Erasmus+ is a European grant programme that gives students the opportunity to study and conduct traineeships in Europe, as well as some selected countries outside of Europe, with a grant from Erasmus. Erasmus+ is well known and a good merit with employers both in Sweden and abroad.
What is Erasmus+?
Since 1992, Sweden has been a part of the Erasmus programme. A lot has happened since then and the programme has grown to include for example exchange studies, traineeships and mobility for teachers and staff.
Erasmus+ is financed through the European commission. If you want to know more about the Erasmus programme, visit the European commission’s website.
To be a part of the Erasmus+ programme, a university has to have an Erasmus charter. The charter describes what commitments the university has towards the grant holder and vice versa.
