ErasmusPlus Global Mobility offers unique opportunities to study, teach and work in countries outside Europe. The participants can gain new qualifications and skills in an international environment and also improve their language skills.
Funding of international mobility
Erasmus+ Erasmus is Europe’s largest university exchange program, supporting European cooperation in higher education and funding international student and staff mobility. The new program umbrella is called Erasmus+ (2021-2027).
Who is eligible?
- Student mobility for studies: Students are encouraged to spend some time at one of Aalto’s partner institutions to enrich their cultural awareness, academic competence and grow their independence. Student mobility is supported by Erasmus+ scholarships for exchanges in Erasmus+ partner institutions of Aalto University abroad. Long-term mobility period is 3-12 months and short-term mobility period 5-30 days.
- Student mobility for training: Students can complete an internship abroad and apply for Erasmus+ funding for it (max. 4 months).
- Staff mobility for training: Also administrative staff are able to benefit from work shadowing and benchmarking at a partner university to see how administrative tasks are handled abroad.
- Staff mobility for teaching: Research and teaching staff are able to learn from experts at a foreign university and exchange ideas with their colleagues abroad.
- Blended Intensive Programmes (5-30 days' short courses that combine virtual and physical learning components for students and staff)
