Erasmus Charter (ECHE) and Erasmus University Policy Statement (EPS)
The Erasmus Charter forms the basis for all activities applied for and carried out under the Erasmus+ programme. A new Charter must be applied for with each new Erasmus+ programme generation. Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences has repeatedly successfully applied for and received the respective Erasmus Charter since its introduction.
An important part of the Erasmus Charter is the Erasmus+ European Policy Statement (EPS). This statement sets out the strategy, objectives and priorities of Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences in relation to the activities carried out under the Erasmus+ programme and explains how the quality of the measures implemented is ensured.
