Erasmus+ App

4 juli 2018 12:34

Last year the Erasmus+ Programme completed 30 years. Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe and you can find great opportunities via their website.

Recently they launched a new app that can make your Erasmus+ experience easier – and it’s available for both Android and iOS .

My Review of the Erasmus+ App

I had a quick look at the app. The promised features are quite interesting (signing learning agreement online, learning languages online, getting tips, etc).

However, there are some points that are still unclear:

  • Does a student get to sign the learning agreement and get in contact with the international office of his/her university in any case via the app, or just in case the home university is involved in the app?
  • The app promises to make students learn a new language, but the at the moment it is pretty basic and with no interactive features. I can imagine this to be a future step in the development – for the time being I use Duolingo to practice Dutch If you’re want to improve or learn Dutch, you can also start courses in different levels at Saxion Language Center : https://saxion.nl/language_expert/site/language-courses-and-coaching/dutch-as-second-language-nt2

On the other hand, useful tips are provided to exchange students, so it’s a great idea to download the app and check the features yourself.
