Erasmus +

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.

Erasmus+ helps organise student and doctoral candidate exchanges within Erasmus+ Programme countries and to and from Partner countries.

You can also combine your period spent studying abroad in a Programme country with a traineeship to gain work experience.

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.
