ERASMUS Universitätscharta

Erasmus University Charter (EUC) / Eligible universities

The compulsory condition for the participation of a higher education institution in Erasmus+ is the successful application for the Erasmus University Charter (EUC) or an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) to the European Commission. This Charter entitles higher education institutions to apply for Erasmus funding from their national agencies.


The exchange of students, teachers and university staff takes place on the basis of bilateral agreements between the participating higher education institutions. Both institutions must hold a valid Erasmus+ University Charter of the program period 2021-2027.
