Studying abroad is a central part of Erasmus+ and has been shown to have a positive effect on later job prospects. It is also an opportunity to improve language skills, gain self-confidence and independence and immerse yourself in a new culture.

Erasmus+ also offers the chance to combine studying abroad with a traineeship.

Opportunities are available for students at short cycle Bachelor, Master or Doctoral levels.
