Service description:
The EuRopean Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students (ERASMUS) is a European Union (EU) student exchange programme that was established in 1987. It gives students the chance to study, do a work placement, or work as a language assistant in another European country. Placements normally last 3-12 months, and funding is available through EU grants.

Erasmus+ is a relatively new programme that combines all the EU's current schemes for education, training, youth and sport. It’s easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules and streamlined administration.

Erasmus+ is aimed at students in schools, further and higher education institutions, vocational education, adult education, youth and sport organisations actively involved in delivering formal and non-formal education, training, youth work and sporting activities.

To apply for a placement, simply contact the Erasmus co-ordinator at your institution/organisation. Please note: If you have a severe disability or exceptional special needs then you may be entitled to extra funding to cover any associated costs on your placement.
