Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe.
Managed by the European Commission, the general objective of the Programme is to support, through lifelong learning, the educational, professional and personal development of people in education, training, youth and sport, in Europe and beyond, thereby contributing to sustainable growth, quality jobs and social cohesion, to driving innovation, and to strengthening European identity and active citizenship.
The ERASMUS+ programme provides a unique opportunity for both students and staff to gain valuable international experience via its opportunities for student and staff mobility exchange within Europe.
Launched in 1987, the Erasmus Programme (European Region Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is among the most popular EU programmes in education and training. During its first year, only 3,244 students went abroad and the programme involved only 11 countries — Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and United Kingdom. Since then it has provided European students with the opportunity to experience student life in one of the 27 EU member states, 6 third countries associated to the programme, and in over 150 third countries not associated to the programme, including Israel, and what started as a student exchange programme has grown into something much bigger, enriching the lives of more than 10 million direct participants.
The 2021-2027 Erasmus+ programme places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions, and in promoting young people’s participation in democratic life. It offers mobility and cooperation opportunities in Higher Education and each year, more than 300,000 students study or train under the Erasmus+ umbrella.
Tel-Hai College participates in both Key Action 1 and Key action 2 activities, which include the mobility of staff and students and capacity building projects.
