Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014 – 2020

Europe has more to offer
Erasmus+ is the new European subsidy programme for education, youth and sport. At the basis is the notion that investing in education, training and informal learning are of crucial importance to give people – irrespective of age and background -  the opportunity to develop themselves on a continuous basis; in other words: life long learning.

The knowledge and/or skills mastered will contribute to make the European economy stronger. In order to remain an attractive knowledge-based economy and to be able to compete with other knowledge-based areas worldwide, Europe needs to become smarter. Erasmus+ is the way to achieve that larger goal.

The Erasmus+ programme, which offers students and staff unique opportunities for a study, internship or teaching experience in any other European country and Turkey for three to twelve months.
