Erasmus+, a new EU program in the area of education, training, youth and sport,is scheduled to be implemented from 2014 to 2020. Erasmus+ gives students an opportunity to study for a period of 3 to 12 months at a university or higher education institution in another participating country with in the framework of arrangements between the universities. Erasmus+  is the result of the integration of the following European programs: Lifelong Learning (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius, Grundtvig), Youth in Action and international cooperation programs (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and programs of cooperation with industrialized countries in the field of higher education). This 7- year program will have a budget of 14.7 billion euro- a 40% increase compared to the previous programs, which Erasmus + incorporates.
