Learning Mobility of Individuals

Higher education student and staff mobility between Programme and Partner Countries



The Erasmus Programme (European Region Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is a European Union (EU) student exchange programme established in 1987. Erasmus+, or Erasmus Plus, is the new programme combining all the EU's current schemes for education, training, youth and sport, which was started in January 2014.

Erasmus + is designed to graduate students

The Erasmus + between UPB and UFF, that is from Bucarest and Niteroi started in October 2016 and ends in September 2019.
