Exchange mobility within Erasmus+ is based on bilateral agreements between higher education institutions. The agreements are the basis for the exchange of students and teaching staff, who may also be awarded scholarships for their exchange visits.
There are also scholarships for students doing internships and for administrative staff.
The programme strives for increased mobility among students and teaching staff, more openness, and the recognition of academic studies and qualifications.
Funding mainly goes to collaborations between European higher education institutions, but some funding is available for collaboration with education institutions outside Europe.
