The Erasmus Programme is an EU student exchange programme which gives you the opportunity to go on an exchange period of 3 - 12 months at one of our partner Universities. There are currently more than 4,000 higher institutions participating in across the 33 countries involved. With over 2.2 million students having already taken part the Erasmus Programme has become a cultural phenomenon and is very popular among European students. The programme fosters not only learning and understanding of the host country, but also a sense of community among students from different countries. The Erasmus experience is considered both a time for learning as well as a chance to socialize.
It is seen as a great opportunity to study abroad while not having the expense of studying outside the European Union as the grant available to Erasmus students are not available to those opting to leave the continent to study.
