Erasmus+ is the European programme for education, training, youth and sport. It promotes the mobility of both students and faculty members, as well as all personnel working in higher education institutions. It specifically aims to improve employability by developing the skills of all concerned, to support innovation and to develop the international dimension of educational establishments.
Erasmus+ is accessible to students of Groupe Sup de Co La Rochelle, as well as to students from our partner institutions. Groupe Sup de Co La Rochelle is a signatory of the Erasmus+ 2014-2020 Charter, which enables students not only to study on an exchange programme but also to benefit from an associated grant.
