What opportunities are available for higher education students and staff?

The Erasmus+ programme offers a wide range of opportunities for students and staff 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 recognised 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 A number of Erasmus Mundus Action 2 partnerships offer scholarships until 2017 to students and staff. More information can be obtained here:

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.

The Erasmus+ programme also funds staff mobility, allowing university staff to teach and be trained abroad. The minimum duration is 2 days when the mobility is between Programme Countries and 5 days when it is between Programme and Partner Countries. In both cases, the maximum duration is 60 days.
