    Hello,

    I was on a work placement outside of the EU (not Erasmus) for my sandwich year for 8 months (July 2015 - March 2016) for the academic year 2015/16 - for this I received around £2400 in student finance. Then in April 2016 I went on an Erasmus work placement instead, I receive the 400eur monthly grant and SFE gave me an extra £5600, bringing my total SFE for the year to around £8000.

    My question is, what is the minimum duration for an Erasmus work placement to quality for Student Finance? I read it could be 24 weeks, but if anyone has any experience please share!

    Thank you
