About Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility: Expanding beyond Europe.
Erasmus+ is the EU funding and exchange programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport. Over three million European students have participated in this highly regarded EU flagship exchange programme since its inception in 1987. In the Netherlands, the programme is managed by the Dutch Erasmus+ National Agency.
Since 2015, Erasmus+ has offered student exchange opportunities beyond Europe through the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) Programme, expanding past the intra-European exchange programme in existence since the implementation of Erasmus in 1987. Supported by the European Commission, the Erasmus+ ICM Programme promotes the mobility of people for study, teaching or training between higher education institutions located in Programme Countries (predominantly the EU, EEA) and Partner Countries (rest of the world).
