International collaboration and mobility

Internationalisation is one of the spearheads of policy for the coming years. The University of Humanistic Studies wants to strengthen its international cooperation in the field of education and research and increase the incoming and outgoing mobility of staff and students. In addition to the international contacts that employees maintain, we are involved in a number of international initiatives. 


The Erasmus programme  was introduced in 1989 with the aim of promoting student mobility. It has developed over the years into a comprehensive European funding programme for education, youth and sport.  Erasmus+ promotes, among other things, student and staff mobility for work and study and cooperation projects between higher education institutions, organisations and businesses across Europe and beyond.

The University of Humanistic Studies has been participating in the programme since 2011, and holds an PDF fileErasmus+ Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027. The PDF fileErasmus Policy Statement outlines our internationalisation strategy.
