If you are a student, you may have a chance to go on an Erasmus exchange abroad as part of your studies, or complete a traineeship in a company.
When you study on an Erasmus exchange:
Recognition of your study period abroad
Your home university must recognise your period of study abroad as counting towards your degree, provided you complete the study programme agreed in advance of your exchange.
With Erasmus Mundus, you can enrol in a postgraduate degree programme jointly offered by universities based in different EU countries – in certain cases, even outside Europe. You study or conduct research in at least two countries – and are awarded a joint, double or multiple degree as a result. Scholarships for Erasmus Mundus are available for students from Europe and all over the world.
Erasmus Mundus scholarships can also support partnerships with universities from a range of countries and regions across the world.
These scholarships help European students to study in non-EU countries, and non-Europeans to come to EU universities. Find out more about partnerships offering scholarships for nationals of your country.
