The Erasmus programme was launched in June 1987 and in 2007 celebrated its 20th anniversary. It is one of the best-known Community actions and addresses the teaching and learning needs of all those in formal higher education and vocational education and training at tertiary level. It supports the achievement of a European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and reinforces the contribution of higher education and advanced vocational education to the process of innovation.
The University of Rijeka joined this program in 2009 and since then has signed over 315 Erasmus bilateral agreements with universities from the majority of EU countries. This cooperation includes students and staff exchange. In five academic years more than 500 University of Rijeka students and 60 staff members participated in Erasmus.
Student mobility and accompanying academic recognition are deemed as necessary prerequisites for an open and dynamic European education area that will help facilitate European integration as well as employment market mobility. The University of Rijeka strongly encourages and facilitates student mobility through the Erasmus programme.
Students from European universities that have signed the Erasmus Bilateral Agreement with the University of Rijeka may spend one or two semesters studying at our University.
Please note that incoming Erasmus students should be officially nominated by their home Erasmus coordinator. After being nominated for Erasmus exchange, Erasmus students should send the Application Form and all relevant documents to the International Relations Office (see instructions under Incoming Erasmus Students).
