Whether I’m a student looking to enhance my studies within a new culture, or a young worker who wants to train and increase my employability in a unique environment, Erasmus+ gives me access to new skills, knowledge and experience.

All I need to do is choose a country, practice my language skills and prepare for an unforgettable experience.
