Erasmus+

The EU education programme Erasmus has been promoting the international mobility of students, doctoral candidates, teachers and staff.

The European Union Education Programme

The promotion of Europe-wide cooperation in all areas of education is an important concern of the European Union. The successful EU programme Erasmus+ for Education, Youth and Sport will therefore be continued.  The programme plays a key role on the way to a common European education area.

The academic year 2021/22 marks the start of a new 7-year Erasmus+ programme generation with new, more flexible funding opportunities and priorities. There will be a strong focus on inclusion and equal opportunities, the digital transformation, the promotion of the European Green Deal and the participation of young people in democratic life. Between 2021 and 2027, a total budget of approximately 26 billion euros will be available for this purpose.

Possibilities

Erasmus+ offers mobility and cooperation opportunities in the following areas:

  •     higher education
  •     vocational education and training
  •     School education (including early childhood care, education and care)
  •     adult education
  •     youth work
  •     sport

In the new generation of programmes, 33 countries are participating as so-called programme countries. In addition to the 27 EU member states, these are Iceland, Liechtenstein, Northern Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey. Great Britain, on the other hand, is no longer a programme country after Brexit.

In addition, partnerships and cooperation projects can also be entered into with third countries worldwide.

Key actions in higher education and responsible departments

International mobility of students and university staff is a core element of the internationalisation of the German higher education area. At Bergische Universität, students and doctoral candidates can study with Erasmus+ at partner universities in more than 20 countries in Europe and worldwide or complete an internship or research stay in Europe. Teachers and staff can also gain experience abroad and, for example, gain important experience in the area of international professional qualification through further education and training, a job shadowing or a teaching stay.

The programme lines under key action 1 are centrally supervised and coordinated by the International Center, International Office Department. At the subject level, the Erasmus subject coordinators support interested students in realising their stay abroad and advise them, for example, on the recognition of academic achievements.
