Welcome to AREAS

AREAS+ (Academic Relations between Europe and ASia) is an Erasmus Mundus Action 2 project funded by the European Commission and organized by a Partnership of some the most prestigious universities in Europe and these targeted South-Eastern Asian countries: Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, The Philippines, Vietnam.

AREAS allows you to live an invaluable experience by undertaking a study or research period in Europe or in South east Asia. It is open to undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and post-doctoral students and scholars and to staff. The project and the scholarships are financed by the European Commission through the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 – Strand 1 programme. 

AREAS has been selected for funding by the European Commission in 2011 and has provided mobility scholarships to 100 Asian individuals in the years between 2012 and 2015.

AREAS+, a new edition of AREAS, has been selected in 2013 and will finance mobilities in the period 2014-2017. AREAS+ will allow for mobilities both to Asian and European individuals.

Don’t miss your opportunity to apply and live an enriching experience on both a personal and a professional point of view!
