The ERASMUS is the most widely known higher education student exchange programme worldwide. Since it’s launch over 23 years ago, more than one million students have benefited from the experience of studying in a foreign country.
The ERASMUS programme involves 2000 education institutions in 31 countries, or 90% of the European higher education institutions. In addition to the role it plays in teaching, the ERASMUS programme is now a truly social and cultural phenomenon, creating thus an open mindedness never before seen. In addition, it creates tolerant spirits and promotes inter-cultural dialogue among European youngsters.
How to apply?
The ERASMUS programme allows students to carry out one semester or a year of studies in the European universities involved in the Programme.
To apply to the ERASMUS Programme, students should be enrolled on the 2nd cycle at IST.
The ERASMUS programme offers a number of Mobility Scholarships. Nevertheless, as often happens, it is possible for an ERASMUS student to carry out his/her mobility programme without having been awarded a scholarship.
The number of scholarships awarded on an annually basis hinges on EU budgetary availability. At national level, these scholarships are awarded by the Education Ministry via National Agency and managed by the Rectory of the Technical University of Lisbon.
The scholarships are awarded through a selection process carried out by the ERASMUS Scientific Coordinator for each curricular programme.
The scholarships awarded to ERASMUS students are aimed at covering current expenses arising from mobility itself and do not contemplate the usual everyday expenses that a student would normally have at the home university. For instance, the scholarships awarded are, on average about, 250€/month.
Online application - you must apply in FÉNIX, click on “portal do estudante”, then on “Participar” and finally on “mobilidade”. You can choose up to 5 universities.
