EU ERASMUS + program
Erasmus+ is the European Union's Programme to support projects, partnerships, events and mobility in the areas of education, training, youth and sport. It provides funding opportunities for cooperation in all these areas, both among European countries (so called Programme Countries), and between these European countries and Partner Countries throughout the world.
Erasmus+ provides four main opportunities for higher education institutions and individuals from Kazakhstan:
Key Action 1
Key Action 2
KazGASA works in two directions:
What is ICM?
A limited period of study or traineeship abroad (in the framework of ongoing studies at a home institution) for which credits are obtained.
From 3 to 12 months.
Kazakh students coming to Europe may receive a monthly contribution to their expenses abroad of between EUR 800 and EUR 900, depending on the cost of living in the host country, plus a travel contribution based on the distance from the sending to the receiving institution.
The mobility is possible at bachelor, master or doctorate level. To study abroad with Erasmus+, you must be registered in a higher education institution and enrolled in studies leading to a recognised degree. Your home institution and the receiving institution must have an Erasmus+ inter-institutional agreement. Your period of study abroad must be relevant for your degree-related learning, and be part of the study programme that you are following. You should go through selection process according to criteria developed by partner universities.
Before the study abroad period you, your sending and receiving higher education institutions must sign a Learning Agreement for Studies to ensure a transparent and efficient preparation of the exchange abroad, as well as to agree on how activities successfully completed abroad will be recognised.

2.CAPACITY BUILDING IN HIGHER EDUCATION
Within the framework of Erasmus+ CBHE the European Union supports the projects aimed at achieving long-term impact on universities and HE systems in the Partner Countries.
There are two types of capacity-building projects in higher education: Joint Projects and Structural Projects.
Joint Projects aimed at producing outcomes that benefit principally and directly the organisations from eligible Partner Countries involved in the project. These projects typically focus on three different categories of activities:
modernisation of governance, management and functioning of HEIs;
strengthening of relations between HEIs and the wider economic and social environment.
Structural Projects: aimed at producing an impact on higher education systems and promoting reforms at national and/or regional level in the eligible Partner Countries. A mandatory condition for the implementation of structural projects is involvement of national authorities. These projects typically focus on two different categories of activities:
modernisation of policies, governance and management of higher education systems;
strengthening of relations between higher education systems and the wider economic and social environment.
The projects must clearly address the national/regional priorities defined for the Partner Countries in each category.
