European University Cyprus has been awarded a new Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027, after the European Commission graded the relevant proposal with the maximum possible score (100%).
The new Erasmus Charter will enable the University to participate in a number of actions with a total budget of several million euro. Such actions include the mobility of students and staff within the EU, and participation in projects such as Partnerships for Cooperation and exchanges of good practices, both of which receive a set budget of €0.5 million per year, with the aim of increasing by 2027.
Moreover, the University aims to participate in 1-4 programmes of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master degrees by 2027, open to students worldwide, with each programme receiving about €4.5 million.
The University has also set a target to participate in a European Universities Alliance by 2023, with each alliance receiving up to €5 million from the Erasmus programme and up to €2 million from Horizon 2020. This participation will significantly reinforce the University’s status of excellence, while enhancing European sentiment.
