Outgoing Students




Changing lives. Opening minds.

“Students who complete an Erasmus+ mobility for studying or training boost their employability skills, with a large majority (72%) saying it had been beneficial or highly beneficial in finding their first job. Their mobilities increased their technical, inter-personal and inter-cultural skills and competences, as well as their self-confidence, ability to achieve goals, and social and cultural openness.”

 Executive Summary, Erasmus+ Higher Education Impacts Study, 2019, European Commission   

What is Erasmus+?

Erasmus is the EU’s flagship programme for education and training, which has been running since 1987.  Erasmus + student mobility enables students to develop their skills and boost their employment prospects through an international study or traineeship period. 


Erasmus - provides opportunities for students to learn abroad in the following ways:

  • Study Exchanges – where a student spends one or two semesters at a partner institution in another European country*.
  • Student Traineeships - where students spend a training period at an enterprise or organisation in one of the eligible European member states or participating countries

erasmus - support funding

Participating students can apply for Erasmus support funding to help with the additional costs of studying/training abroad.  For further information please click here.


Please see the following link for information on the current status of Erasmus mobilities to the UK vis-à-vis BREXIT.  At the current time, study exchanges and internships with the UK are not possible through Erasmus, unless the mobility had already started prior to 31 January 2020.  This also applies to staff mobilities with the UK.  Further updates will be sent out as we receive them.
