Erasmus+ is an umbrella Programme funded by the European Commission, focusing on education, training, youth and sport.

Throughout the last two decades, “Erasmus” has become a veritable ‘brand’ that many university students associate with study and internship mobilities. Such activities are meant to provide students with an eye-opening international experience that primarily helps them learn in a different environment and through different methods and experiences compared to those typical for their home institution. They are also meant to develop their communication and language skills, as well as facilitate their personal development and self-confidence. The mobilities are available for all study fields and cycles (bachelor/master/doctoral), and if you are a student of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi (or any other participating university) we strongly encourage you to apply for an Erasmus+ mobility.

Countless friendships have been cemented, careers have been launched and minds opened through attending these types of mobilities. However, these are only one of the 13 types of activities that fall under the first Key Action of the broader Erasmus+ umbrella. The programme covers the following actions:

Key Action 1 – Learning Mobility of Individuals – focused on mobilities for youth, learners, educators, researchers and staff

Key Action 2 – Cooperation Among Organizations and Institutions – focused on creating and nurturing trans-national partnerships in education, innovation, youth and sport

Key Action 3 – Support to Policy Development and Cooperation – focused cooperation that contributes to the development of EU policies in education, training youth and sport

Jean Monnet Actions – focused on spreading knowledge about European Union integration across a wide variety of fields through numerous types of activities.
