Student Mobility

Are you interested in studying or working in another EU country? Would you like to learn a new language? Do you want to improve your employability skills? Does it interest you to experience different cultures?

Well then the Erasmus programme is available to help you. It provides funding for students to participate either in a Student Mobility Study (SMS) or a Student Mobility Placement (SMP). The programme gives you the opportunity to study or work in another EU country for a period of between 12 weeks to 52 weeks.

To participate in a SMS you must be a national of a participating country (or recognised by the country where you are resident as refugee, stateless person or permanent resident).

Moreover you have to be registered at a HEI which holds an EUC and enrolled in undergraduate or postgraduate study programme (up to and including doctoral level). The EUC should be available for you to see and read before undergoing an Erasmus study period.

On the other hand to participate in a SMP same rules for SMS are applicable. You can undergo a placement period either at another HEI or at an eligible enterprise (except European Institutions, organisations managing EU programmes or the national diplomatic representation of the student in the host country).

All your rights and obligations are written down in the Erasmus Student Charter which is given to you before leaving for your study period abroad.

In addition, you can improve your language skills by participating in one of the Erasmus Intensive Language Courses (EILCs) offered at host universities.

For all the above you have to apply directly with your HEI.

Maltese Enterprises – give your contribution & check out your benefits!!!

This section is specially designed for Maltese enterprises to post their profile showing interest to host Erasmus Student Placements and for HEIs and students to search for placements.

So if you are an enterprise wishing to host foreign Erasmus Placement Students, you are requested to download the following form, fill it in and send it to All forms will be listed in this section which shall be available for all interested parties.

But after all what are the benefits for enterprises?

  • Increasing the profile of your organization;
  • Cooperating through the continuous dialogue to assume the consequences of the mobility;
  • Offering a pedagogic environment and a constant follow-up of the students;
  • Creating a network of enterprises and universities to debate and meet at European level.

Obviously all this could not happen without your support!
