Mobility projects in Erasmus+

Mobility projects in Erasmus+ support study and training periods abroad in general education and vocational education and training. The aim is to achieve positive and sustainable effects for the participants and the participating organisations.

This is the sub-programme with the highest budget within the Erasmus+ programme: From 2014 to 2020 the European Union wants to support up to five million stays abroad throughout Europe.

In Austria alone some 14,000 people become mobile by means of Erasmus+ every year.

Institutions working in the field of education can submit mobility projects. The projects support the mobility of learners, teachers and staff at educational institutions.

It has been proved that education-related stays abroad contribute to an improvement of people’s vocational, social and foreign language abilities and skills. The experience gained not only enriches people on the personal level but also enters educational institutions and the labour market. It contributes to internationalisation, an increase in quality and innovation of the national education systems.

Students can spend part of their studies or do an internship in another European country by means of Erasmus+. Graduates as well as pupils in initial vocational education and apprentices also have the possibility to do on-the-job training abroad. Teachers and staff of educational institutions of all educational sectors can benefit from further education activities abroad or teach abroad for a certain period of time. International mobility in higher education to and from partner countries worldwide as well as "Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degrees" are also supported.
