Erasmus+ programme

Erasmus+ is the European Union-funded programme from 2014-2020. It aims to enhance the European dimension of higher education and promote mobility within the EU.

Solent University has been awarded an Erasmus University Charter (Extended) for the period 2014-2020. This means that the University is able to participate in European programmes, send students and staff members to, and receive students and staff from, higher education institutions across Europe on study, training, teaching or work shadowing visits (provided that the institution is also in receipt of the Erasmus University Charter). Universities in 33 European countries participate in this flagship educational programme for higher education.

Erasmus+ aims to boost skills and employability as well as modernise education, training, and youth work across Europe. It has a budget of approximately 14.7 billion euros across Europe and will provide opportunities for over four million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad. It will also support transnational partnerships between education, training and youth organisations, as well as developing grassroots sport projects.
