About the seminar

To enable as many students as possible to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the Erasmus+ programme. Students, who have previously participated in an exchange or have done internships abroad through Erasmus+, are important role models. The Swedish Council for Higher Education has taken part of successful examples from higher education institutions that have involved students as ambassadors, which has led to an increased participation in a mobility through Erasmus+.

The purpose of the seminar is to gather students to share experiences and ideas on how students can inspire other students to participate in an exchange through Erasmus+. 

Expected outcomes

Student ambassadors are equipped with tools that can be applied in their work in promoting student mobility and shared among their peers.
