Erasmus in Doha

Home > Expat Guides > Middle East > Qatar > Doha

The Erasmus Programme (EuRopean Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) was created to ease cooperation between European universities and allow for full academic recognition of studies and qualifications throughout the European Union. Named after a 16th century Dutch scholar, Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam, the programme has grown and adjusted to the changing needs and demands of the students and EU. Funding and management has been a problem and a massive overhaul of the Programme was in order. Erasmus for All has replaced the many different programmes to reduce administration costs, duplication and fragmentation. The Programme will be in operation until 2020.

Erasmus for All Programme in Qatar

The programme is uncommon in Qatar, but the programme is open to higher education institutions and organisation active in the field of higher education and research, as well as to students, doctoral candidates, teachers, researchers and university staff from any part of the world.

Check the Erasmus partnerships currently open for Qatar at the EACEA site's info for Action 2. Visit the partnership website to see which courses are available in which disciplines. Apply direct to the partnership via its website. If you are registered at one of the partner institutions, you should contact your International Office.
