How exactly does the travel grant work?

1 answers

Do you only receive the money after you have provided evidence, so would you first need the funds in order to pay for the flights and later get reimbursed for them?

Am I eligible for study funding?

0 answers

Dear Sir/ Madam, I am a stonemason of about 15 years experience. After many years of work I find that stone carving is becoming physically too demanding on my body, particularly my hands from using machine and hand tools and I am looking to move my career in a different direction before I suffer permanent damage. During the last few years I have undertook some sculpture restoration in stone and ceramic and it is this area I would like to focus on. To work at the level I would like, I feel it would be of massive benefit for me to study classical sculpture and to improve my draftsmanship, and to this end I have applied to study the two year program at the Academy of Art, Barcelona. I wondered if this is the type of training your organisation funds, and if so, how do I apply? A link to the Art Academy is below, and also a link to my website so you can see my previous work. If this is not the kind of funding you offer can you recommend any other organisations? http://academyofartbarcelona.com/ www.will-whitmore.com Thanks!

Is Salzburg, Austria covered by any German mobile networks? If not, what phone contract is recommended for a Austria/Germany split Erasmus year?

0 answers

I'm spending half of my Erasmus year abroad in Salzburg and the other half in Munich. As I can't seem to find any 6 month contracts over there (I'd rather not have prepaid because I'll be using a lot of data), I'm going to have to get a 12 month contract, so was looking for one that covered both Salzburg and Munich, despite them being in different countries. As Salzburg is right on the German border, I thought maybe it would share German mobile networks, is this true?

It may be a silly question but I was wondering how students in france (paris - sorbonne) take notes? Do they use notebooks or sheets like here in England? Or laptops?

0 answers

I guess I would like some recommendations as I am going to Paris this September and I have no idea what stationery to buy. A notebook per class? Do they receive as much (or more) material than we do here in England at the lectures and seminars?

Can anyone recommend a travel insurance provider after surgery?

0 answers

I'm from the UK and looking for specific study abroad travel insurance. There are quite a few companies that offer it, but it's complicated by the fact that I had double jaw surgery four weeks ago as part of my orthodontic treatment. Many insurers won't cover emergency medical treatment that relates to an 'existing medical condition', which includes recent surgery. Does anyone have experience of buying travel insurance who has a medical condition or has had recent surgery? Were you able to extend your policy to cover it, or did you have to buy additional specific medical insurance?

Are currency cards a good idea to use in Russia ?

0 answers

I'm going on my year abroad in Yaroslavl and Kazan in August and I am wondering about the best way to handle money over there? I've read that Russians use cash more than anything else but if I have to pay charges every time I take cash out, I know it's going to cost me a lot... And I don't really feel comfortable with the idea of having huge amounts of cash with me. So I guess my questions are: are currency cards a good way to handle money and if yes which brand/bank? And if not, then what is the best way to handle money in Russia?

Anyone stayed in Résidence Saint-Jaques before?

0 answers

I'm in the middle of researching places to live during my term in Paris and I've come across Résidence Saint-Jaques in the 14th arrondissement. I can't find an awful lot of information about the place and or many pictures so I was wondering if anyone here has viewed it or stayed there before or knows someone who has? I'd be extremely grateful for any help you can offer! Here's the link in case there are other Saint-Jacques I don't know about: https://logement.clubetudiant.com/properties/residence-saint-jacques/#dossier

How can I apply for French Housing Insurance without a French mobile number?

0 answers

Hi! So I'm slightly panicking right now as I desperately need to sort out my French Home Insurance, otherwise when I arrive they won't hand over the keys and er, I'll be homeless. I've seen a fair few companies that offer this compulsory insurance, but every time I start applying, they want a mobile number. My UK number won't fit in the required field, and I don't have a French mobile number and won't be able to get one until after I've moved there...and got housing insurance. I have a few French friends that could maybe let me use their number, but this feels a bit dodgy to me and will be awkward if the company tries to call me. Any suggestions on how to deal with this would be much appreciated. Thanks!
