Erasmus Mobility

Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. The Erasmus programme was launched in June 1987 and it is one of the best-known Community actions and addresses the teaching and learning needs of all those in formal higher education and vocational education and training at tertiary level.

It has an estimated budget of €26.2 billion in the period 2021-2027.

The 2021-2027 programme places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions, and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life.

The University of Rijeka joined this program in 2009 and since then has signed over 695 Erasmus bilateral agreements with universities from the majority of Erasmus program countries. This cooperation includes students and staff exchange. In thirteen academic years more than 1900 University of Rijeka students and 600 staff members participated in Erasmus. Since 2011 University hosted more than 2200 incoming students and 850 incoming staff members.

Student mobility and accompanying academic recognition are deemed as necessary prerequisites for an open and dynamic European education area that will help facilitate European integration as well as employment market mobility. The University of Rijeka strongly encourages and facilitates student mobility through the Erasmus programme.

Students from universities that have signed the Erasmus Bilateral Agreement with the University of Rijeka may spend one or two semesters studying at our University.

Please note that incoming Erasmus students should be officially nominated by their home Erasmus coordinator. After being nominated for Erasmus exchange, Erasmus students should upload the Application Form and all relevant documents to UNIRI Erasmus Application Form database (see instructions under Incoming Erasmus Students).
