In 2017, the students and youth of Europe are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus programme. The Erasmus+ programme is considered one of the biggest achievements of the European Union that makes a real difference and goes way beyond its borders. The Erasmus programme that started in 1987 as a student mobility programme with only a limited number of mobile students in Europe has seen a tremendous growth. Up until 2017, more than 9 million beneficiaries have been able to learn, study, teach, travel and grow through Erasmus+. Adding a plus to the Erasmus in 2014 meant not only more funding allocated to the programme, but also more countries across the world to get exposure to the programme. Here you can read all about the remarkable Erasmus anniversary in 2017 and the countless pluses the participation in Erasmus+ could bring to students, higher education institutions and communities across the world.
