What is Erasmus+?

The Erasmus+ programme is the most successful exchange programme in Europe. Students and professionals can receive financial support during their stays abroad.

Who can participate in Erasmus+ mobility?

The programme can be taken advantage of by professors as well as administrative staff of University of Applied Sciences Europe. Both freelance workers and the permanently employed are welcome.

Where can I go?

Employees can attend their stays abroad at one of our partner institutions, other Erasmus+ institutions or regular european institutions.

How long should my stay be?
