This article explores the lived experiences of five nursing students who participated in the Erasmus+ programme, an initiative – funded by the European Union – which aims to support projects that enhance, modernise and innovate education and training in Europe. The project discussed here focused on meeting the needs of children and young people with complex intellectual and developmental disabilities. The students, from across Europe, were from a variety of disciplines, including nursing, education and social education.
