Erasmus+ is a program of the European Union for education, training, youth and sport for the period of 2014-2020.

The Erasmus+ program covers all European and international programs and initiatives of the EU in the areas of education, training, youth and sport. Erasmus+ has replaced seven earlier programs: the Lifelong Learning Program (with Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig subprogrammes), Youth in Action and 5 international cooperation programs (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the Program of Cooperation with Industrialized Countries and Territories). This program introduces the field of sport for the first time.

Erasmus+ is aimed at strengthening the knowledge, skills and employability of European citizens as well as improving education, training and work in the fields of youth and sport. The seven-year program will have a budget of 14.7 billion Euros, an increase of as much as 40 percent compared to existing program budgets.

Erasmus+ consists of the following actions:

  • Key Action 1 – Learning mobility of Individuals
  • Key Action 2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices
  • Key Action 3 – Support to policy reform
  • Action Jean Monnet
  • Sport

The Arts Academy has signed inter-institutional cooperation agreements through the Erasmus+ program with numerous art institutions in Europe, and that number grows day by day.

Erasmus Mundus

Erasmus Mundus is a program of the European Union, the main objective of which is to raise the quality of higher education and to promote international dialogue through mobility and academic cooperation.

The Arts Academy is participating in project SUNBEAM – Structured UNiversity mobility between the Balkans and Europe for the Adriatic-ionian Macroregion within which significant exchanges of students and staff with universities in the region have been realized.


CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies) is a Central European exchange program for university studies designed as a regional program of academic mobility. The Central European exchange program commenced with its implementation on December 1, 1994, after the CEEPUS Program Agreement was established in Budapest in 1993. Croatia signed CEEPUS in 1995, and along with Croatia, the program traditionally includes the following countries: Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Serbia. In the academic year 2009/2010 Pristina University in Pristina also joined the program, and in the academic year 2011/2012 so did Moldova.

The CEEPUS program primarily aims to promote mobility within the CEEPUS network. The CEEPUS network consists of at least three members from at least two CEEPUS member states, with one member having the role of network coordinator. In practice, the number of members within the network is much higher. Coordinators and partners may be higher education institutions and their constituents. Apart from mobility through networks, CEEPUS is also able to achieve mobility outside the network (freelancers or freemovers).

The Arts Academy is currently participating in three CEEPUS networks:

  • New Cooperation Initiatives in the Central European Professional Music Training (Music Department)
  • L.I.C.E.  (Design of Visual Communication Department)
  • CE (Film and Video Department)
