EU-funded opportunities for students and vocational trainees
Nationals of St. Helena should not miss out on applying for funding under the European Commission’s ERASMUS + programme. It gives the opportunity to academic students to spend either 3 to 12 months – or 2-12 months in the case of vocational trainees – in another EU country. The programme is enhancing the knowledge, creativity and skills of tomorrow’s innovators.
Eligible students must already be studying at a recognised higher education institute, or pursuing a vocational course in the EU. Successful applicants receive a small monthly stipend towards living costs and travel expenses, as well as some language training.
Applications must be made by the high education establishment where the individual is registered, via the national bodies in EU member states running the programme.
