Outgoing exchange

More information



More than 3.3 million people have gone to study, teach, or volunteer abroad via the ERASMUS+ programme and the numbers are only increasing! Ventspils University of Applied Sciences (VUAS) is one of many universities to offer this exciting opportunity. The programme aims to promote students’ education and the development of foreign study experience.

Our students have the chance to spend a semester or a whole year in a partner university or traineeship institution of their choice.
Students can benefit from an exchange abroad with Erasmus+ multiple times, either as a student or as a trainee, but their total time abroad (study abroad periods included) may not exceed 12 months within one cycle of study.

“Cycle” refers to the level of study as defined by the European Qualifications Framework (EQF)

First cycle (Bachelor or equivalent) EQF – 5/6
Second cycle (Master or equivalent) EQF 7
Third cycle (Doctoral or equivalent) EQF 8

The exchange programmes do not disappoint – students and lecturers return from them with a broader world view, new knowledge in their speciality, better command of languages, and uncountable exciting adventures to remember.
