Erasmus days, running from Thursday through Sunday, will offer some 80 programmes nationwide promoting the European Union’s Erasmus+ student exchange programme, organisers told MTI on Wednesday.
Hungarian institutions engaged in secondary, tertiary and vocational education received nearly 16 billion forints (EUR 50m) funding within the programme in 2019, with 21,000 students gaining experience in international projects, they said.
The Erasmus Days events will take place in 40 countries. In Hungary, 25 towns and cities will participate with a variety of events including interactive city walks, flashmobs and a digital escape room, the organisers said.
As we wrote today, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó held talks in Brazil, and he talked about person-to-person relations. In recent years, more than two thousand Brazilian students have attended Hungarian universities, and from September this year 250 Brazilian youth started their studies in Hungary, he said. Hungarian departments opened at two universities in Brazil and next year a Hungarian cultural festival will be held in the country, he added.
