Erasmus: The How To Guide
What is Erasmus?
The European Region Action Scheme for the of Mobility of University Students is an exchange programme for EU students which was created in 1987. It allows students to spend one or two semesters abroad in an EU university of their choice. The student is given a grant from the programme depending on the country that they’re studying in and the length of time that they’re studying for.
What is the purpose of Erasmus?
Roughly 3 million students have taken part in the Erasmus programme. The purpose of it is to broaden student’s horizons by allowing them to live in a different country and experience life there. With approximately 4,000 institutions taking part in the programme, the possibility of immersing yourself in a new culture and opening doors to new opportunities has never been stronger.
