NEW! Specific call for proposals EAC/S06/13 - Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-20
The ERASMUS University Charter (EUC) provides the general framework for all the European cooperation activities, which a higher education institution may carry out within the ERASMUS programme. Awarded by the European Commission following a call for proposals, the Charter sets out the fundamental principles and the minimum requirements with which the higher education institution must comply when implementing its ERASMUS activities.
It's a prerequisite for higher education institutions to organise student mobility and teaching and other staff mobility, to carry out ERASMUS intensive language courses and intensive programmes, and to apply for multilateral projects, networks, accompanying measures and preparatory visits.
In addition, EUC holders may apply for the ECTS/DS label through a specific call for proposals.
Higher education institutions can apply for three different types of charters:
1. The Standard ERASMUS University Charter [68 KB] is for institutions which wish to apply for ERASMUS funding for transnational student mobility for studies, for transnational mobility activities for teachers and other staff and/or to apply for ERASMUS intensive language courses, ERASMUS intensive programmes, multilateral projects, networks, accompanying measures or preparatory visits.
2. The Extended ERASMUS University Charter (Student Placements only) [67 KB] is for institutions which wish to apply only for ERASMUS funding for transnational student mobility for placements.
3. The Extended ERASMUS University Charter (Standard Charter and Student Placements) [70 KB] is for institutions which wish to apply for activities covered by both the Standard and the Extended University Charter (Student Placements only).
When awarding the ERASMUS University Charter, the European Commission informs the recipient institution as to whether its Charter refers to study activities or placements or both.
Institutions and national authorities shall notify the European Commission without delay of any change in the situation or status of the institution which might necessitate changes to or withdrawal of the Charter.
