Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. Education, training, youth and sport can make a major contribution to help tackle socio-economic changes, the key challenges that Europe will be facing until the end of the decade and to support the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion. The programme provides opportunities for students to study or gain work experience in a different European country while completing a degree. There are many benefits, including the chance to learn another European language, and to experience life within a different culture. More information:

KTU has been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education by the European Commission for the period 2014-2020 which is a pre-requisite for higher education institutions to participate in the Erasmus+ Programme.

Students studying any subject, both undergraduate and postgraduate, can apply to participate in the Erasmus+ Programme for studies and traineeship abroad.
