Erasmus+ at MENDELU and Faculty of Horticulture

Erasmus is the most widely used educational mobility programme in Europe. Since 2014, the programme also offers forming educational alliances to foster cooperation between universities and other organisations create new educational methods and carry out research. Just a brief information on how it works… to exchange students and academic staff, universities must first make a bilateral agreement where they stipulate the number of students and conditions for accepting them. Universities have their English courses catalogues available online and students choose, what they are going to study beforehand. Students can also opt to do their training abroad in specialist companies or universities that complement their education and prepare them for future jobs. To study or train abroad, students get Erasmus grant helping them to cover travel, housing and living expenses. Every year some 300 students from MENDELU go to study abroad and about the same number arrive to take courses in MENDELU. The traffic for trainship is a little lower but it is important primarily for Ph.D. students who get to use new research methods and different technology essential for their research. As a university we perceive how much easier students who used Erasmus programme find employment after graduation but we also benefit from staff exchanges that bring new ideas and concepts into taching and research.
