What is Erasmus?

The European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students (Erasmus) is an educational programme created by the European Commission in 1987. It aims to promote students’ mobility within the European Community and to develop a “European dimension” within partner institutions and their academic programmes.

Erasmus study is fully recognised by the home institution as part of the degree. Students will receive recognition of their studies through the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

Benefits of Erasmus

  • Employability: Erasmus students prove to have qualities that employers look for, such as an ability to take on challenges, adapt easily to new environments and to be flexible.
  • New experience: This is an opportunity for adventurous students who want to create a competitive advantage for themselves, have lots of fun, meet interesting people and gain new skills.
  • Maturity: Managing a life in another culture builds students’ confidence and independence.
