What is Erasmus+? An excuse to party in a foreign country? Nope, Erasmus stands for European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of Students. It’s a Higher Education exchange programme for students, teachers and institutions. Over two million students have done Erasmus since it first started in 1987. That’s a lot of mingling. Of course it isn’t all about socialising; Erasmus gives students the chance to study, do a work placement or work as a language assistant in another European country.
Erasmus+ aims to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher education, adult education and the youth sector. It offers exciting opportunities for UK participants to then study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad in Europe.
