Erasmus+ is EU´s programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport. It is EU´s flagship education and training programme for universities around Europe and gives students the opportunity to exchange knowledge through, among other things, international mobilities.

In 2021 Jönköping University (JU) successfully renewed the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) for the period 2021-2027. The ECHE provides the general quality framework for European and international cooperation activities within Erasmus+.

The 2021-2027 programme places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life.

Within the Erasmus+ agreements for your study programme, you can participate in exchange studies or traineeships from two to twelve months. To be selected for an Erasmus+ exchange, you must have completed at least one year of studies and must still be registered in one of JU´s study programmes.



The application for the Erasmus+ scholarship for studies is CLOSED.
