Funding of international mobility

Erasmus+ Programme

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+ (2014-2020).  

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 (link to Into). The exchange period is 3-12 months.
  • Student mobility for training: Students can take part in max 3 months practical training abroad and get funded by Erasmus+ programme. (link to Careerweb)
  • 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.

Individual guidance in the programme:

Erasmus Charter for Higher Education

Each university which is part of the Erasmus program has an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education, granted by the European Commission. The charter provides a framework for all Erasmus University co-operation and the activities involved. It also describes the basic principles, terms and conditions of the cooperation.
