  10. 10. SocialErasmus - Aims To complete the stay abroad with the original values of the Erasmus Programme. To get to know new cultures and education systems as well as to make new unforgettable friendships, but also it should be a kind of inspiration for a future life. While getting to know new cultures, to contribute to local society Erasmus programme participants will get a new perspective, which would be beyond their cognitive abilities, if they did not take part in the Erasmus program. Taking into consideration the above factors, the main slogan of the project is: Reach higher! Go further! Go Social! 10
