RCSI students can be funded under the Erasmus Programme to undertake a 2-month research project in one of the Erasmus Programme Countries*. On average, 5 Erasmus grants are available each year.

Research placements eligible for an Erasmus grant are either advertised by the RCSI Erasmus Office, or can be directly organised by the students. In both cases, students should apply by the 31st of January for placements to be carried out between June and September of the same year. Details of the application procedure can be obtained by contacting the RCSI Erasmus Office:

Erasmus grants consist of a travel contribution based on the distance travelled and a monthly contribution to the students’ expenses abroad. Online language courses can be provided to students undertaking a placement in a laboratory where the language of work is not in English (or their mother tongue).
