Going on exchange is a once in a lifetime experience, but there are likely additional costs involved. Your financial situation does not have to deter you from pursuing an exchange programme, and we can help you make an affordable choice as needed.

When you participate in an exchange programme, you are required to pay the UCU tuition fees, but no tuition fees are payable to the host institution. During your exchange semester, you will not need to pay the UCU campus fees as you will not be living on campus. You can put those funds towards housing at the partner institution. Depending on your exchange destination, additional costs will vary. Of course this also depends on your personal choices and lifestyle. If you stay within the European Union/European Economic Area, you may be eligible for an Erasmus grant to help finance your exchange. 

To provide you with insight into the costs at a partner university, please look at our exchange partner pages. Click on any partner institution to see estimates of the costs of living there. You can probably also find more information on each partner university's website. To help you prepare a personal estimate of the costs of studying abroad, you may use the financial plan template on our website.
