Erasmus Policy Statement


Erasmus Policy Statement

Erasmus (European Region Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is an EU-funded programme that enables students to study and gain work experience. Read our Erasmus policy statement.


Newcastle University's Internationalisation Strategy promotes cross-cultural understanding, engaging staff and students at all levels. 

We have identified a clear commitment to enhancing our alignment with: 

  • the Bologna Process 
  • the European Higher Education Area 
  • ErasmusForAll 
  • Horizon 2020 

We are proud to have participated in the Erasmus Programme since its inception. Our commitment to Europe is exemplified in a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence. 

We work with partners who share our values and vision. We have a large number of research-led partnerships, as part of our aim to carry out research that has a global impact.

Benefits of Erasmus programme

Participation in the Erasmus programme has many benefits to the University, region and Europe. Find out how the Erasmus programme helps with the University's modernisation and internationalisation agenda

International Co-operation Projects

International co-operation projects in teaching and training are central to our wider university strategy. To ensure the success of our projects, we provide specialised support at every stage, from proposal to implementation.

A group of Professional Services staff provide cross-service advice and guidance. This can range from technical support to financial advice, research guidance to information technology. Having this support from the planning stage onwards means that projects run smoothly.

We have developed our templates and approval processes to make sure projects have the resource and institutional support they need. Since committing to Erasmus, we have developed expertise in different EU and international funding schemes. As a result, we run regular workshops across the institution to:

  • highlight funding opportunities
  • communicate best practice
  • develop high-quality applications
