Budapest Erasmus • Eu Student Exchange Programme
Budapest Erasmus programme is part of the Eu Student Exchange Programme that was established in 1987, and offers university students a possibility of studying or working in another European country for a period of at least 3 months and maximum 12 months.
The name of the project refers to Dutch Renaissance humanist and theologian Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam. He studied at diverse European universities and described the education as a chance for modern people.
Besides, the Erasmus programme is dedicated for professors and universities’ staff as well. The programme is open to 33 countries: Member States of the European Union and EU candidate countries.
BUDAPEST ERASMUS HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each student receives a grant which covers partly the costs of the stay abroad. Students going on exchange under the Budapest Erasmus programme do not pay any university fees in the hosting/partner university. All rights and obligations of exchange students are described in the Erasmus Student Charter. One of the basic rights each exchange student has is the full recognition of courses passed successfully abroad by the home university.
Before leaving, the participating student signs the Learning Agreement – a document that describes the programme of studies followed in the host university. At the end of the stay the host university should prepare for the student a document called the Transcript of Records that confirms the completed studies’ program and the results. In addition, students can improve their language skills by participating in one of the Erasmus Intensive Language Courses offered at the host university.
WHERE TO FIND MORE INFO?
More detailed information on the Erasmus Programme is available at the European Commission’s website. For information how to apply and on universities where you can do your excahnge, please contact the International Relations Office of your university. ESN sections can also be a valuable source of information and advice concerning your study abroad period.
