The Erasmus+ Program

Since 2005, the HfMDK has participated in the Erasmus program and has promoted the exchange of students, lecturers and staff with our partner universities, in accordance with the goals and requirements of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).

The current generation of Erasmus+ (2021-2027) aims to

  • advance the modernization, internationalization and qualitative improvement of higher education in Europe,
  • strengthen the international competences, personal development and employability of students,
  • to increase the attractiveness of the EU as a study and academic location
  • and to contribute to the sustainable development of higher education in third countries.

Erasmus+ in higher education is divided into three key actions:

Any higher education institution wishing to participate in and/or apply for Erasmus+ must have a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).
The ECHE has been awarded by the European Commission. It proves that a higher education institution meets all the requirements for successful participation in the Erasmus+ program.

According to the requirements of the European Commission, both the ECHE and the European Policy Statement (EPS) must be published on the university's website.
