For the inter-European share of the Erasmus programme, the university has received more than twice the number of grants for teacher exchanges, from 30 to 70, and for staff training, from 42 to 100. The university also expects a sharp increase in the number of Erasmus traineeships, from 150 grants in previous allocations, to 250 grants for the 2018/19 academic year. This also applies to the number of exchange students and the number of allocated grants for Erasmus studies, from 415 in the previous distribution to 650.

The International Office at Uppsala University carries out special initiatives to market these opportunities to staff and students. For university employees, there are also excellent opportunities to be awarded a grant for staff training/skills development abroad. The increase in the number of grants for traineeships means more students can carry out traineeships abroad and thus gain work experience and contacts on the European labour market – which leads to improved employability.

The general statistics for Erasmus traineeships show that one third of all trainees are offered a job with the traineeship coordinator. An important key for internationalisation at Uppsala University is to work to get more students, teachers and staff to participate in exchanges in other countries. It is just as important for internationalisation efforts to accept students, teachers and staff who are carrying out exchanges at Uppsala University.

The EU-funded Erasmus programme is therefore unique in its scope and facilitates exchanges via grants. For more information about these grants or the Erasmus+ programme, contact the International Office at
