Erasmus Charter for Higher Education
In order for a higher education institution to participate in the Erasmus+ programme, an application for an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) must be submitted. The University of Borås has been granted an EVHE for the current programme period. ECHE establishes the basic principles for all Erasmus cooperation within higher education. For the programme period 2021-2027 a doubled budget has been proposed for Erasmus+, and the university is preparing to submit a new ECHE application during the spring of 2020. Once granted a charter, the university can apply for projects or participate as a partner in projects that other universities coordinate.
Erasmus Policy Statement
One part of the application for the ECHE is an Erasmus Policy Statement (EPS) which describes the implementation of the programme at the university, linked to strategies and activities.
The university participates in various kinds of Erasmus+ projects. The International Office coordinates both Erasmus+ mobility with partner universities in Europe and Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) with non-European partners.
