Pre-Arrival: Applications and Accommodation

All Erasmus student nominations must now be submitted via an on-line form. Your home university may do this for you, or they may ask you to do it yourself, in which case they will give you a username and password.

The deadlines for applying are usually in MID-JUNE (for Autumn semester arrivals) and LATE OCTOBER (for Spring semester arrivals).


The International Exchanges Unit send your form to Registration Services and to Accommodation Services who will then send you the information you require. Until you receive this, you cannot apply for accommodation because you need a registration number to do this. When you do receive this you can send in your form either on line or by mail. The last date to apply is usually around 11 August SO YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE CONFIRMATION UNTIL AFTER THIS DATE. Sometimes you will hear nothing from accommodation services until late July, so if there will be no-one at your home address to receive mail during this time, you should let us know where we can contact you. Erasmus students are usually given a place in a Hall of Residence if at all possible, but if you wish to find your own accommodation, you must do so on arrival.
