Are you a school, college, university or other educational institution that’s Interested in discovering what your Erasmus+ project could look like? Then read on, because at TravelEdventures that’s what we specialise in and we’ve got all the information right here.

The goal of any Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme placement abroad is to gain international knowledge and work experience. This could be an internship or a training programme for your students (and your teachers too, who also go along with your students).

What’s the Duration of an Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme Project?

A normal projects take anything from 2 to 12 weeks. If you want to know our recommendation, we’d say that your first project should last between 2 to 4 weeks, which is most common for educational institutions just starting out with Erasmus+ or The Turing Scheme.

How Many Students Should I send On My First Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme Placement?

We suggest sending 20 to 30 students to start out (you can increase your student numbers as you become more experienced in Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme programmes). We’d also recommend keeping your first group together in the same destination. It’s easier for you to handle and we can be there right by your side, with group leaders from TravelEdventures on the ground with you.

As a general rule of thumb, an application can be anything from 1% to 3% of your total student population to help you work it out.

How Much Funding Can I Expect?

Typical funding anything between 50 and 100 000 Euros for the first year which we can help you fundraise
