Erasmus+ Exchange

Vilnius Business College gives an opportunity for students to study and do internships in foreign higher education institutions, businesses or organizations under the ERASMUS + program. The aim of this program is to give students even more academic and practical knowledge and to improve their knowledge of foreign languages.

Encouraged to participate in the Erasmus + mobility program, we aim to introduce students to the disciplines of universities in other European countries and provide an opportunity to get to know the cultures of other countries. Studying and practicing abroad will give everyone a lot of life and academic experience, study independence and even more self-confidence. Scholarships are awarded for one- or two-semester studies for internships abroad. Students have the opportunity to study in English, Russian and Spanish.

The Vilnius College of Business has been awarded the Erasmus+ Higher Education Charter (ECHE), which confirms the Erasmus + objectives.

The aim of the Erasmus + program is to promote the international mobility of students, to provide students with the opportunity to do internships in foreign companies, to gain linguistic and cultural experience and to get acquainted with the experience of European countries in the field of study disciplines.
