Erasmus Overseas Placement Scheme: To Travel Is To Learn

Erasmus Overseas Placement Scheme: To Travel Is To Learn

17 February 2023

Travelling and experiencing new cultures is the best way to learn. We understand and realise the importance of learning through travel, and hence we encourage and support students to take a journey outside the country and get exposure to exotic cultures and workplaces.

The Erasmus Scheme provides funding to UK organisations to unlock life-changing experiences across the world for their students.  Colleges apply for funding for projects on behalf of their students. 

Participating in an Erasmus placement gives our students the chance to develop new skills, gain vital international experience and boost employability.  Students can also develop professional practice, a wide range of soft skills, and language skills. They also build relationships with international peers and gain fresh ideas and a better understanding of other cultures.

RNN Group works with TEEP Ltd which is a company belonging to FMTS Group, leader in the European Project Management sector.  TEEP specialise in connecting organisations with EU funds for educational, vocational and training purposes.  They are involved in both outgoing and Incoming mobility projects in the UK.  They deal with logistical planning, accommodation, matching with host companies, tutoring and monitoring for the entire mobility period, Transfer from destination airport to accommodation, accommodation, restaurants, travelcards and the online language course. 

From March through to June 2023, RNN Group is sending 110 students on 6 mobilities to Italy, Belgium and Malta.  This is open to L3 students from the following areas:
