Erasmus+ is the EU programme that supports education, training, youth and sport in Europe.
Erasmus+ has opportunities for people of all ages, helping them to develop, as well as share knowledge and experience at institutions and organisations in different countries.
Erasmus+ has opportunities for a wide range of organisations, including universities, education and training providers, think-tanks, research organisations, and private businesses.
Latest updates regarding the COVID-19 situation in Slovenia
The Euro-Mediterranean University is closely following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting disruption of social activities, travel and mobility. In this regard, our main priority is the safety of our students, staff and partners.
If you are planning to visit Slovenia and EMUNI University in the following months, please familiarise yourself with the current status of COVID-19 in Slovenia via the official link of the National Institute of Public Health web page (for access, click here).
The aim of Erasmus+ is to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, as well as the aims of ET2020, the EU’s strategic framework for education and training.
Erasmus+ also aims to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy.
Specific issues tackled by the programme include:
- Reducing unemployment, especially among young people
- Promoting adult learning, especially for new skills and those required by the labour market.
- Encouraging young people to take part in European democracy
- Supporting innovation, cooperation and reform
- Reducing early school leaving
- Promoting cooperation and mobility with EU partner countries
Learning mobility opportunities aim to encourage the mobility of students, staff, trainees, apprentices, youth workers and young people. The role of the organisations in this process is to coordinate these opportunities for individuals. The benefits for the organisations include an increased capacity to operate at an international level, improved management skills, access to more funding opportunities and projects, increased ability to prepare, manage, and follow-up projects, a more attractive portfolio of opportunities for students and staff at participating organisations, and finally, the opportunity to develop innovative projects with partners from around the world.
Student mobility can be in any subject area/academic discipline. To ensure high-quality mobility activities with maximum impact on the students, the mobility activity has to be compatible with the student’s degree-related learning and personal development needs.
Students may carry out either one or a combination of the activities described below:
A study period abroad at a partner higher education institution (HEI): The study period abroad must be part of the student’s study programme to complete a degree with a short cycle, first cycle (Bachelor or equivalent), second cycle (Masters or equivalent) and third or doctoral cycle.
A study period abroad may include a traineeship period as well. Such a combination creates synergies between the academic and professional experience and may be organised in different ways depending on the context: either one activity after the other or both at the same time. The combination follows the funding rules and minimum duration of study mobility.
A traineeship: (work placement) abroad in an enterprise or any other relevant workplace. This includes Digital Opportunity Traineeships for students and recent graduates to further develop or acquire digital skills. Traineeships abroad at a workplace are supported during short cycle, first, second, third cycle studies and, in the case of mobility in Programme Countries, within a maximum of one year following the student’s graduation. This also includes the ‘assistantships’ for student teachers.
Wherever possible, the traineeships should be an integrated part of the student’s study programme.
Teaching periods: this activity allows HEI teaching staff or staff from enterprises to teach at a partner HEI abroad. Staff mobility for teaching can be in any subject area/academic discipline.
Training periods: this activity supports the professional development of HEI teaching and non-teaching staff, as well as the development of involved institutions. It may take the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences) and job shadowing/observation periods/training at a partner HEI, or at another relevant organisation abroad. A period abroad can combine teaching and training activities.
In the grant allocation for mobility of staff between Programme Countries, emphasis will be put on training periods for HEI teaching staff that allow them to develop pedagogical and curriculum design skills.
The Euro-Mediterranean University (EMUNI) was granted the Erasmus+ Mobility project (20-107-075742) (accreditation n° KA1-IHE-8/20) with Mediterranean Partner Countries. The aims are increased mobilities, project-based activities and common study programmes (along with other study activities such as summer schools, training events, and publishing). EMUNI`s mission is to contribute towards the harmonisation of higher education in the Mediterranean region by transferring knowledge and good practices of the Bologna process. Likewise, EMUNI serves as a channel for a better understanding of the Southern Mediterranean dimension of higher education.

Erasmus+ Higher Education Student and Staff Mobility in Programme Countries
The Euro-Mediterranean University (EMUNI) was granted a Erasmus+ Mobility project (2021-1-SI01-KA131_HED-000005096) for Students and Staff in Programme Countries. The Erasmus+ programme for the period 2021-2027 supports, even more than its predecessor, the
take-up of digital technologies, innovative and open pedagogies in education and training. The
programme is also designed to reach out to a larger and more diverse group of students and staff in
higher education, for example by a greater use of information, communication and technology tools,
as well as a combined use of physical mobility, online learning and cooperation. Ultimately, this shall
lead to the development and improvement of digital skills and competences of students, teaching and
administrative staff participating in the programme.

Admission for Erasmus+ Students
EMUNI University is open to all students who find their programme compatible with our programmes to spend one or two semesters with us as Erasmus+ exchange students. Priority will be given to students from the universities that we have signed bilateral agreements with; however, new partnerships with new universities are highly encouraged.
How to apply
Please contact your university’s Erasmus coordinator or international office to find out if you are eligible for exchange to EMUNI University. You must apply through your home university, and the procedures and deadlines will vary according to each institution.
If your home institution decides that you are eligible for an Erasmus+ student exchange, then the institution should contact the EMUNI Erasmus Office at email@example.com for further communication.

If you wish to conduct an Erasmus+ traineeship at EMUNI University, we advise your home institution international office or Erasmus+ coordinator to contact us well in advance of the planned exchange in order to jointly look for opportunities in the sector of public or/and the international relations department.
Erasmus+ students who wish to follow courses that are not included in the agreement they apply through must ensure their home institution will recognize such courses as part of their degree. The students must also contact the department/faculty they are applying to, to ensure they are permitted to follow courses at other departments/faculties. If permission is granted, that department/faculty will facilitate contact between the student and the home department/faculty.
