Erasmus and regulated studies: is Bologna alive for all study programmes?

Salon #5

- 19:00 ~ 21:00

The Erasmus+ programme has proven itself to be one of the most successful initiatives from the European Union. With 4.4 million higher education students having benefited from the programme since 1987, Erasmus+ plays a major role in the promotion of European values, in the fostering of intercultural dialogue and of course in the advocacy of international learning and teaching.

However, and despite its success, the Erasmus+ programme is not always equally accessible to all higher education students. In regulated studies (e.g.: pharmacy, medicine or law), students often face difficulties that prevent them from taking part in an Erasmus+ mobility. Field-specific obstacles, such as courses connected to national legislation and incompatibility between curricula in the same field of studies are some of the main challenges faced by students. What can be done do reduce field-specific obstacles to international student mobility? How can countries keep their country-specific regulations but still enable their students to have the opportunity to go abroad? These are some of the questions that will be discussed during this Salon.
