Become a Part of the ‘ERASMUS Generation’
ERASMUS – the EuRopean Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students – is a project for the enhancement of academic exchange within the European Union (EU). With an exclusive focus on higher education, ERASMUS is only one pillar within the wider framework of the EU Life-long Learning Program (LLP) that targets various aspects of child and adult education.
The ERASMUS initiative has created a network of university partnerships that enabled thousands of students to enrich their academic and personal experience during a study abroad. The program is currently available to the following countries: participating countries. By now, the ‘ERASMUS generation’ stands for intercultural and intellectual exchange in practice.
It is less widely known that ERASMUS also fosters exchange of university faculty and staff: Their mobility is equally based on bilateral agreements between their home and its partner universities. Take your chance and become a part of the ‘ERASMUS generation’!
Lecturers can benefit from ERASMUS to go abroad for short-term teaching at partner universities. The ERASMUS STA-Travel program covers costs for transportation and living according to a European Union scheme.
The ERASMUS program pillar for staff mobility (in place from 2007-13) financially supports university staff members to pursue self-organized trainings at partner institutions. The program is directed especially at administrative and technical personnel and also supports educational trainings in European businesses.
Jacobs University has a network of six ERASMUS partner universities that it is constantly seeking to expand.
