Exchange Programme for Outgoing Students

ERASMUS is the most successful student exchange programme in the world. Each year, more than 230 000 students study abroad thanks to the Erasmus programme. It also offers the opportunity for student placements in enterprises, university staff teaching and training, and it funds cooperation projects between higher education institutions across Europe.

The ERASMUS+ Programme – studying in Europe and more

 

Liepaja University has been participating in the European Community higher education programme ERASMUS+ since the 1999/2000 academic year and it is coordinated by LiepU Foreign Affairs department. The programme has opened a great opportunity to widen transnational cooperation between higher education institutions by promoting mobility for students and teaching staff.

  • Are registered students at Liepaja University

Within the framework of Erasmus+ programme Liepaja University offers LiepU students Study Mobility and Student Mobility for Placements.

 

 

Study Mobility (time period: 3-12 months)

 

The Erasmus+ mobility programme offers an unique opportunity to enrich study period at the Liepaja University by combining it with 3 to 12 months at one of our 70+ Partner Universities.
