The EU today celebrates 30 years of its ‘Erasmus’ programme. Since the beginning of the original Erasmus Programme in 1987, 9 million people have benefitted from an exchange abroad. To mark the occasion, the Commission is also launching a new Erasmus+ mobile application.
Designed for students, vocational learners and participants in youth exchanges, the app will help students to plan their year abroad.
The Erasmus+ Mobile App will allow participants to:
– Easily track their progress in the different administrative steps before, during and after their stay abroad;
– Agree and sign their study agreements online with both sending and receiving universities;
– Share and vote for their preferred tips to help others integrate into the local community;
– Improve their language skills via a direct link to the Erasmus+ Online Linguistic Support platform, offering online tutored courses and interactive live mentoring.
The first version of the app is already available for both iOS and Android. New features and constant updates will soon extend it to other groups of Erasmus+ participants.
