Erasmus+ Mobile App – mobility support on the go

The European Commission has launched on 13 June the awaited mobile application (App) for Erasmus+, as part of of the Erasmus mobility programme, hosted by the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

The Erasmus+ Mobile App, which is a supportive tool to guide Erasmus+ ‘users’ before, during and after their mobility period, includes the following set of features:

  • Easy tracking of participants’ progress in administrative procedures to be followed ante, during and post mobility experience. The signing of study agreements with both sending and receiving institutions can be completed online, via the App, as well.
  • A ‘Top Tips’ section, where peers can share and vote the best advice on living abroad and integrating in the host environment (general, country-specific and city-specific). A feed for news, local events and activities is also available.
  • Language training is also included, via a direct link to the Erasmus+ Online Linguistics Facility (OLS).

The App is to guide learners and young people through their exchange experience, via a single point of reference, and thus help improve accessibility and inclusiveness of the programme for current and future Erasmus+ generations. It is estimated that the App will support over 4 million mobile individuals by 2020. The App is currently available for iOS and Android. Improvements and updates will be implemented on a continuous basis, ensuring that soon all types of devices could access the App. Updates will also be guided by the changing needs in the evolution of programme.

On the same occasion, the presidents of the European Commission – Jean-Claude Juncker – and of the European Parliament – Antonio Tajani – handed over symbolic awards for the "9 millionth participant" in the Erasmus programme to 33 representatives of the Erasmus+ generation, one from each of the current programme countries. The award ceremony was followed by debates on the future of the Erasmus+ programme after 2020.
