Erasmus Exchanges
The Erasmus Programme is a European Commission programme which enables and encourages students across Europe to study at another university as part of their university degree programme.
Students are given the opportunity to apply from our selected university partners. The Departmental Exchange Coordinator will review the applications, taking in to account the grades achieved in the Senior Freshman Semester 1 term tests, reviewing motivational letters and performance at a group dynamic exercise and ascertain the suitability of the student for Erasmus exchange.
