Erasmus+ is the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. It aims to equip European citizens with the education, skills and creativity that they need in a knowledge-based society.
Erasmus+ provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.
Opportunities to study abroad are available to students at Bachelor’s and Master’s levels, as well as Doctoral candidates.
Students with physical, mental or health-related conditions may apply for additional funding after they have been selected to study abroad.
Your study period abroad can last from a minimum of 3 months (or 1 academic term or trimester) to a maximum of 12 months.
You can benefit from an exchange abroad with Erasmus+ multiple times, either as a student or as a trainee, but your total time abroad (study abroad periods included) may not exceed 12 months within one cycle of study.
Erasmus+ is open to all learners and trainees in all EU Member States, as well as in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, EU candidate countries that have a pre-accession strategy, and other countries in the Western Balkans.
In addition, non-EU neighbouring countries are able to benefit from initiatives aimed at promoting youth activities as well as study and training opportunities abroad.
