Erasmus Charta

Erasmus Charta and European Policy Statement (EPS)

The Erasmus Charta is the foundation for all activities which are carried out in the framework of the Erasmus programme. A new charta application is required for each new programme generation.  Hochschule Darmstadt has applied for it successfully each time since its introduction.

An important part of the Erasmus Charta is the European Policy Statement. This statement states the strategy, goals, and priorities of Hochschule Darmstadt in regards to its European activities and especially the Erasmus programme and illustrates how the quality of the activities will be guaranteed.
