ERASMUS offers university-level students the chance to go to another European country to study and do work placements (traineeships). Periods abroad should contribute to qualifications at home and help students get to know different cultures and languages as well as gain vital experience.

More than 2.5 million students have experienced what it means to do an ERASMUS term in one of more than 4 000 higher education institutions in 33 participating countries. These include all the EU Member States as well as Croatia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey.

Periods abroad – both for studies and for placements – can last from three to 12 months each, for a combined total of 24 months.

ERASMUS student mobility is open to all students studying in a participating country and enrolled in at least the second year in their home institution. Meanwhile, you can take a placement from your first year.

To participate in ERASMUS student mobility, you should first contact the international office of the institution where you study at home. The office will be able to tell you about possible host institutions and host enterprises, the selection procedure and financial support.

Students taking part in the programme may be eligible for grants to cover part of the additional costs for living abroad and travelling. In all circumstances, tuition fees at the host university are waived.

In addition, students with special needs, such as physical disabilities, may get extra funds to help them cover additional expenses related to their stay abroad.
