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.
HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht currently has partnerships with 237 universities around the world. Around 200 of these partnerships are through an Erasmus+ Inter Institutional Agreement.
Over the past few years, many of our students and staff have taken the opportunity to spend time at one of our partner institutions from Erasmus+, and we have welcomed many in return. You can find the numbers in the tables below.
