Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) is a new action in the European Erasmus cooperation and allows for student exchange from countries outside the European Union to European universities with an Erasmus Charter.  Erasmus+ now offers opportunities for students to study and staff to teach or train in higher education institutions (HEIs) beyond Europe. It also makes the same opportunities available for staff and students from countries beyond Europe to come to participating HEIs in Europe. The Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STU) has received grant for mobilities  with 6 universities in partner countries: Sri Lanka, China, Cuba, Kazakhstan, Russian Federation and Montenegro.
