ERASMUS+ is the European Union's programme for education, youth and sport. The previous EU programmes for lifelong learning, youth and sport, as well as the European university cooperation programme, are combined in ERASMUS+.
At the end of the first year of their university course, students can study at a European university in another country participating in the programme in order to expand their social and cultural skills and improve their career perspectives. They get to know the academic system in a foreign university including the methods of teaching and learning. To do so, students can apply for an ERASMUS scholarship.
