KAUST joins ERASMUS program
December 20, 2010
The King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) has become the first Saudi university to join the prestigious European Region Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students (ERASMUS) Mundus program. Participation in the program is now available to university students, postdoctoral research fellows and staff from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Individuals can apply to study at partner universities in Spain, Austria, Sweden, Ireland and the Netherlands. The ERASMUS Mundus program, funded by the European Union (EU), will pay the fees, stipends, and travel expenses of successful applicants. In the future, KAUST will welcome ERASMUS Mundus exchange students from science disciplines.
Established 23 years ago, the ERASMUS student exchange program has provided more than two million students with the opportunity to study abroad.
