Financial support / Grants More information on study and placement grants for law students can be found at the website www.rug.nl/law/lep.

An Erasmus+ grant covers part of the travel and accommodation expenses involved in studying abroad. At the moment the Erasmus+ grant has been set at €170,-- to €270,-- per calendar month, depending on the country of your host university. This may change per academic year.

Your application for an exchange period at one of the Faculty’s partner universities also counts as your application for a grant. When you receive notification of a place for study abroad, you will also learn whether or not you have been awarded a Erasmus grant and receive more information on the Erasmus grant.

Courses


Course information can be found in the students report and on the website of the university.

Please be aware that the course list on the website of the university might not always be up to date, since the curriculum for next academic year might not be available yet. Furthermore keep in mind that you can only follow the courses open to exchange students. 

Some of the Law Faculty’s offer a limited range of courses taught in English. The course offer may vary from year to year. Even if law students intend to take only law courses offered in English, they will still have to meet the language requirements. Students who want to apply for an exchange to Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Argentina or Mexico must have completed a language-proficiency course for the language in question or be able to show that they are already following such a course.
