Erasmus+ [EN]

erasmus WAiK

Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. It helps organise student and doctoral candidate exchanges within Erasmus+ Programme countries and to and from partner countries.

By studying abroad with Erasmus+, students can improve their communication, language and inter-cultural skills and gain soft skills highly valued by future employers.

Opportunities to study abroad are available to students at short cycle Bachelor and Master levels and Doctoral candidates.The study period abroad can last a minimum of 2 months (or 1 academic term or trimester) and a maximum of 12 months. You can benefit of an exchange abroad with Erasmus+ multiple times, either as a student or as a trainee, but your total time abroad (study abroad periods included) may not exceed 12 months within one cycle of study (BA, MA, PhD).

Erasmus+ supports traineeships (work placements, internships) abroad at any workplace for students currently enrolled in higher education institutions in Programme Countries at short-cycle Bachelor and Master level as well as for doctoral candidates. These opportunities are also open to recent graduates. By doing a traineeship abroad, students and graduates can improve their knowledge, skills and competences that employers are looking for.

Erasmus+ traineeships are open to any student enrolled in a higher education institution holding an Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education. The traineeship must be relevant for the degree-related learning and personal development needs and, wherever possible, be integrated in the study programme. A traineeship can take place at any organisation located anywhere in the world (with the exception of EU institutions, bodies and agencies).
