On the 20th of September, the Commission launched the new Erasmus+ application, marking a new milestone in the digitalisation of the Erasmus+ programme. The new application, available in all EU languages, will provide a digital European Student Card to each student, valid all across the European Union. The future is digital, and this renewed app will make sure students are going even more paperless.

Thanks to the new app, which works on Android and iOS systems, students will be able to:

  • Browse and select their destination among their university’s partners;
  • Sign their online learning agreement;
  • Discover events and useful tips about their destination, and get in touch with other students; and,
  • Obtain their European Student Card to get access to services, museums, cultural activities and special deals in their host university and country.

In line with the Digital Education Action Plan, the new Erasmus+ programme for the period 2021-2027 supports the development of digital skills and contributes to the digital transition of European education systems. With an increased budget of over €28 billion for the 7-year period, Erasmus+ will also support the resilience of education and training systems in the face of the pandemic.
