The Commission launched the new Erasmus+ application, marking a new milestone in the digitalisation of the Erasmus+ programme. The new application, available in all EU languages, will provide a digital European Student Card to each student, valid all across the European Union.
Vice-President for Promoting European Way of Life, Margaritis Schinas said: “I am glad that the interface of our flagship programme for young people, Erasmus+, is becoming more like them. More digital, more mobile, and more community-oriented. The new app and its embedded Student Card are emblematic of the European Education Area we stand for.”
Thanks to the new app, which works on Android and iOS systems, students will be able to:
Browse and select their destination among their university’s partners;
Sign their online learning agreement;
Discover events and useful tips about their destination, and get in touch with other students; and,
Obtain their European Student Card to get access to services, museums, cultural activities and special deals in their host university and country.
Since the beginning of the original Erasmus Programme in 1987, 10 million people have experienced an exchange abroad. The new Erasmus+ programme provides opportunities for study periods abroad, traineeships, apprenticeships, and staff exchanges in all fields of education, training, youth and sport, and at all ages.
