Gathering experiences through Erasmus+

After the completing their first year of study, students have the opportunity of taking part in an Erasmus+ exchange semester at a European partner university in order to broaden their socio-cultural skills and improve job prospects. The exchange gives them insight into foreign academic systems as well as their respective teaching and learning methods
