Erasmus+ Student Charter
To promote Erasmus+ students' awareness of their rights and obligations, each Erasmus student will receive an Erasmus+ Student Charter from their home university before leaving for the study period abroad. The Charter is a short information leaflet that tells Erasmus+ students what they are entitled to and also what they are expected to do during their secondment.

The Erasmus+ Student Charter outlines the basic entitlements of the Erasmus+ students, such as free tuition and full recognition of studies abroad. The Charter also specifies the main obligations of the Erasmus+ students, providing them with a concise idea of their duties in respect to both their home and host universities. It will be issued to all Erasmus+ students by their home universities before they leave for their study period abroad.

Special situation Switzerland

At the moment the EU and Switzerland have agreed to stop current negotiations on Erasmus+. Switzerland therefore implemented the Swiss-European Mobility Program (SEMP). For more information please get in contact with the Swiss partner institution.
