Erasmus + Information & Policy Statement

"... The University of Reading is committed to the internationalisation and mobility of its staff and students. The University's Global Engagement Strategy has set an ambitious outward student mobility target of 20% by 2020 and to grow to 1/3rd of all UK based undergraduates by 2026 (the University's centenary year).

Erasmus+ is a vital component of our outward mobility strategy - not just for our modern language disciplines, but for a range of disciplines which utilise and benefit from the University's Erasmus+ network of partners across the continent of Europe, and beyond.

Reading is committed to encouraging and supporting both students and staff to gain an international experience as part of the Erasmus+ programme..."
