Would you like to improve your communication skills in English, get new experiences, and meet new people from all over Europe? How about going on an Erasmus+ project?

For almost 30 years, the EU has funded Erasmus programmes, enabling more than 3 million students to travel and study in participating countries. Erasmus+ offers you a wide range of opportunities – studying, doing internship, working or volunteering, and all your expenses will be reimbursed.

Being uninformed deprives us of new experiences, opportunities, and experiences. Thus, we have decided to draw attention to the opportunities the EU offers you to take part in interesting youth exchanges or training courses and was able to develop personally and in career. Erasmus+ aims to promote lifelong learning, integration, and cooperation with other countries.

What opportunities do you have?

Vocational education and training

Organisations such as IUVENTA (Slovak Youth Institute) and SAAIC (Slovak Academic Association for International Cooperation) focus on promoting internships that involve practical teaching and working.
