  • We are seeing reports of actual and projected shifts in student mobility in response to dramatic (i.e., 30% or more) changes in currency exchange rates
  • Two recent examples are Canada, which is expected to attract more American students in 2016/17, and Russia, which anticipates continued enrolment growth from European and Asian markets in 2016
  • Both destinations have seen their currencies fall off by about 30% against the US dollar

Erasmus+ participation doubles in 2014; boosts youth employment

Short on time? Here are the highlights:

  • Under an expanded funding formula, participation in the Erasmus+ European student mobility programme more than doubled in 2014
  • 500,000 students and 150,000 educators received funding for training, study, and volunteering abroad that year
  • The programme has been shown to have significant effects on the employability of participants
  • This is especially true for programme alumni in Eastern Europe, whose risk of long-term unemployment was reduced by 83%, and Southern Europe, where mobile students were half as likely to experience long-term unemployment
