Erasmus Policy Statement | Erasmus Charter

ERASMUS (European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is the European Commission’s educational program for Higher Education students, teachers and institutions. It was introduced in 1987 with the aim of increasing student movement within the European Community including the European Economic Area countries, and the Candidate Country of Turkey.

Erasmus+ is the European Union program for education, training, youth, and sport. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020, with organizations invited to apply for funding each year for life-changing activities. For further information about Erasmus+ please visit:

The Erasmus student mobility program offers students the opportunity to undertake a period of study or work (one semester or an academic year) in another European country and for that study/work to be recognized by the student’s home institution as part of their degree with the support of the Commission of the European Communities.

Erasmus+ aims to modernize education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sports organizations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher education, adult education, and the youth sector. Through Erasmus+:

  • Young people can study, volunteer and gain work experience abroad, to develop new skills, gain vital international experience and boost their employability
  • Staff can teach or train abroad, to develop their professional practice, build relationships with international peers, and gain fresh ideas
  • Higher Education Institutions can collaborate with international partners, to drive innovation, share best practice, and offer new opportunities to young people.
