Erasmus Mobility

The Erasmus programme was launched in June 1987 and in 2007 celebrated its 20th anniversary. 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 supports the achievement of a European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and reinforces the contribution of higher education and advanced vocational education to the process of innovation.

The University of Rijeka joined this program in 2009 and since then has signed over 640 Erasmus bilateral agreements with universities from the majority of EU and program countries. This cooperation includes students and staff exchange. In twelve academic years more than 1400 University of Rijeka students and 500 staff members participated in Erasmus. Since 2011 University hosted more than 1300 incoming students and 500 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 European 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).
