The DU continues to engage in student and pedagogical mobility through the Erasmus+ program, which runs from 2021 to 2027, in accordance with the Erasmus University Charter. ERASMUS+ is EU education program that encourages cooperation and mobility across all sectors of education, training, sport, and youth. It is the successor to programs such as Lifelong Learning, Youth in Action, and others.
The Erasmus+ programme is a transformative learning experience whereby students have the opportunity to further develop their intercultural learning, while also developing personal, academic and professional skills. The programme seeks to modernise education throughout Europe with participants having the option to study (for a period of 3 to 12 months) at eligible higher education institutions in Europe or undertake a traineeship at a host enterprise (for a period of 2 to 12 months).
Considerations when making your decision about Erasmus+
When considering studying abroad, it is important to plan ahead and understand the requirements and processes involved. When considering a particular institute to study in, check the modules listing and ensure that the required modules are taught through English. Consider the financial costs carefully, not just the cost of flights and accommodation, but also the cost of living in the destination country. You should look at the timetable and check the start and end dates of each semester.
Your Erasmus+ Coordinator will be happy to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you might have. If you require any additional information, please contact the rector's office, which will be happy to assist you.
