Erasmus + is the European Commission’s flagship educational and training programme for higher education students, teachers and institutions. It was introduced to increase student mobility within Europe to enable them to study or do a traineeship abroad. Over the past years ERASMUS + has flourished throughout its development, evolving through different phrases, and now it also supports individuals in higher education and companies interested in lecturing in a university in another country.

ERASMUS + EXCHANGE PROGRAMME FOR STUDENTS AND STAFF
Erasmus + (duration period is 2014-2020, the last year is 2020/2021 academic year) encourages student and staff mobility for work and study, and promotes trans-national co-operation projects among universities across Europe. Undergraduate students, graduate students, academic staff and administrative staff can all participate.
Experience abroad contributes to enriching students’ academic knowledge and professional competences, support their personal development, forges a common European identity and also makes mobility of young people during their lifetime real, which is a central part of the programme. Learning abroad equips individuals with a range of competences, including language skills, which are increasingly valued by employers. Erasmus + also benefits students who do traineeships in companies. By temporarily working in a company abroad students gain a better understanding of other economies as well as the chance to develop specific skills. Erasmus + also funds intensive programmes, which bring together teachers and students from different EU higher education institution. These short study programmes encourage the multinational learning of specialist subjects and provide students with access to academic knowledge which is not available in a single one institution.
The University of Economics and Innovation in Lublin currently operate the ECTS credit system. Each Erasmus + student receives a transcript of records at the end of their stay presenting the courses they have studied, including all exam results, and their ECTS equivalents.

It is important to have an up to date information about the Learning Agreement to ensure your course of study is sufficient for your home institution to award you the correct number of credits for your time with us.
