The Erasmus programme is one of the most popular success stories of the European Union. While it’s best known as a study exchange programme, its budget worth billions of Euros provides opportunities in many other areas as well, including training, sports and youth support.

Previous participants have described it as the “cornerstone of the construction of the EU”, claiming it “made them “feel like a global citizen”.

Fidel Corcuera Manso, Director of French Studies at the University of Zaragoza in Spain, has been involved in Erasmus since the very beginning in 1987. He said: “Erasmus+ has allowed a large number of young people to leave their daily lives in order to study abroad and realise another reality, in another language.” He believes the programme “has helped to internalise the concept of freedom.”
