The Erasmus Programme (European Region Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is the exchange programme of the European Union established in 1987. The programme is named after the Dutch philosopher Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam who throughout his life has lived and worked in many places in Europe to widen his horizon, expand his knowledge and gain new insights. Erasmus+ is the new programme combining all the EU's current schemes for education, training, youth and sport, which was launched in January 2014.

 Erasmus+ consists of many different activities; it enables the exchange of students and lecturers, joint development of study programmes and curriculum between partner institutions based on the European credit transfer system (ECTS). The programme supports language courses – EILC, intensive international programmes, and establishment of thematic networks between departments and faculties across Europe.

 Erasmus+ KA103 is targeted at higher education institutions and their students and staff in all 27 Member States of the European Union, the three countries of the European Economic Area (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway), and Turkey. There are currently more than 4,000 higher institutions participating in Erasmus across the 33 countries involved in the Erasmus program. So far more than 3 million students had taken part since the programme's inception in 1987. The most popular destinations being Spain, Germany, and France. Erasmus students represented around 5 percent of European graduates in the past years.

 The University of Dunaújváros has currently 40 partners from 23 different countries, which allows us to send and host students with different professional area from all over Europe. We strongly recommend all members of universities and other higher grades of education to take the initiative and seize the opportunity that an Erasmus journey offers:

 Gaining professional knowledge

  • Developing personal skills - e.g.: self-reliance
  • Improving foreign language skills in an international environment
  • Becoming acquainted with other cultures
  • Making personal and professional connections
  • Getting lifetime travel adventures, i.e. the Erasmus experience
  • The skills and senses acquired abroad by long odds be an advantage in the labour market
