Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility



EU flag Erasmus


Through the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility programme, incoming and outgoing students and staff from select partner universities are able to receive funding for a period of exchange. Universities within the EU can bid for funding via their National Agency. This is a competitive process and the bidding is country specific. The funding is administered by the universities within the EU for all student and staff exchanges. Universities outside of the EU are only able to participate if they have an exchange agreement with a European university.
