Erasmus+ for higher education supports both 1) international mobility for individuals and 2) higher education cooperation and development projects.
Mobility for individuals includes
- international mobility for students and interns
- international mobility for teachers and staff of higher education institutions
- funding for organizing exchanges
- additional funding for persons with special needs and students with a family
During the programme, the participants learn or teach their field abroad, improve their language skills, create networks and acquire other international skills by getting to know another country’s culture. These will be of great benefit in both working life and in the ever internationalising society.
Development and cooperation projects
International development and cooperation projects improve the quality and labour market relevance of higher education.
