What is the ERASMUS?

The ERASMUS program was created in 1987 as a student exchange program. The primary goal remains the development of international cooperation between universities. Erasmus program covers the universities, as well as their students and employees. Through this program, students have the opportunity to complete part of their studies and internships abroad, whereas universities - to participate in international projects. Poland participates in the Erasmus program since 1998/99.

The ERASMUS+ program builds on the achievements of more than 25 years of European program in the fields of education and training covering both an intra-European as well as an international cooperation dimension. ERASMUS+ is the result of the integration of the European program, including the European Union "Learning for life", implemented during the period 2007-2013. From the academic year 2013/2014 ERASMUS+ is in force.

Students of the Faculty of Economics during studying abroad have the opportunity to improve their foreign language, but also a different culture and to increase awareness of diversity in Europe. Multilingualism is one of the cornerstones of ERASMUS+ goals and a powerful symbol of the EU's aspiration to be united in diversity. Foreign languages have a prominent role among the skills that will help equip people better for the labour market and make the most of available opportunities. It is also addressed such qualities as competitiveness, and qualifications of graduates that are important to tackle challenges of employment markets.

The  Faculty of Economics offers more than 180 possibilities to go to universities in more than 19 different European countries each year.
