During Erasmus studies, a student has the opportunity to:

  • Improve foreign language skills.
  • Get acquainted with the nuances of their chosen field of study in a foreign country.
  • Experience a different culture.
  • Boost self-confidence.
  • Establish new contacts.

Exams taken abroad are recognized by KSU.

Erasmus scholarships for studies are available to regular and extended studies students. The duration of studies abroad is 3-12 months.

Important! A student can receive Erasmus+ program funding for up to 12 months, which can be used for studies, internships during studies, and post-graduation internships (graduate internships).

How to choose a university?

You should choose a university from the list of universities with which KSU has agreements for student exchanges. You can find the list of universities here.

When choosing a university, pay attention to whether:

  • The university where you want to study offers courses that match your field of study at KSU.
  • You are proficient in the foreign language in which subjects will be taught at the foreign higher education institution.

Financial Conditions

For students who successfully pass the selection process, an Erasmus scholarship is provided, the amount of which depends on the country where the studies will take place.

Country Groups Monthly Scholarship
Group I: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Finland, France, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden. 674 EUR
Group II: Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Malta, Portugal, Slovak, Slovenia, Spain. 674 EUR
Group III: Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Turkey. 606 EUR

The Erasmus scholarship is allocated to cover additional mobility expenses, such as travel and insurance costs, language training if needed, and to compensate for higher living costs in foreign countries. The scholarship does not cover all study abroad expenses.

It is possible to study abroad with a “zero scholarship.” In this case, the Erasmus scholarship will not be paid, but you will still have access to all Erasmus student rights (free study at Erasmus partner institutions, use of the Erasmus language assessment and learning system, etc.).

Note: Students from socially disadvantaged groups or those raising minor child(ren) may receive an additional €250 per month scholarship (not applicable in cases of special needs).

Students who choose to travel in an environmentally friendly way can receive an additional €50. An eco-friendly journey is considered when the majority of the trip is made using sustainable transportation methods (e.g., taking the bus, train, or carpooling with friends).

Students with special needs can receive additional support for studying abroad. According to the Erasmus+ program guide, a person with special needs is defined as a potential program participant whose physical, mental, or other health-related condition is such that their participation in mobility activities is impossible without additional funding. Applications for this support should be submitted to the Education Exchanges Support Foundation. More information can be found on the Foundation’s website www.erasmus-plius.lt.
