Mūžizglītības programma

ERASMUS (European Region Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is one of the most popular student and faculty exchange programs in lifelong learning. It promotes academic development in the European Union (EU).

It involves opportunity for teaching staff to share experiences, and provide students the chance to spend part of their study time in another country university within European Union and gaining internship experience in a foreign company.

Erasmus program involves all 27 EU Member States, 3 European Economic Area countries (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway), as well as Switzerland and Turkey.

The Programme fosters not only learning and understanding the host country, but also a sense of community among students from different countries. The Erasmus experience is considered both a time for learning as well as a chance to socialize.

Students do not have to pay any tuition fee at the partner institution. However, it is students’ responsibility to continue paying tuition fee at RISEBA according to their paying plan. 
Best students will be awarded Erasmus Scholarships to cover their subsistence costs during the exchange period. Scholarship amount is limited, therefore those students who meet the criteria have possibility to participate in the programme anyway, but they will have to cover their costs by their own.
