Text:

Under the new Erasmus+ programme, the EU will offer Ukrainians more opportunities to benefit from grants for student mobility, academic cooperation, and youth exchanges.

Over 4,000 young Ukrainians are expected to benefit from university exchanges under Erasmus+ , and staff will also receive grants for training and teaching opportunities abroad.

In addition to this, Ukrainian students and universities will be eligible for scholarships to follow full joint Master’s degrees offered by consortia of European universities under Erasmus+

More than 7,000 Ukrainians will also receive EU support to participate in youth exchanges, in the European Voluntary Service, or through funding for the mobility of youth workers.

EU support for capacity building measures will be offered to Ukrainian universities to modernise curricula, teaching practices, upgrade facilities, and improve governance.

Ukraine will continue to take part in the eTwinning initiative for schools, with more than 100 Ukrainian schools and nearly 300 teachers already registered since the official launch in March 2013.

Researchers will be able to apply for doctoral or post-doctoral fellowships of other research grants available under the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions. Since 2007, the EU has awarded nearly 200 grants to Ukrainian researchers.
