Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility

For more than 25 years, the European Union has funded the Erasmus programme, enabling over three million European students to spend part of their studies in another institution elsewhere in Europe. Recognising the importance of the extra-European international dimension, especially in higher education, Erasmus+ now also offers opportunities for individuals to study, work or teach in other parts of the world. It also makes the same opportunities available for students from these areas to come to study in ECHE holding higher education institutions in Europe.

Erasmus+ builds on the experience and success of former EU programmes in higher education (Alfa, Edulink, Erasmus Mundus and Tempus) and supports the international exchange of students, academics, ideas and good practice between institutions.

International Credit Mobility is an activity under Key Action 1 (KA107). An institution in a Partner Country can send its students and/or staff to a partner institution in a Programme Country and vice versa. Students can study abroad and may benefit from an Erasmus+ grant to help with living costs. Staff can perform teaching and/or training abroad, and they may also benefit from an Erasmus+ grant.
