Leiden University takes part in several European research and education projects.
Leiden University participates in the Erasmus+ programme and has been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027. Read also our Erasmus Policy Statement. We currently offer a wide range of possibilities for exchanges in Europe to our students and annually host around 500 Erasmus students from elsewhere in Europe.
The European Commission has a budget of € 26.2 billion for Erasmus+ 2021-2027. This programme will fund learning mobility and cross-border cooperation projects for 10 million Europeans of all ages and all backgrounds. It will seek to be even more inclusive and to support the green and digital transitions, as set out in the European Education Area. Erasmus+ will also support the resilience of education and training systems in the face of the pandemic.
