Erasmus+ in brief
Erasmus+ is the European program for education, training, youth and sport. It aims to encourage transnational cooperation between schools and universities, stimulating European mobility and improving the transparency and academic recognition of studies and qualifications throughout the European Union but also worldwide in some cases.
“I traveled a lot during my LV1 study stay. I have unforgettable moments in my mind, the people I had the chance to meet and especially the discovery of new cultures. You discover totally different visions and you come back enriched. If I have one piece of advice to give, it is go for it and travel!” Samy, 3rd year Digital Engineering student.
“International is very present at ESAIP, which is a real advantage to demonstrate my international mobility. It is a great strength to have experiences all over the world. An engineer must be open to the world. After my studies I want to work abroad, in China.” Anaïs, 5th year student Risk Prevention, Environment Engineer.
