Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. The aim of Erasmus+ is to contribute to the strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy. UBT participates in this programme and has a high number of partner providers across Europe that offer student and staff exchange placements.

Every year about a considerable number of students come to UBT to study thanks to the Erasmus+ programme. In turn, at least the same number of students from UBT go abroad to study at other European universities.
The exchange plays an important role in sustaining UBT’s cosmopolitan atmosphere. The Erasmus+ student mobility program is available to students currently at one of our exchange-partner universities who would like to study at UBT. The mobility experience is approved and recognized as part of your studies for a semester or full academic year. Some degrees will also support shorter durations. For further details about the program and admission requirements, download the Application Guide for Incoming Students below.
A stay abroad is a good idea. It strengthens flexibility and versatility, deepens and expands professional and linguistic knowledge, engages students with a foreign culture, opens up new perspectives, changes self-assessment, and gives you additional self-confidence. If you are thinking of going abroad for a while, you should check the Application Guide for Outgoing Students that can be downloaded below. In case you have further questions, plan a visit to the International Relations Office well in advance. The staff there or the coordinators of the various exchange programmes can give many important tips and hints for planning your stay abroad
“At the very beginning I was totally confused but now I can say for sure that Erasmus+ is about learning to love the diversity, exploring the world, and discovering the uniqueness of every single voice you hear, of every single landscape you see.”
“The thing which gives me the greatest joy is to feel that I have travelled all around the world through the eyes of every person I have met during my Erasmus+ experience.”
“It is the result of being temperate, well-balanced, responsible, conscientious, and, of course, motivated.”
UBT welcomes and sends staff members for short term visits within the framework of agreements with a number of universities from the EU countries – based on annual quotas.
