Erasmus+ is the EU's new programme for boosting skills and employability through education, training, youth and sport. Between 2014-2020 the programme provided opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience, and volunteer abroad. In the field of education and training, the Erasmus initiative is renowned for the opportunities it provides for students to learn abroad, as well as the opportunities it provides for teaching staff in higher education.
Erasmus+ for Higher Education aims to modernise and improve higher education across Europe and the rest of the world. It gives students and staff opportunities to develop their skills and boost their employment prospects. Participation in student mobility may turn out to be invaluable experience, thus students are encouraged to take up the challenge and seize the opportunity to study abroad that is given to them by the European Union.
