Evolution and proposal The Real Virtual Erasmus. This proposition for virtual ERASMUS is developed in the REVE project. Virtual Erasmus can both include taking courses abroad while staying at the home university and vice-versa and/or complementing the existing physical Erasmus exchange programmes with virtual preparatory and follow-up activities
Evolution and proposals Erasmus mundus The programme confirms the European Commission's interest in opening up European higher education to the rest of the world. Erasmus Mundus complements the European Union's existing regional programmes in higher education with third countries
Conclusion The Erasmus project is an excellent programme. However, it is important to keep it competitive. That's why we have to discuss the evolution of the charter to facilitate students' needs and mobility.
