Overview

Erasmus logo

The Erasmus+ programme is funded by the European Commission and provides opportunities for students to study and work abroad and for staff to teach and/or train abroad. 

The programmes aim to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It supports student and staff individual mobility and collaboration between universities. It also helps to boost employability and improves opportunities for young people. 

Regent’s London University was awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) in 2014 and has been actively participating in the Erasmus+ programme ever since.
