Find your Trust and Identity solution
Get online with eduroam
eduroam is the global WiFi roaming service for research and education communities. Available in tens of thousands of locations across 100+ territories around the world, eduroam's secure encryption is used over 4 billion times per year to authenticate students, researchers and staff while they travel for study, work or leisure. Contact your university or other home institution to find out if eduroam is available for you.
Participate in Erasmus+
If your home institution is eligible to participate in the EU's Erasmus+ programme, you may be eligible to study or work abroad as part of its mobility programme. As the Erasmus+ tools have become increasingly digitised, our Trust and Identity solutions have made them easier to use, supporting wider participation in the programme. Contact your institution IT manager or International Relations Officer to enquire.
Access online services, wherever they are
Your home institution may provide online services as well as digital identities. If your institution is connected to your national research and education identity federation, a wider range of services may be available to you. Contact your institution IT manager to enquire.
