For Ghent University, Erasmus+ is a vital instrument in the attainment of its strategic ambition to see 25% of its students study abroad by 2020. Erasmus+ Key Action 1a on student mobility accounts for 85% of the University’s outgoing exchange. Moreover, as a comprehensive higher education institution with more than 42,000 students, Ghent University greatly values the opportunities that the programme brings for the internationalisation and modernisation of its educational offer, as well as for capacity building with its overseas partners.
