Erasmus / Erasmus +

The University of Rijeka is participating in the Erasmus programme since the academic year 2009/2010. During seven academic years, more than 800 students and 195 faculty members of the University participated in the program. Also, since 2011, when Croatia fully entered the Erasmus programme, the University hosted more than 540 Erasmus students and 250 faculty members.

In December 2013 the Erasmus University Charter (255208-LA-1-2014-1-HR-E4AKA1-ECHE) was awarded to the University of Rijeka for participation in the Erasmus + programme in the period from 2014 to 2020.

Erasmus + is the European Union's program for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. The budget for the seven-year duration of the Erasmus + program is 14.7 billion euros.

Erasmus + brings together all the existing European and international projects and initiatives in the field of education, training, youth and sports and will replace seven existing programmes with one. It brings together the existing Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig), Youth in Action and five international cooperation programmes (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the programme for cooperation with industrialised countries).

It is envisaged that within the framework of the Erasmus + program, 5 million people will be given the opportunity to study or to improve their skills abroad.
