AESOP Plus stands for A European and South African Partnership on Heritage and Past and is a project funded by the European Union, within the framework of the Erasmus Mundus Partnership Programme.
AESOP Plus is a collaborative network composed of 21 South African and European universities, as well as six associated partners. AESOP strives to promote South African national heritage as a vector for sustainable partnerships with Europe.
For the second consecutive academic cycle, the University of Pretoria is associated with the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship Programme, via the AESOP Plus.
The expertise and capabilities of teachers, students and researchers to assimilate new technical developments will certainly derive from these partnerships. AESOP Plus organises 250 mobilities for Masters and PhD students, as well as academic staff, encouraging newcomers in a variety of fields, including sciences and humanities, in order to meet employment needs. AESOP Plus is supported by the Erasmus Mundus programme of the European Union.
