Origin ERASMUS+ Programme
Erasmus+ is a programme of the European Union named after Erasmus of Rotterdam, a humanist with a universal European education in his time. Central components are the recognition of study achievements abroad on the basis of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and financial support for exchange students. Signing the ERASMUS Charter for Higher Education creates an obligation to adhere to the corresponding quality standards.
Aims of the ERASMUS+ Programme
The main objective of the programme is to strengthen the employability of students by promoting their mobility. At the same time, by promoting the mobility of academic staff, the expansion of the European Research Area is to be advanced. This means that study visits, internships abroad within the framework of studies, teaching stays as well as further training of general university staff can be supported.
Target group and strategy statement
The Erasmus programme is open to all students who are regular students at a participating higher education institution. The same applies to teaching and administrative staff.
However, a prerequisite is that the sending and the receiving higher education institution have a corresponding bilateral agreement. Landshut University of Applied Sciences has declared the continuous expansion of international activities and partnerships in an ERASMUS + Strategy Statement.
With the Erasmus+ programme, students have the unique opportunity to spend 2 to 12 months studying or working abroad in Europe and to receive financial support.
