It depends on your host university / internship organisation if this is possible. For Erasmus+ scholarships it is a possibility. Take a look at the link below to find out all information on Blended and Virtual Mobility.

Conditions for Study Abroad

Pre-Departure, Scholarships information
Each year Fontys organises a Pre-Departure Event for students that go abroad next semester. Unfortunately, due to the current measures we did not organise this. However, the information that would have been shared, has been sent by email. Did you miss it? You can find the presentation on Scholarships (incl. Erasmus+) in the link below.
Fontys Erasmus+ scholarship calculation tool
You can use this tool to get an idea how high the scholarship will be. The amount of the Erasmus+ Scholarship is based on months plus remaining days and will be calculated accordingly. Taking into account that a month always exists of 30 days regardless of which month it is. Please use the tool below to calculate the Erasmus+ scholarship for which you could apply. No rights can be derived from this tool.
Going Abroad with extra support
Erasmus+ stimulates the participation of everyone and promotes an intercultural learning experience for all students.
Additional funding is therefore available for students that want to go abroad and that due to a disability need extra support. For example; special housing, medical support, supportive equipment, mentoring or adjusted study materials.
Don't hesitate to contact your Coordinator Internationalisation or email@example.com to request further information and support on how to apply for this extra funding.
Erasmus+ and Brexit
Even though the UK left the EU on January 31st, 2020. The United Kingdom is temporarily still an eligible country for Erasmus+ Scholarships. Fontys applied for funding in 2020 and therefore study/internship semesters that start in spring or fall semester 2021 and spring 2022 are still possible under the Erasmus+ Programme.
Students have to check themselves the regulation regarding duration of stay and possible need for visa!
