Erasmus+ is the successor of the successful programme Erasmus established in 1987. Erasmus+ is the EU flagship education and training programme for mobility and academic cooperation across Europe and around the world. Since the introduction of the Erasmus+ programme in 2014, more and more student mobility opportunities are in place between EU universities and universities located in the so-called Partner Countries, hence countries outside the EU and beyond Norway, Iceland, Turkey, and FYROM. VUM participates actively in the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility programme (KA107) and its academic community benefits largely from the opportunities for student and staff mobility to VUM partner institutions within the EU, Turkey, and Norway (KA103).
When it comes to student mobility, the Erasmus+ programme has three key benefits and achievements for the students, namely:
- Recognition of the ECTS obtained during the student mobility abroad
- Provision of financial support paid as a monthly grant
- Tuition fee waiver at the receiving institution abroad.
