Written answers (Question to Further and Higher Education)

It is important to note that student participation in the Erasmus+ Programme does not depend on the nationality of the student, but on the institution in which the student is registered. Education institutions must hold the Erasmus Mobility Charter, which allows them to partner with each other. Once there is an Inter-institutional agreement between the 'sending' and 'host' institution, it is open to all registered students, irrespective of nationality, in these institutions to pursue mobility opportunities, subject to the institutions' agreement.

If any student requires any information or reassurance regarding their Erasmus mobilities, he/ she should contact the Erasmus desk in their Further and Higher Education Institutions.
