Dear Erasmus+ Outbound 14/15 students,
I am writing to ensure that you are made aware of the shift in the Erasmus+ funding for the current 7 year contract.
This year for the 1st year the University of Warwick has received a significantly lower Erasmus+ contract than bid for, which will result in less grant funds to distribute.
In order to absorb this shortfall and ensure that all University of Warwick Erasmus+ students are able to receive funding, the decision has been taken to reduce the maximum length of duration that we can fund from 10 months to 9 months for all students. Please be aware that all UK Universities will be handling this situation in the manner that best matches their own Erasmus+ cohort for 2014/2015, so other students may/will be paid in a different manner.
By taking this action we can confirm that you will receive your full Erasmus+ entitlement up to the maximum of 9 months.
This does not affect the process by which you will receive the grant and you are responsible for returning all of the relevant forms in a timely manner. To safeguard your Erasmus+ funds please submit your arrival form providing the most accurate start and end of placement dates possible so that we can reserve the Erasmus+ funds held.
We are expecting the funds to reach the University by mid-October however I would recommend that you make financial plans to cover until the end-November in case there are any unforeseen delays with receipt of the funds through the National Agency.
Please make sure that you submit/upload all of the required paperwork as soon as possible to ensure that we can process your grant allocation when the monies are received.
I do hope that this information helps to verify the position with regard to Erasmus+ finance and also helps you to plan for the first few months of your placement.
Wishing you a very successful placement.
With kind regards,
Study Abroad Manager
University of Warwick
