ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Erasmus + program provides an opportunity for higher education institutions to participate in mobility projects and send students and employees of higher education institutions to other European countries or participate in international cooperation projects.
Under KA1 mobility projects, institutions can send their students and employees for shorter or longer periods of study, training or internship in one of the program countries, or they can organize various incoming mobility activities for partner institutions. Physical as well as blended mobility projects are available for students and employees in higher education institutions with the aim of strengthening the quality of teaching, the European dimension in teaching and the contribution to the European educational area.
Institutions and organizations that can fully participate in the Erasmus + program must belong to the so-called. program countries (all European Union countries, Serbia, Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey), while some parts of the program are open to participants from the so-called. partner countries (other countries neighboring the European Union and all countries of the world). Since the competition deadline for 2019, the Republic of Serbia has been participating in the program as a full member.
Students can go on mobility from all fields and from all levels of study (short programs, undergraduate, master’s and doctoral studies).
The types of student mobility that can be implemented are: mobility for study, mobility for work practice, combined mobility for the purpose of studying and doing work practice, doctoral mobility for the purpose of studying or doing work practice, combined intensive programs.
The program primarily supports long-term mobility, but also recognizes the importance of short-term mobility, which opens the possibility for a larger number of students from different environments, study conditions and study programs to participate in mobility.
Mobility projects in higher education also support the mobility of teaching and non-teaching staff, as well as employees in the economy in order to further their professional development. Employee mobility can be mobility for the purpose of: teaching, training.
The TEMPUS FOUNDATION is responsible for promoting and implementing the Erasmus + program in Serbia in the field of education, training and youth.
