Erasmus+ is the EU's program to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Erasmus+ has opportunities for a wide range of organisations, including universities, education and training providers, think-tanks, research organisations, and private businesses.
This means that the University is able to participate in European program (with approval of grant) , send students and staff members to, and receive students and staff from higher education institutions across Europe on study, training, teaching or work shadowing visits (provided that the institution is also in receipt of the Erasmus University Charter).
The overall objective of Erasmus+ is to create a partnership in research and education that will strengthen the ties between Europe and Asia, with a special focus on education, training, youth and sport.
Teaching periods: this activity allows teaching staff or staff from enterprises to teach at a partner university abroad. Staff mobility for teaching can be in any subject area/academic discipline.
Training periods: this activity supports the professional development of university teaching and non-teaching staff as well as the development of involved institutions. It may take the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences) and job shadowing/observation periods/training at a partner university, or at another relevant organization abroad.
Student mobility can be in any subject area/academic discipline. To ensure high-quality mobility activities with maximum impact on the students, the mobility activity has to be compatible with the student’s degree-related learning and personal development needs. Students may carry out activities described below:
- A study period abroad at a partner University.
The study period abroad must be part of the student's study program to complete a degree at a short cycle, first cycle (Bachelor or equivalent), second cycle (Master or equivalent) and third or doctoral cycle.
