Erasmus+ is the European Union’s (EU) funding programme for education and training, youth and sport between 2014 and 2020. The University of Oxford has successfully been awarded an Erasmus charter to take part in the programme.
The Erasmus programme
The Erasmus+ Programme builds on the achievements of more than 25 years of European programmes in the fields of education, training and youth.
It encourages student and staff mobility for study and work, and promotes trans-national co-operation projects among universities across Europe. The scheme currently involves nine out of every ten European higher education establishments and supports co-operation between the universities of 33 countries.
Erasmus has developed beyond an educational programme - it has acquired the status of a social and cultural phenomenon. It gives many European university students their first chance to live and thrive abroad. Around 3 million students have benefited from Erasmus since its introduction in 1987.
