Erasmus+  logo

What is Erasmus+?

Erasmus+ runs from 2014-2020 and supports activities in education, training, youth and sport across all sectors of lifelong learning including higher education, further education, adult education, schools and youth activities.

Aims and objectives of Erasmus+

Erasmus+ aims to boost skills and employability as well as modernise education, training, and youth work across Europe. It has a budget of approximately 14.7 billion euros across Europe and will, over the next seven years, provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad and will also support transnational partnerships between education, training and youth organisations, as well as support grassroots sport projects.

We are proud to be associated with the programme and was awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020.

Outgoing Students

Students from third year of the International Business programme can participate on a study mobility for one semester or the full academic year. Students are only permitted to partake in the programme with prior approval by the Academic Co-Ordinator..

Students can only study in either France, Germany or Spain to which TU Dublin - Blanchardstown Campus has an established a bi-lateral agreement.

Students must attend the information session held at the end of March each year which gives specific details and assistance with regard to college/module selection, grant information (€230 per calendar month for studying in either France, Germany or Spain) and the necessary documentation to be completed.

The Erasmus Academic Co-Ordinator will nominate each student to the host institution but students are responsible for contacting their host college and completing the required application form by their stated closing date.

In advance of their planned mobility students must ensure that they submit a learning agreement to their host university and have it signed by the Erasmus Co-Ordinator.  Any subsequent subject changes/additions must be recorded after arriving at the host University.

Students must complete the Bank Details Form and return to the Erasmus Office by July 1st.

Each student will be issued with a contract prior to departure which they must read and sign, then return to the Erasmus Office.

All students are obliged to return from their studies with a certificate of attendance.

It is compulsory that all students have appropriate travel insurance and the European Health Insurance prior to travelling.

After the study period the European Commission will send each student a request by e-mail to complete a final report, which must be submitted online.
