Erasmus+  for Higher Education is part of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and its aim is to promote cooperation between European institutions of higher education as well as student-, teacher- and expert exchange between the institutions. The programme also promotes cooperation and mobility between institutions of higher education and the working life (e.g. internship exchanges). 

At JAMK, Erasmus+ is one of the focal exchange programmes as well as sources of funding for mobility. Every year JAMK sends out and receives hundreds of Erasmus+ exchange students. Teacher and staff mobility includes teaching and other assignments in countries which participate in the Erasmus+ programme.

Results of Erasmus+ mobility at JAMK

In the Erasmus+ programme we are among the most funded higher education institutions in Finland. Furthermore, we have been recognised for our successful execution of the programme by the Finnish National Agency EDUFI and the European commission.

In recent years especially our Erasmus+ staff mobility has notably increased thanks to our active campaigning. Consequently, this success story was released in the publication of the European Commission Supporting reform: the role of Erasmus in higher education in late 2013. We were also awarded with Erasmus Golden Award for Excellence 2013, first place in quality and staff mobility in Europe.

The National Erasmus Agency EDUFI made a follow-up visit to JAMK related to the implementation of the Erasmus+ programme. The results were very positive: we got good feedback on e.g. the transparency of the mobility processes, number of students and staff participating in the programme, managing the funding and in overall the successful implementation of the programme.
