Exchange Studies and ERASMUS+

Estonian Business School students have the possibility to become exchange students in all our partner universities and other higher educational institutions around the world – mainly in Europe, but also in Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Georgia, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Africa and South Korea. EBS has signed an agreement with more than 70 partner universities.

You may qualify for student exchange, regardless of whether you are a daytime, evening, distant or master student. Being an exchange student means that you study abroad for a semester or two.

For international exchange students it is possible to come to EBS for one semester or for the whole academic year to study in any of the regular business courses.

Every year around 60 EBS students study abroad, and EBS receives about 120 incoming students from all over the world. 

There are different possibilities to study abroad:

  • ERASMUS+ programme

You may choose between EBS partner universities and receive a scholarship from the European Union and Republic of Estonia. The scholarship is only applicable to those who are EU citizens and study in the EU countries.

The partner university provides a list of subjects that international students may choose from. EBS students generally base their choice on their own curriculum in EBS. The credit points that you have received in the foreign university will be transferred by EBS and you do not need to take the subject again.

Erasmus charter for higher education 2014-2020

The Erasmus+ programme supports, among other policy objectives, the European modernisation and internationalisation agenda in higher education. The Programme covers the period 2014-2020.

The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) provides the general quality framework for European and international cooperation activities a higher education institution (HEI) may carry out within the Programme. The award of an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education is a pre-requisite for all HEIs located in an eligible country (the list is published in the call – see the link below) and willing to participate in learning mobility of individuals and/or cooperation for innovation and good practices under the Programme. For HEIs located in other countries, the ECHE is not required, and the quality framework will be established through inter-institutional agreements between HEIs. The Charter is awarded for the full duration of the Programme.

  • Studying Outside the European Union

In case you choose an EBS partner university outside the EU, you do not qualify for the scholarship offered by the EU and Republic of Estonia. It is worth finding out whether the host university provides the opportunity to apply for different scholarships.
