Erasmus+ is the EU’s program to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. In 2022, IEAA was appointed as the Erasmus+ National Focal Point (ENFP) for Australia.

Erasmus+ for education providers

The Erasmus+ program offers support to education and training organisations through a variety of different projects. Currently, Australian education providers can apply to participate in:

1. International Credit Mobility

International Credit Mobility (ICM) supports inter-country mobility in higher education institutions (HEIs) by enabling Australian universities to set up agreements with Erasmus+ partners in the European Union (EU) to send and receive staff and students.

Staff mobility can be carried out by HEIs staff or by invited staff from outside the university. The mobility period can last from five days to two months. It can take the form of:

  • A teaching period for academic staff and invited staff from non-academic organisations to teach at an Erasmus+ partner HEI in the EU.
  • A training period for academic and non-academic staff in the form of training events in the EU (excluding conferences), job shadowing, observation periods and/or training at an Erasmus+ partner HEI.

A staff mobility period can combine teaching and training activities. Any teaching or training period may be carried out as blended mobility with a virtual component.

The scheme provides funding support for travel and living costs.

Staff should contact their university’s international relations office to see if it has one or more Erasmus+ partnerships in place and about the ICM application and selection process.

2. Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters


Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM) are high-level and integrated study programs at Masters level. They are designed and delivered by an international partnership of higher education institutions (HEIs) and involve at least three HEIs from three different countries, of which at least two must be European Union member states.

Read more about EMJM here.

3. Erasmus Mundus Design Measures


Erasmus Mundus Design Measures (EMDM) are projects that support the design of new high-level study programmes at Masters level, delivered by an international partnership of higher education institutions (HEIs) and involve at least three HEIs from three different countries, of which at least two must be European Union member states.

4. Jean Monnet Actions for higher education


Jean Monnet Actions (JM) for higher education aim to promote excellence worldwide in teaching and research in the field of European Union (EU) studies. They also aim to foster dialogue between the academic world and policymakers, in particular to enhance governance of EU policies.

‘European Union studies’ means the study of Europe in its entirety, with particular emphasis on the EU dimension, from an internal but also from a global perspective. It covers the role of the EU in a globalised world and in promoting active European citizenship and dialogue between people and cultures.

JM Actions are expected to bring positive and long-lasting effects to the participants involved, to the promoting organisations and to the policy systems within which they are framed.

Actions might include a Jean Monnet module, chair or centre of excellence.

Read more about JM Actions here.

For further information about any of these four actions, check the Erasmus+ website.
