Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) Grants

Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Grants - for mobilities with countries outside of Europe

This initiative builds on the experience and success of the Erasmus programmes in the EU and in higher education. The Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility supports the international exchange of students, academics, ideas and good practice between cooperating institutions.
The program provides funding for study abroad periods, visiting lecturer exchanges and professional training abroad for university staff between Erasmus+ Programme countries (in Europe), and Partner countries (outside of Europe).
Students must be registered in a higher education institution and enrolled in studies leading to a recognized degree or other recognized 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. These Erasmus bilateral agreements are signed for determined study areas between CEU and partner universities. Students and Academic staff applying to partner universities relevant to the applicant's current field of study are preferred in the competition.
Please, note that Erasmus+ International Credit mobilities can be implemented only between specific countries and specific partner universities.
