European Commission ERASMUS+ / SOCRATES


What is ERASMUS+?

 The Erasmus Program is an EU exchange student program that has been in existence since the late 1980’s. Its purpose is to provide foreign exchange options for students from within the European Union and it involves many of the best universities and seats of learning on the continent.

What does ERASMUS+ do?

 The aim of ERASMUS+ is to achieve the EU Youth Strategy objectives:

  1. Reducing unemployment, especially among young people
  2. Promoting adult learning, especially for new skills and skills required by the labour market.
  3. Encouraging young people to take part in European democracy
  4. Supporting innovation, cooperation and reform
  5. Reducing early school leaving
  6. Promoting cooperation and mobility with the EU's partner countries

Why is the ERASMUS+ important for students?

For nearly 30 years, the EU has funded the Erasmus programme, which has enabled over three million European students to spend part of their studies at another higher education institution or with an organisation in Europe.

Studying abroad is a central part of ERASMUS+ and has been shown to have a positive effect on later job prospects. It is also a chance to improve language skills, gain self-confidence and independence and immerse yourself in a new culture.

ERASMUS+ brings such opportunities to all - students, staff, trainees, teachers, volunteers and more. It's not just about Europe or Europeans either - with ERASMUS+, people from all over the world can access opportunities.
