Erasmus+

HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht is the proud holder of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) 2014-2020. This enables our students and staff to participate in the Erasmus+ mobility programme. Find all of the details about grants and partner institutions here.

The European Union's Erasmus+ programme was established to support university students and staff during a stay abroad with additional funding, allowing many more to join an exchange programme. For us, this enables increased staff mobility, developing new international programmes, setting up new exchange agreements, organising partner visits, and aiding students taking part in international activities.
