How do I choose between the distinct programmes in Erasmus+?
In choosing a programme, you must first know what your goals are, what career path you are trying to make, and what you intend to do with the knowledge that you will gain from the programme. For example, if you are solely interested in gaining practical knowledge, you may not need to pursue a full degree. Instead, you may be more interested in applying for an Erasmus+ internship programme. Have a look at all the possible options through this link! It will help you in your decision-making process.

If the programme you are going to take falls under the Erasmus+ scheme, then you may be able to get funding. Even if it is not under the Erasmus Mundus component, you may still qualify for a Master's loan under Erasmus+. For more information click here.
