans directly with Microbank (the social branch of La Caixa) in Spain.
The agreement in France will provide financial support for students from France taking their Masters degree in one of the 33 Erasmus+ Programme countries or for students from these countries moving to France to study for their Masters. Students can apply for the loans directly with BPCE in France.
The agreement in the UK will help Masters students with their living and tuition costs when studying in a country other than where they live or where they took their first degree. The terms of the loan include:
- no need to provide collateral when applying for the loan
- an interest rate lower than the market rate
- a grace period of up to one year before repayments begin
- a further payment holiday of up to one year
The scheme is managed by the European Investment Fund (EIF) which publishes details of participating banks, student loan agencies, and other organisations. More information on the management of the Master Loan is on the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Master Degree Loan webpage.
We will continue to provide updates on this web page when more information becomes available. Please see the Erasmus + website for further information.
