What is Erasmus Programme?

Last updated by Marjolijn Klomp

The ERASMUS programme is a European student exchange programme established in 1987 offering university students a possibility of studying or working abroad in another European country for a period of at least 3 months and maximum 12 months. The name of the project refers to Dutch Renaissance humanist and theologian Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam. He studied at diverse European universities and described the education as a chance for modern people.

Since 2007 the Erasmus project is a part of The Lifelong Learning Programme (other projects: Comenius, Grundtvig and Leonardo da Vinci), which is determined for the years 2007-2013.
