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. Itโ€™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.
