Erasmus+ in Higher Education

For nearly 30 years, the EU has funded the Erasmus programme, which has enabled over three million European students to spend part of their studies at another higher education institution or with an organisation in Europe.

Erasmus+ brings such opportunities to all - students, staff, trainees, teachers, volunteers and more. It's not just about Europe or Europeans either - with Erasmus+, people from all over the world can access opportunities.



Studying abroad is a central part of Erasmus+ and has been shown to have a positive effect on later job prospects. It is also an opportunity to improve language skills, gain self-confidence and independence and immerse yourself in a new culture. Read more about the benefits of an exchange abroad.

Opportunities are available for students at Bachelor, Master or Doctoral levels.



Erasmus+ supports teaching and periods at higher education institutions abroad. If you work in higher education, you can spend time teaching or training at an institution in an Erasmus+ Programme or Partner country.
