The Erasmus+ Program is the flagship of the European Union’s Education Programs to encourage students’ cross-border mobility within Europe. The objective of the Program is to cultivate a pan-European approach to Higher Education with the aim of promoting innovation in Europe and creating a European Higher Education Area.
Mobility of students to other countries and exposure to other cultures not only enriches their student experience, but also prepares them for a world of employment that requires flexibility and adaptability, strengthening Europe’s workforce.
Support offered to incoming Erasmus+ students
Incoming Erasmus+ students are supported in many different ways, including but not limited to a combination of the following:

- Additional readings, bibliography and support materials in English
- Assignments and written and/or oral tests in English to assess the student in the selected course(s)
