This month two of our students, Lee Ke Xin from the Faculty of Business (BBM) and Tan Suet Yong from the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism (BHM) flew to Austria under the student exchange programme. They will be studying abroad for one semester at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences. How exciting!
The sponsored student exchange programme is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Student Exchange Programme of the European Union which BERJAYA University College (BERJAYA UC) is a proud partner.
The Erasmus+ Programme aims to promote the modernisation, accessibility and internationalisation of higher education in partner countries across the world, including Asia.
For over 30 years, students and staff have moved between European universities in the Erasmus programme. Since 2015, Erasmus+ has also allowed short-term mobility to Europe from other parts of the world for students, researchers, and staff. This two-way mobility allows students to study in a foreign university for 3-12 months and obtain credits which are then recognised at the sending institution as part of the higher education programme.
By studying abroad with Erasmus+, students can improve their communication, language and intercultural skills and gain soft skills highly valued by future employers.
