About Europe in Exchange

Established in: 2012

Main aim:

The project aims is to bring all the students and young people in Europe and neighboring countries the possibility to take part in mobility programmes.

History:

A part of the Education Working Group wished to bring all the students and young people in Europe and the neighbouring countries the possibility to take part in mobility programs. The project will work on disseminating information about different kinds of exchange opportunities.

Through the activities of AEGEE locals, the project team aims to increase the number of destinations and possibilities for mobility in universities inside and outside the current Erasmus zone, and lobbies in universities for implementing easier procedures and more clear guidelines for applying for mobility programs and respect the Erasmus Student Charter. Moreover, on the European level, Europe in Exchange lobbies for an adequate structure and funding of the mobility programs, including countries outside of the current Erasmus area.

Through different activities, the project also strives to reduce the language barriers, in order to open the possibility of applying for mobility programs to more students.

Objectives:

1 – Make students better informed about mobility programmes and possibilities and its benefits.

2 – Advocate for an adequate structure and funding for mobility of students and young people, both in the EU and its neighbouring countries.

3 – Increase the number of destinations and possibilities for mobility in universities inside and outside the current Erasmus zone.

4 – Support students organizations to reduce obstacles that students face, as the language barrier, to benefit from mobility programmes.

5 – Support AEGEE locals in their actions connected with our aim.

How do we plan to achieve these objectives? Check the implementation section of our website.
