Erasmus+ is the European Commission's flagship educational programme for higher education students, teachers, and institutions. It was introduced with the aim of increasing student mobility within Europe and forms part of the EU Lifelong Learning Programme.

It encourages student and staff mobility for study and work, and promotes transnational co-operation projects among universities across Europe. The Study scheme currently involves 9 out of every 10 European higher education establishments and supports co-operation between the universities of 33 countries.  The Work programme allows students to participate in work placements in institutions or companies within any European country.

Aberystwyth University has recently been awarded the Erasmus+ Charter 2014-2020. To view our charter and Aberystwyth University's policy statement, please visit the links below:
