Erasmus+ Programme – the Topic of the Next Eurobulletin Issue

The new issue provides information about Erasmus+ Programme and the opportunities it offers to Belarusian citizens and organizations.

Mr.  Nikolay Listopad recounted the Erasmus+ projects that involve Belarus, the numbers of university students and staff that may go to the EU for studying and on-the-job training in the next two years, and why the joint master degree programme within Erasmus+ has not been implemented yet.

9 out of 13 joint interuniversity capacity-building projects in the field of higher education are co-implemented with BSU. Mr. Aleksandr Rytov explained why the leading Belarusian university considers participation in Erasmus+ as a priority in its development.

Ms. Lyudmila Gonchar commented on credit mobility for students and university staff, and how the candidates are elected.

Participation in Erasmus+ Youth projects offers young Belarusians an opportunity to get new knowledge, learn about the culture and traditions of European nations, make useful and fascinating contacts with their peers from various countries. Ms. Marina Korzh explained about the importance of youth exchange and volunteering.

Participants of various Erasmus+ projects shared their impressions, and results of their studies, apprenticeship and training in various European countries.

The issue is concluded with a block of news, inter alia, about the launch of the 2nd call for project proposals within the 2014-2020 Latvia-Lithuania-Belarus Cross Border Cooperation Programme.
