What is the Erasmus+ programme?

The Erasmus+ programme is funded by the European Commission and aims to encourage university students and staff to gain experience by spending a period of time studying or working in another European or European Economic Area country. Students can improve their skills, enhance their employability and gain valuable international experience. Staff can discover new ways of working and support their professional development

Erasmus+ study exchange opportunities are available to students of all degree programmes at University of Aberdeen (excluding Medicine).  Destinations available depend on the degree programme and the level and duration of the exchange may be subject to programme requirements.  It is possible to participate even if you do not speak another language, the majority of our partner universities teach in English.

The University has Erasmus links with over 120 universities. Each year we send around 250 students on Erasmus exchange to partner institutions or to undertake traineeships, and we receive around 300 students across a wide range of subject areas.
