Erasmus+ programme

What is it for?

Erasmus+ programme aims to strengthen the quality of youth work and non-formal learning for young people in Europe.

It provides opportunities for young people to experience learning mobility in Europe and beyond and for youth workers to develop their interpersonal skills and improve their employment prospects through training and networking opportunities in Europe and beyond.

Who can take part?

  • Students at higher education institutions;

  • Higher education institution staff (academic and non-academic);

  • Private companies

How long can students go abroad?

Students can go abroad for 3 to 12 months (including a complementary traineeship period, if planned). The same student may receive grants for studying or being trained abroad totaling up to 12 months.

What are the conditions?

Students must be registered in a higher education institution and enrolled in studies leading to a recognised degree or other recognised tertiary level qualification (up to and including the level of doctorate).

The mobility is carried out in the framework of prior “inter-institutional agreements” between the sending and receiving institutions, both of which must be holders of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (if located in a Programme country).

Will financial support be provided or fees charged?

Students may be awarded an Erasmus+ EU grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs incurred in connection with their study period abroad

Erasmus+ students - whether or not they receive an Erasmus+ EU grant - are exempted from paying fees for tuition, registration, examinations and access to laboratory and library facilities at the host institution.

All exchange students coming to study at the Faculty of Economics & Business University of Zagreb within ERASMUS+ programme are required to submit their application at the link of University of Zagreb:
