Aims of the Erasmus mobility program
The long-term strategic objectives of EU education and training policies are:
- Making lifelong learning and mobility a reality;
- Improving the quality and efficiency of education and training;
- Promoting equity, social cohesion and active citizenship;
- Enhancing creativity and innovation, including entrepreneurship, at all levels of education and training.
It is already notorious throughout Europe as a mobility scheme for students to study and intern abroad, however, now Erasmus + looks to cover all the important aspects of both education and training:
- School education opportunities for staff and institutions;
- Vocational education and training opportunities for students, apprentices, trainees, staff, institutions, and business;
- Higher Education opportunities for students, staff, institutions, and businesses;
- Adult Education opportunities for staff, institutions, and businesses;
- European Integration opportunities for academic and research staff and institutions.
Eurasmus is fully committed with Erasmus +, aiming to make easier and more accessible mobility programmes in Europe.
