The MOBILE UP project, coordinated by the University of Porto in the framework of the European Programme Erasmus + – Key Action 1 International Credit Mobility, is aimed to student mobility at various levels as well as academic and administrative staff, in both directions, IN and OUT, and includes institutions from 17 countries from outside Europe.



In order to be eligible for an Erasmus + scholarship under this project, you must be a student/staff from the institution which is a part of the project’s Consortium.

The MOBILE UP project offers grants for exchange mobility. As so, all the students must be registered in an HEI and enrolled in studies leading to a recognized degree or another recognized tertiary level qualification.

For Undergraduate studies:

  • must be enrolled at least in the second year of higher education studies in order to be eligible to undertake an exchange period abroad.

For Master studies:

  • must have completed at least one semester at the home institution before undertaking an exchange period.

For Doctorate studies:

  • must have completed at least one year of studies and have already a research project.

For academic and administrative staff:

  • must work at a partner institution of the project in order to be eligible to apply for a grant.

All applicants must receive the formal support of their home institution, through the issuing of a support letter (this document is mandatory at the application stage).
