Erasmus+ is the best-known scholarship programme enabling the international mobility of students as well as academic and administrative staff. While the traditional Erasmus programme enabled mobility within the so called programme countries (EU member states, Iceland, Norway, Lichtenstein, Macedonia and Turkey), from 2015/20106 the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) gives opportunity to partner countries as well from all around the globe.
The main types of scholarship for students are:
- study exchange: students can spend one or two semesters in a foreign higher education institution without paying tuition fees or going through the application procedures designed for full degree students, besides the credits earned at the foreign institution are recognised at their home institution.
- student placement (internship): students can get scholarship to conduct internship at a chosen company, institution, organisation or embassy with a period of 3 to 12 months.
Interested students can find more information under the Education > Exchange menu.
Academic and administrative staff have the possibility to conduct:
- teaching mobility: teaching activity carried out in a foreign higher education institution, with a minimum of 8 teaching hours during 3-5 days in general.
- training mobility: both academic and administrative staff have the possibility to conduct training mobility that can include job shadowing or networking activities, participation at training programmes, workshops or international weeks designed exclusively for Erasmus+ mobility.
Interested staff members can find more information under the International > Visiting professors and staff > Erasmus+ staff mobility menu.
