Available opportunities for higher education students
The Erasmus+ programme offers a wide range of opportunities for students to study and train abroad.
The programme funds intra-EU and international credit mobility for students to study in a receiving institution for a period of 3-12 months and obtain credits which are then recognized by the sending institution. Students can also do a traineeship abroad for a period of 2 to 12 months.
Erasmus+ provides additional opportunities regarding full Master’s programme abroad through scholarships for Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees.
Doctoral candidates who want to follow part of their doctoral studies abroad may also receive support through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions under the Horizon 2020 programme.
I am Lirim Mehmetaj, a student from Kosovo at the University of Prishtina. Last winter semester, and currently this summer semester, I am studying at the University of Salzburg. By coming and being part of a new living and studying environment it was pretty interesting, but also challenging and very demanding. Referring to life in Salzburg, you can easily find yourself traveling into times because Salzburg indeed is a very old city filled with culture. Small and narrow alleys, paved with stones at the old part of the town, are impressive. Moreover, University is filled with students of different countries from all around the world, therefore every new acquaintance, except a new friendship is also a lesson which makes you know and understand better the diversity and multiculturalism. Erasmus is a great opportunity for Kosovar students to study and travel abroad. It is awesome that this kind of program gave me the chance to meet the world and meet new experiences, because I as a Kosovar citizen, cannot always travel freely. It is great that the EU made it possible for me to study with Erasmus. The program helps you not in just fulfilling your dreams, but also, living beyond them. Therefore, it is an extraordinary experience which changes your life forever.
