The Erasmus+ programme offers the possibility of spending a study period abroad to students who completed a minimum of two semesters of studies. Erasmus+ also allows students to undertake a traineeship in a company, enterprise, or another relevant workplace at any time during their studies. Erasmus exchange students are exempt from paying tuition fees for their studies and traineeships, and there are some grants available to help with living costs. For more detailed information about these opportunities, please visit this page.
The programme also provides staff at institutions that hold the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education with the opportunity to teach or train at another partner institution or organisation in Europe. Staff can also take part in job shadowing or training events in a relevant organisation abroad. Mobility can last from two days to two months. Please visit the following page for more information.
The Erasmus+ programme provides additional opportunities to students interested in studying a full master’s programme abroad through scholarships for Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM). These programmes are prestigious, integrated, international study programmes, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions. More information about the EMJM programmes can be found here.
