How much does it cost?

  • If you go for a year: students on full-year placements pay a significantly reduced tuition fee to York and no tuition fees to the host university.
  • If you go for less than a year: you continue to pay tuition fees at York but pay no tuition fees at the host institution.
  • Help with travel and living expenses: you may be to apply for an Erasmus grant through the University to help with your cost of living whilst abroad. You will still be eligible to apply for Student Finance.
