An educational programme under the Lifelong Learning Programme of the EU
Erasmus of Rotterdam (1465 or 1469 - 1536), son of a priest and his housekeeper, was a sophisticated scholar, major humanist, pacifist, theologian, philologist and teacher, living and working in the Netherlands, France, Italy, England, Switzerland and Germany.
A programme of the European Union, addressing to students and teachers in tertiary education (universities, colleges, conservatoires) is named after this outstanding European personality.
Under this program, students can study between 3 and 12 months at one of our partner institutions. By the use of ECTS as well as the conclusion of a learning agreement in advance the student can be guaranteed the full credit of all exams which will be passed abroad. So no loss of time for the entire duration of the study is to be feared.
Teachers can use this programme for offering a workshop at a partner institution or for their own training (- further information on Outgoing).
