Students can participate in the European student exchange program ERASMUS+. The ERASMUS + is the European Commission’s new program for education, training, youth and sport, which came into effect on January 1, 2014.
It integrates previous EU programs for education, training and youth including, inter alia, the integrated Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius, Grundtvig), the program “Youth in Action” and five international cooperation programs (Erasmus Mundus , Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and cooperation programs with industrialized countries).
Specifically, the ERASMUS student exchange + program enables students who have successfully completed the first year of study and meet specific requirements to do part of their study program in a related department of a European academic institutions from a minimum of 6 (1 semester ) up to 12 months (2 semesters) course. The UoWM is actively involved since 2004 in the ERASMUS+ student exchange program and for this purpose there are bilateral agreements with recognized academic institutions abroad, in which the Department of Environmental Engineering students are eligible to do part of their studies in the academic year 2016- 2017. Following a call for expressions of interest, students apply, are evaluated by the Director of the program and are selected to participate. Moreover, the ERASMUS + program evolves and expands its operations, it now enables the employment of students under internships in organizations and companies abroad for up to 12 months.
