About Eramsus +

About Eramsus +

Understanding Erasmus+ in our School

Erasmus+ is an EU programme that can help our students and teachers to travel to experience work, study or train in another country. The time abroad on Erasmus+ can be from 2 days to 30 days or from 2 weeks to a year depending on the type of project we engage.

Erasmus+ is open to:

  • Pupils
  • Staff

We can travel to any EU country and some countries outside of the EU with Erasmus+.

Programme countries are eligible for all parts of Erasmus+. Programme countries include all EU member states, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein, the Republic of North Macedonia, Turkey and Serbia.

You will generally get Erasmus+ funding to help cover your travel costs and living expenses such as accommodation and food. Any costs not related to these you will have to cover yourself. The amount of funding you get depends on the type of project you are on.

Extra funding is available to support people with disabilities and from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Erasmus+ Ethos

  • Inclusive Erasmus+ aims to ensure equal opportunities for everyone
  • Digital Erasmus+ aims to develop accessible and high-quality digital learning and training
  • Green Erasmus+ encourages participants to build knowledge and understanding of sustainability and climate change and to use lower carbon transport
  • Erasmus+ participation in democratic life supports active engagement in society

If you are at school, you can spend time abroad studying at a partner school. You can also go as part of a group to learn with other school students abroad.

Erasmus Exchange Programme Benefits

There are numerous benefits of completing a student exchange when studying the language of the host country. Some of these benefits include:

  1. Improved language skills: Being immersed in a foreign language environment provides the opportunity to practice and improve language skills.
  2. Cultural immersion: Spending time abroad offers the opportunity to fully experience the culture of the host country, including language, food, customs, and traditions.
  3. Expanded worldview: Living in a foreign country and interacting with people from different backgrounds can broaden one's perspective and understanding of the world.
  4. Increased independence: Living with a host family in a foreign country requires individuals to adapt to new environments and situations, which can help develop independence and self-confidence.
  5. Professional development: Engaging in student exchange programmes can enhance a student's resume and make them more attractive to future employers, especially in fields that require language skills or experience working in a global context.
  6. Personal growth: Studying abroad can be a challenging experience that requires individuals to step outside of their comfort zones, which can lead to personal growth and self-discovery..
  7. Friendship and cultural exchange: Studying abroad can lead to lasting friendships with people from different cultures, creating opportunities for ongoing cultural exchange and learning.
