Erasmus+ is the European Union’s (EU) funding programme for education and training, youth and sport between 2014 and 2020.

The University of Oxford has successfully been awarded a charter to take part in the programme, and bids for funding each year to support activities under Key Action 1: Mobility for Higher Education Students and Staff.

This includes the following;

  • Student mobility for studies with our partner Universities across Europe, giving students the chance to study for between 3 and 12 months at another institution.
  • Student mobility for traineeships for students undertaking a work placement abroad lasting between 2 and 12 months.
  • Teaching assignments for staff to spend from 2 days to 2 months at a partner University abroad.
  • Staff mobility for training such as attending a workshop or job shadowing in a relevant organisation abroad.

Departments from the Social Sciences Division have also applied for research funding through Key Action 2 calls, aimed at Strategic Partnerships in the field of Education, Training and Youth.
