Erasmus+ is an educational collaboration between EU countries, EEA countries (Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein), and Turkey. Through the mobility program Erasmus+, you can participate in study or traineeship stays in an EU or EEA country.

The University of Stavanger has entered into several Erasmus+ agreements with multiple countries and universities in most European countries. Each agreement belongs to the respective department and offers courses for students enrolled in programs at that specific department.
