The Consortium

The Erasmus Al Sud Consortium emerged in 2012 as an initiative of 5 higher education institutions to send and receive mobility students for internships, and set up partnerships with the national businesses.

Erasmus +

The Erasmus Al Sud Consortium, adapting to the new opportunities created by the Erasmus+ Programme, promotes the mobility of students and recent graduates from partner institutions, to carry out periods of study and internships abroad.

Al Sud Students

Around 1000 students benefited from this Consortium and nearly 700 students had the chance to undertake an Erasmus internship. The remaining students carried out a mobility for studies.


Information sessions

Staff Training Weeks

Project meetings

To ease the work of the Erasmus Al Sud Consortium, the partner institutions hold regular meetings.


Its mission is to promote a strong, lasting and fruitful connection between the higher and polytechnic institutions and the strengthening of the relations between national and European higher education institutions, and between these and the national business network.

Lauro Pinto, Master’s degree student in Human Resources Management – University of Évora

Two years ago, I was about to finish my master’s degree in Human Resources Management at the University of Évora.
With a shortage of job offers at the time, and the growing need to develop my personal and intellectual skills, the idea of an internship abroad seemed like the right challenge at the right time. Having chosen the country (Austria) and registered for the scholarship application, it was only a matter of time for the process to be successful. The Al Sud Consortium scholarship was on its way!
