Along with more than 150 world’s countries, Ukraine is included in the list of the Erasmus+ Partner Countries.
The Erasmus+ programme provides grants for a wide range of activities in the field of youth education. The programme affords the opportunity for students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend time abroad in order to improve their skills and obtain employment. It supports organisations that work in international partnerships and share innovative practices in education, training and youth.
The annual call for proposals covers the following actions of the Erasmus+ programme:
- KA1 – Mobility of Young People and Youth Workers: youth exchanges, volunteer projects and professional development of youth workers;
- KA2 – cooperation projects (strategic partnerships): cooperation between organisations in the field of innovation and exchange of good practices.
The German Academic Exchange Service is the world’s largest organisation supporting international student and academic exchange. It is a registered association based in Bonn, and its members are all state-accredited higher education institutions and student representatives of these institutions.
