Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport which runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020. It includes numerous exchanges of students and teachers among higher education institutions throughout Europe. Erasmus+ aims to promote sustainable development of higher education, and provides numerous opportunities and support for organisations and individuals.
The Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (LMTA) joined Erasmus programme in academic year 1999/2000. Partnership has been developed during the years, and recent number of partnerships include more than 140 higher art education institutions across the Europe.
Prioritized Erasmus activity is student and staff mobility. Erasmus students for study or training are accepted at each of the three LMTA study cycles.
Staff benefits from Erasmus programme by taking a teaching visit at one of the numerous partner institutions, or training visit at one of the institutions registered in Europe. Staff mobility ensures internationalsation of studies (mobility at home), and is aimed at development of teaching and learning.
