Studying for a short period at ArtEZ is a unique opportunity to gain experience in working with people from different cultural backgrounds, and to improve your language skills.


Erasmus+ is a scholarship programme created by the European Union to promote student mobility in Europe. Students can join a so called partner institute elsewhere in Europe for the maximum period of one year, learning about other countries, languages and cultures and at the same time pursuing their degree. 

Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE)

As part of the new Erasmus+ Programme, ArtEZ has obtained the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE). The ECHE is an important award that the EACEA (Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency) gives to institutions after a careful selection and evaluation procedure of the activities carried out within the Lifelong Learning Programme framework during the previous 7 years (2007-2013) of activity. Thanks to the ECHE award, ArtEZ will be able to participate in all the actions promoted within the new Erasmus+ programme which include mobility, cooperation and policies for change.

This participation will provide funding for various study, training, teaching and international research opportunities. The ECHE has a 7-year validity, from 2014 until the end of 2020.

Partner schools

Although the Erasmus+ programme is Europe oriented we have established several partnerships with non-EU institutes outside of this programme. Between partner schools, the option to study abroad is available for students from partner schools coming to ArtEZ, and the other way around. To find out if your school has a partnership with ArtEZ, see below.
