Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027. The Programme strengthens its efforts to increase the opportunities offered to more participants and to a wider range of organisations, focusing on its qualitative impact and contributing to more inclusive and cohesive, greener and digitally fit societies.
The University of Western Macedonia has been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027.
Institutional Erasmus Code: G KOZANI02
This action supports physical and blended mobility of higher education students in any study fields and cycle (bachelor, master and doctoral levels). Students can either study abroad at a partner higher education institution or carry out a traineeship in an enterprise, a research institute, a laboratory, an organisation or any other relevant workplace abroad. Students can also combine a study period abroad with a traineeship, further enhancing the learning outcomes and development of transversal skills. While long term physical mobility is strongly encouraged, this action recognises the need to offer more flexible physical mobility duration to ensure the programme is accessible to students from all backgrounds, circumstances and study fields.
This action also supports higher education teaching and administrative staff to take part in professional development activities abroad as well as staff from the world of work to teach and train students or staff at higher education institutions. These activities may consist of teaching as well as training periods (such as job shadowing, observation periods, training courses).
The Erasmus Office of the University of Western Macedonia manages the Erasmus+ mobility projects and provides information and support to all the participants.
