Erasmus+ is an exchange programme set up by the European Union which enables students to follow, and to be assessed in, courses at foreign universities, as part of the degree programme for which they are registered in their home university. Erasmus+ students usually spend one full academic year at a foreign university. On successful completion of the Erasmus year, and once the requirements outlined below have been met, BATh students may be awarded the BATh International Degree.
