Erasmus+ 2016

The European Commission will provide 2.2 billion Euros to fund opportunities for young people across the world to study, train, and volunteer or participate in youth exchanges and projects abroad under the Erasmus+ program.

Erasmus+ aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernise education, training, and youth work. The program includes several funding opportunities for American universities, students, and faculty to work and study in Erasmus+ programme countries. In 2016 alone, Erasmus+ will fund international opportunities for 800,000 students (undergraduate, masters, and post-graduate), faculty, administrators, and universities.

Under the Erasmus+ programme, Americans will have the opportunity to:

  • Study;
  • Train;
  • Volunteer;
  • Or participate in youth exchanges and projects abroad in programme countries.

Erasmus+ aims to help American individual learners acquire skills, to support their professional development, and deepen their understanding of other European cultures. The seven year programme will have a budget of €14.7 billion; a 40% increase compared to current spending levels, reflecting the EU’s commitment to investing in these areas.
