Mobility grants

Since 2015 Alliance 4 Universities has been taking part in Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility programme (Action KA171). Through this programme, students and staff from non-European partner universities can come on exchange for studies, research, teaching or training to A4U universities. Vice versa, students and staff from A4U universities can go on exchange to non-European countries.

The open calls for applications will be published below, and the previous calls and results are available here.

In order to apply:
