Erasmus is the European Commission's flagship educational programme for higher education students, teachers, and institutions. It was introduced with the aim of increasing student mobility within Europe and forms part of the EU Lifelong Learning Programme (2007-2013).
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.This website reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.
It encourages student and staff mobility for study and work, and promotes transnational co-operation projects among universities across Europe. The scheme currently involves 9 out of every 10 European higher education establishments and supports co-operation between the universities of 33 countries.
Erasmus students receive a mobility grant in order to assist with the additional costs that occur when studying or working abroad. This grant is in addition to any tuition fee loans and maintenance support that students may already be eligible for. Students can undertake up to two Erasmus mobility periods during their time in higher education and each period must be for a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 12 months in duration.
