Erasmus+ Study Mobility (Europe)

The Erasmus programme (EuRopean Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is a programme for the exchange of students and teachers between universities, European “grandes écoles” and educational establishments in Europe.

Many countries participate in this exchange programme, including: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom?


To be eligible to apply for ERASMUS study mobility, the student must, at the time of application :

  • be registered at Paris Diderot or Paris Descartes as part of a national degree (in the case of a co-qualifying degree, administrative registration must be made at the university)
  • have validated the 1st year of the bachelor’s degree: this is why students who want to leave during their L2 will only be able to leave during the second semester (S4).
  • all students regularly enrolled at the university are eligible regardless of their nationality.
  • international students (outside Europe) must have a valid residence permit for the entire duration of their mobility.
