  • This funding organisation gives MSc IM/CEMS and third year BSc students the opportunity to go abroad for study exchange or an internship. You can receive an Erasmus+ grant only for one study exchange and one internship during your entire studies.

    RSM Career Services will nominate MSc IM/CEMS and third year BSc students according to their internship proposals. Their nominations are sent to the EUR International Office, responsible for the administration of the Erasmus+ grant programme. You cannot apply for this grant on your own behalf. The EUR International Office will tell eligible students how to proceed with an application for the Erasmus+ grant.
