Students in higher education may spend a study or work period (from 3 to 12 months) in another participating country in the framework of agreed arrangements with universities and enterprises. They generally receive a grant to help offset the 'mobility costs' of studying or working in another country, such as travel, language preparation and differences in cost of living. Their award depends on several elements which vary from country to country.
Full academic recognition for the study or work period carried out abroad must be ensured before departure. The programme is open to all higher education students (up to and including doctorate) from a participating country, except for students enrolled in their first year of higher education.
