The money that the Department give you is between 1.200 Euros (Malta) and 2.600 Euros (Australia). There are companys of travel when you can contract the trip. But you can visit the places more important of this countries too. The university usually glides excursions. Five years ago, the number of graps offers to travel were 50.000, but now, the Department of Education only give 25.000, for the econocmic crisic. The only requirements to get the graps is that you have received a grap of this Department the last year and study english as first language.
