    There is no doubt that Erasmus+ offers an excellent range of opportunities for students and staff to broaden their international experience. Key Action 1, in particular, provides a fantastic variety of flexible activities, leading to useful and diverse outcomes. In particular, University College London (UCL) has welcomed the improved support for students from lower socio-economic backgrounds and is pleased to see that their participation has risen steadily, albeit gently, over the past few years. The Online Linguistic Support tool is another great innovation, supporting language learning for student participants prior to and during mobility; often a key concern of British students considering studying abroad.

    Erasmus+ as the successor of the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) brings a major contribution to universities like the Deggendorf Institute of Technology and has improved the implementation of activities in the areas of education, training, youth, language and sports. The merging of different LLP sub-programmes and the structuring into three basic Key Actions has further streamlined the European Commission’s education policy.
