The Erasmus+ Program is the most important student exchange program in the European Union, and since its launch, more than one million students have enjoyed the experience of studying in another country. This Program involves thousands of higher education institutions from the most different countries, most of which are European.
It is a program that, despite seeing a large part of its action in the dimension of higher education, extends to social and cultural aspects that provide a space for openness, tolerance and intercultural dialogue between young Europeans.
The program allows for mobility of a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 12 months at a partner University.
Apply as an Erasmus student –
For a student to come to IST during an academic year or a semester, he/she must first be nominated by their home university. Students should therefore contact their school’s office responsible for ERASMUS to find out what they have to do to be nominated. The student’s nomination can only be accepted if there is a bilateral agreement previously established between the two institutions.
The student’s home university must send an email to the Erasmus Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive the link to make the nominations for the students who have been selected to come to IST.
After the nomination, and closer to the opening date for applications, students will receive an email from the Erasmus team with the procedures and the link to apply.
