During your studies at RSU you can also choose to study abroad. Erasmus+ is a great opportunity to spend between 3 and 12 months in another European country and have it count towards your degree. You get to experience another culture and a new way of looking at your subject.

ERASMUS+

ERASMUS is the EU's education and training programme that enables students to study abroad. Through ERASMUS, university students have a chance to go to other European universities to study, thus contributing to their qualifications, experience and understanding of different environments and cultures.

The goal of the ERASMUS student mobility is to enable students to benefit educationally, linguistically and culturally from the experience of learning in other European countries, to promote cooperation between institutions and to enrich the educational environment of host institutions and to contribute to the development of a pool of well-qualified, open-minded and internationally experienced young people as future professionals.

More than 4000 higher education institutions in 33 countries (all EU member states as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey, Croatia and the FYR of Macedonia) are involved in ERASMUS activities. Periods abroad can last from 3 to 12 months.

The credit points acquired for the subjects studied abroad within the framework of ERASMUS mobility are fully transferred to the RSU study programme.

While abroad, students are entitled to pay the full tuition fee to RSU; no tuition or any other fees are paid to the host institution.
