For more than 25 years, the European Union has funded the Erasmus programme, enabling over three million European students to spend part of their studies in another institution elsewhere in Europe. Recognizing the importance of the extra-European international dimension, especially in higher education, Erasmus+ as of 2015 also offers opportunities for individuals to study, work or teach in other parts of the world. It also makes the same opportunities available for students from these areas to come to study in ECHE holding higher education institutions in Europe.
International Credit Mobility is an activity under Key Action 1 (KA171). An institution in a Partner Country/Third countries associated to the Programme can send its students and/or staff to a partner institution in a Programme Country and vice versa. Students can study abroad and may benefit from an Erasmus+ grant to help with living costs. Staff can perform teaching and/or training abroad, and they may also benefit from an Erasmus+ grant.
In accordance with the Internationalization Strategy 2014-25 and priority subject areas of cooperation between UNIZG and partner universities, the University of Zagreb (UNIZG) participates in the Erasmus+ programme KA171 programme for Partner countries since 2015. The list of UNIZG Partner institutions that actively exchange students and staff members is available here:
