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).
Leiden University Staff and Student Exchange
Leiden University is striving to create a more international student body, strengthen the international character of the University and internationalise the learning experience for students. One of the main internationalisation priorities stated in Leiden University’s strategic plan is the creation of an international classroom with a diverse international student population. This will offer students an international study climate in both the bachelor and the master phase, in preparation for social and professional positions in an increasingly international society. This international study climate can be strengthened by deploying internationally-oriented academic staff, more focus on international knowledge and intercultural competences in the curriculum, encouraging educational interaction between Dutch and international students and increasing our students’ study abroad experiences.
