Do you know what the Erasmus plus mobility programme is and how it works? Here you will find information about Erasmus plus and how you can apply for it.
More and more students decide to study a foreign language or do an internship abroad. These students have the possibility to profit from a European Grant (EU citizens only) when they decide to go on a work placement or to study in another EU country. However, the Erasmus plus programme also helps high school students and elderly to develop their knowledge.
The Erasmus Plus is a European grant program which gives people, regardless of their ethnicity or age, the possibility to develop their learning process (Erasmus, 2015). The EU believes that by funding these activities the European economy will grow, which eventually leads to a more attractive “knowledgeable economy” in the world (Erasmus, 2015).
Therefore, the number of high school trips to a foreign country is increasing each year. Thanks to the Erasmus Plus Comenius Program many high schools give their students the opportunity to do an internship abroad for a week or to follow an intensive language course in a group with the purpose to develop their language skills. Language schools accredited such as OnSpain in Malaga can give high schools and universities these opportunities. For example, OnSpain School can plan a whole week with cultural activities, intensive courses for groups and, to give it a Spanish touch, it is also possible to stay at a Spanish host-family.
In case of the university, the Erasmus+ Grant can be used for Erasmus students to finance their work placement or study in another country. Nonetheless, there are intermediaries that can help these students in exchange for a small amount. OnSpain School for example helps students to look for the perfect traineeship that is related to the student’s study. Also, for the students whom are going to study in Spain and like to prepare themselves for the Spanish language, OnSpain offers these students various courses to improve their Spanish.

Below you will find the steps in detail on how to receive an Erasmus+ grant (note: These steps are for Erasmus students.
