Erasmus+ is a European funding programme providing grants for a wide range of activities in the fields of education, youth and sports. As an important requirement for taking part in the Erasmus+ programme, each Higher Education Institution must apply for an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).

Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE)

Avans University of Applied Sciences is awarded with the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) for the Erasmus+ programme 2021-2027. This enables our students and staff to participate in the Erasmus+ mobility programme.

Erasmus Policy Statement

By applying for this charter, Avans has committed herself to implement the activities funded by the Erasmus+ programme in line with the fundamental principles of the charter and to publish the Erasmus Policy Statement (2021-2027).
