ERASMUS+ is the EU's combined education, training youth and sport programme enabling 2 000 000 higher education students to study and train abroad during the course of the programme. The programme aims to increase the skills and employability of students, thereby contributing to the competitiveness of the European economy.
Students may participate in study mobility which enables students at higher education institutions to spend an integrated period of study of between 3 months and 12 months in another participating country. Erasmus+ study mobility enables students to benefit educationally, linguistically and culturally from the experience of learning in other European countries or Erasmus+ partner countries, to promote co-operation between institutions and to enrich the educational environment of the host institution, to contribute to the development of a pool of well-qualified, open-minded and internationally experienced young people as future professionals.
Students of higher education institutions may participate in traineeships that enable students to spend a period between 2 months and 12 months in an enterprise or organisation in another Erasmus+ programme or partner country. The aim of the Erasmus+ traineeships is to provide more and better opportunities to increase skills and competences of HE students and to attract the best talents from abroad.
The combined period of studies and traineeship may not exceed 12 months during one study cycle. Students must apply for Erasmus+ grants through their higher education institution. Individual applicants are not eligible.
