Erasmus+ program is the European Union’s program 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. It helps to organize student exchanges within Erasmus+ Programme countries and to and from Partner countries.
Your study period abroad can last from a minimum of 3 months (or 1 academic term or trimester) to a maximum of 12 months. If you are granted a scholarship through the Erasmus program, you must contact the local international office at your institution in the application period to receive information about the documents you have to submit. Generally, you will need your CV, a motivation letter, and a signed Learning Agreement where you have to state the courses you are planning to take at the host university.
To study abroad with Erasmus+, you must be registered in a higher education institution and you need to be at least in the second year of your studies.
Your home institution and the receiving institution must have an inter-institutional agreement between them for you to study there with Erasmus+.
You can also combine your studies abroad with a traineeship to gain work experience while studying.
