Erasmus+ grants are available for students and lecturers who take part in exchange programmes at one of the partner schools of Zuyd University. General information about these grants and application forms are available at the Zuyd International Office of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences.
Students of IB who intend to continue their studies abroad after graduation at our business school (e.g. at a Master’s programme) can apply for a VSB grant. You will have to show evidence of your eligibility to be enrolled in a study programme and you will be subjected to a selection procedure. The selection committee will assess whether your plan meets the requirements of the VSB organisation. The number of grants is limited. Detailed information is available at the central international office of Zuyd University. Also check out their website.
