The Erasmus+ programme offers mobility opportunities to students as well as staff, and also provides funding for cooperation projects between institutions.

The University of Bordeaux's international ambition in terms of international cooperation is recognised by partners worldwide, and in recent years many projects have been developed thanks to European funding.

ENLIGHT, the European university alliance, of which the University of Bordeaux is co-coordinator, provides a new incentive to continue the development of internationalisation, and offers real opportunities for creating new international partnerships. 

The Erasmus+ programme is one of the tools serving that strategy. It provides support for transnational collaborative projects, through calls for projects published on a yearly basis with the following objectives:

  • develop programmes of excellence in Europe
  • promote the skills of tomorrow, innovate in teaching practices, renew training models, in step with the rise of digital technology, sustainable development and societal issues
  • address the skills deficit or the need to update skills in target sectors
  • contribute to modernising higher education and to the challenges of internationalisation
