Erasmus - study, work or teach in Europe

Erasmus is the European Commission's exchange programme that enables students in 33 European countries to study, work or teach for part of their degree in another country.

Why join the Erasmus programme?

Erasmus is a great opportunity to spend between 3 and 12 months in another European country, and have it count towards your degree.

You get to experience another culture and a new way of looking at your subject. You can make new friends and grow as a person.

The Erasmus programme is open to undergraduates and postgraduates. If you're interested in studying, working or teaching in Europe you'll first need to check that your department participates in the scheme.
