A4U Scholarship

Alianza 4 Universidades (A4U) has secured more Erasmus+ funding for exchange with Indonesian partner universities in 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 academic years.

These funds will help continue student and staff exchange between 4 universities members of A4U (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona) and 7 Indonesian partner universities: Universitas Indonesia, Institute of Technology of Bandung, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Universitas Airlangga, BINUS University, Telkom University, and Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta.

Since 2018 A4U has been able to fund the exchange of 40 Indonesian and Spanish staff and students, and 6 more are being planned for the next two academic year thanks to the new funding. As a result of the exchange, students improve their language and inter-cultural skills, increase their confidence and gain international experience that counts towards their qualification. A research stay abroad can help doctoral students jumpstart their career. Staff also benefit from exchange as they share best practice and have a chance to have a first-hand experience of a different educational system. Through Erasmus+ programme participating universities have opportunities to forge cooperation in teaching and research, attract talent and increase the number of international students and staff, which in turn contribute to their diversity and internationalisation.

In the current circumstances of the global COVID-19 pandemic Erasmus+ exchange  continues taking place as and when health and travel restrictions in the sending and receiving countries allow for it.
