How to Apply

1) Liaise with Course Leader
If you have decided to partake in the Erasmus study programme, the first step should be a discussion with your course leader. You will need to inform them of your decision.

2) Research Course Options
You must research the partner college options available to you. See LIT's partner colleges here.

If you are interested in studying at a college in the EU that we are currently not a partner with, please contact at least one year in advance of when you would like to go on exchange. It is not always possible to arrange partnerships, and the process of researching suitability with your lecturers and with the potential college can take a long time.

3) Applying for Erasmus
Once you have decided where you would like to study you must make your application to formally hold a place at your chosen college. Applications are currently first-come-first served.

Please contact to seek access to our online application form.

You will be asked if you have researched your options. Ensure that you have researched what you can study at your chosen college, and that you have researched the cost of living in the country you wish to go to.

Applications must be submitted before 5PM Irish Time on the following deadlines. Applications received after this time and date will not be facilitated, zero exceptions.

4) Nomination
Your nomination will then be sent to your chosen college. After this point the majority of your dealings will be with your receiving college (e.g. registration, accommodation, timetabling etc.)

5) Insurance
All students partaking in Erasmus must ensure they have an E111 card and valid travel insurance see here.
