What is Erasmus?
The Erasmus program was created by the European Union in 1887 and supports the cooperation of universities within the EU and other European countries (Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Turkey and parts of Switzerland). Furthermore, it enables a huge number of students and lectures to study at a university in another european country. They are also given the chance to get to know the culture, language and way of life of the host country. To recognize their achievements for this period, the students are given credits by the European Credit Transfer Systems (ECTS). All Erasmus students are awarded a monthly grant by the European Commission during their stay abroad. For more information about Erasmus and offers of particular Erasmus studies please ask the international students’ office, Erasmus coordinator or participated universities:
