What is Erasmus+?
Erasmus+ is the EU's new programme for boosting skills and employability through education, training, youth, and sport.
Between 2014-2020 the programme will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience, and volunteer abroad.
What does it involve?
In the field of education and training, the Erasmus initiative is renowned for the opportunities it provides students to learn abroad, as well as the opportunities it provides for teaching staff in higher education.
Building on these, the Erasmus+ programme now covers five major areas of education and training:
School education opportunities for staff and institutions;
Vocational education and training opportunities for students, apprentices, trainees, staff, institutions, and business;
Higher Education opportunities for students, staff, institutions, and businesses;
Adult Education opportunities for staff, institutions, and businesses;
European Integration opportunities for academic and research staff and institutions.
