Erasmus+ is the European Union's new programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport and runs from 2014 to 2021. Under it, students and staff at JUST will continue to have a range of opportunities to study, train or teach abroad. Learn more about Erasmus+.
What's in it for individuals?
ICM projects aim to help participants acquire key skills, support their professional development and deepen their understanding of other cultures. The Erasmus Impact Study1 finds that taking part in Erasmus+ is likely to boost a graduate's employability and transversal skills. Unemployment rates among Erasmus participants are 23% lower 5 years after graduation compared to those who did not go abroad. Two-thirds of employers think that international experience is a key asset for job candidates and leads to greater professional responsibility. Staff can acquire new competencies for their professional development, improve their language skills and learn about new working methods.
What's in it for institutions?
ICM aims to increase the capacities, attractiveness and international dimension of the organizations taking part. International ties between institutions will be strengthened, giving the partners the opportunity to increase their visibility at local and global levels. Both incoming and outgoing students will be ready to share their positive experiences of studying at your institution.
