Erasmus program

The Erasmus Program (European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) is a European Union (EU) student exchange program.

The opportunities are endless. The friends and memories last a lifetime. The Erasmus exchange program is one of the greatest culture and character building programs that you can have in your whole life.

As a member of Erasmus, Georgian College is currently working on multiple student and staff exchange opportunities. Please check back often for new opportunities!

Why apply?

There is a growing need in the workplace for individuals who are able to live and work in an intercultural environment. Start setting yourself apart from your peers by showing potential employers how culturally competent you are!

Benefits of the Erasmus exchange program
