The Erasmus Programme (EuRopean Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) allows for staff and students to transfer between learning institutions with full academic recognition of studies and qualifications, tuition waiver, and grants. Originally catering only to European people and programs, it has now expanded to cover other areas of the world.

Scholarships cover participation costs, subsistence costs, and insurance for the duration of the study period. Many students also have the right to a contribution to travel costs.
