Erasmus+  is the EU’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. It started on 1 January 2014 and replaces the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), JUGEND IN AKTION as well as the international EU university programmes.

The programme has been supplied with 14.7 billion Euros until the end of its duration. On top of this, another 1.68 billion Euros has been made available from the budgets for EU foreign trade for financing activities with third countries / partner countries ("Heading 4").

The current generation of EU education programmes therefore opens up new perspectives for the years from 2014 to 2020, for shaping mobility and European and international cooperation in education. In order to achieve the Europe 2020 objectives, the Commission has published a new agenda for modernising Europe’s university systems.

ERASMUS+ gives students the opportunity to spend up to 12 months abroad, during any phase of their degree programme (Bachelor, Master, PhD). In addition to study trips, work experience placements of over 2 months are also funded.

This has got you interested and you would like to find out more about how you as a student at the Faculty of Engineering can go abroad with Erasmus+?
