Erasmus Charter for Higher Education

Staffordshire University has been awarded an Erasmus Standard University Charter by the European Commission for the period 2014-2020.

What is the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education?

The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) provides the quality framework for Erasmus+ funded activities carried out by an institution. Therefore, institutions such as Staffordshire University must hold a valid ECHE in order to participate in Erasmus+.

Why is it important?

Erasmus+ aims support the European modernisation and internationalisation agenda in higher education, in particular the quality of student and staff mobility. By signing an ECHE, an institution confirms that its participation in Erasmus+ is part of its own strategy for modernisation and internationalisation.
