Erasmus +

The Erasmus+ Study Mobility is a programme that offers Casa College students the chance to travel to one of the European Union countries and study abroad for the years 2021-2027. At present, we are cooperating with 10 partner institutions that could serve as a destination opportunity for our students. More partner institutions will be added soon, after signing the inter-institutional agreements.

Budget Erasmus+ 2021

Budget Erasmus+ 2022

By attending the programme, Casa College students can gain a lot of experience and value in education without having to worry so much about the financial aspect, as those who participate in the programme do not pay university fees abroad, only the tuition at Casa College. Also, those who qualify to go on the mobility programme will be awarded an Erasmus Grant which helps them to pay for their accommodation and daily expenses. A travel allowance is also provided to the students and it is calculated based on the distance between Cyprus and the host institution.

Why participate in the Erasmus+ Programme (Students’ Mobilities)

  • It is a fabulous opportunity to experience the world
  • Put into practice your independence and self-reliance
  • Make friends across the globe
  • Improve inter-cultural skills
  • Add something very significant to your CV and create new job prospects for yourself
  • Create networks for the future

You may spend three (3) months or one (1) academic semester of your Bachelor studies under the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme. This period abroad will be fully accredited to your degree, through the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).


  1. Casa College and the receiving institution must have an inter-institutional agreement between them for the applicant to study there with Erasmus+ in the specific area of study.
  2. You will receive an EU grant as a contribution to your expenses abroad including travelling expenses.
  3. You will not pay tuition fees at the host university.
  4. Your mobility destination should be different from the country you live in during your studies.
  5. Cyprus should not be considered a mobility destination.

Who can apply? (Students’ Mobilities)

CASA College graduates can also gain their first work experience abroad immediately after their graduation and within a period of 12 months after obtaining their degree. Even though the programme has a European Union character, it also offers the possibility to travel beyond the borders of the European Union.

To apply, the prospective student must meet the following criteria:

  • GPA of at least 2.5
  • At least 60 ECTS credits (1st year of studies) completed
  • Recommendation letter by a Faculty member

The Erasmus Grant will be discussed in detail with each participant after the selection of successful applicants. Priority will be given to students in their 3rd/4th year of study. For 2nd-year student mobilities, lower priority will be given.

Priorities for the Erasmus+ Programme


Selection (Students’ Mobilities)

  1. Our procedure of selection is based on transparency. You will be selected in a fair way. Grants are awarded to students who have the best grades and they exhibit appropriate student behaviour.
  2. Other skills are also considered such as motivation, intellectual ability, analytical ability, maturity, determination to pursue an objective, interpersonal skills in teamwork, and ability to work in a multicultural context.

Before the period of study abroad:

  1. Your sending and receiving higher education institutions must sign a ‘Learning Agreement for Studies’ to ensure a transparent and efficient preparation of the exchange abroad, as well as to agree on how activities successfully completed abroad will be recognised. This document sets out the rights and responsibilities of the various parties.
  2. You will sign a ‘grant agreement’ specifying the duration of your mobility, the amount of the grant, and other rights and obligations.
  3. You will receive the Erasmus+ Student Charter, explaining your rights and obligations with respect to your period of study abroad.

After the period of study abroad:

  1. The receiving higher education institution must provide you and your sending institution with a transcript of records confirming that the agreed programme has been completed and acknowledge the results.
  2. Your higher education institution must recognise the credits (using the ECTS credit system or an equivalent system) as agreed in the Learning Agreement for Studies before the mobility and count them towards your degree, without any further requirements.

As an Erasmus+ student, you will be exempted from fees for tuition, registration, examinations, and charges for access to laboratories or libraries at the receiving institution. Small fees for insurance or student union membership may still apply.
