The ERASMUS Program is a education program created in 1987 by the European Union, with the main goal of cooperation between European universities, and the exchange of students, department and administrative staff within the European Member countries and other participating countries.
To date, more than 2 million students and nearly 200,000 teachers have utilized this program to go abroad. Since 2007, ERASMUS has been continued within the EU’s new education program, the Life Long Learning Program (LLP).
The following are eligible for mobility through the LLP-ERASMUS Program:
- Study Abroad for Students (SMS)
- Internships for Students (SMP)
- Visiting lecturer (STA)
- Mobility of Staff (STT)
- Intensive Programs (IP)
- Preparatory Visits (PV)
Students from non-EU countries can participate in the ERASMUS program, provided they are enrolled at a university in a EU member state and regularly attend all their studies there. Teachers and other employees must be employed at a university in a EU member state to participate in the program.
Dedicated ERASMUS funding
Persons with disabilities may receive a grant for additional costs. This applies to all lines of ERASMUS mobility (studies, work experience, mobility and mobility for teaching purposes in regards to education and training purposes, as well as in connection with travel and intensive preparatory programs).
