Going on Erasmus is a great way for young people to learn more about themselves and develop their personal skills to make them more equipped to join a globalised society. However, students don’t always manage to voice which skills they have gained through their mobility.
The Erasmus Skills team is organising an online conference the 25th of February to bring together university staff and stakeholders in Higher Education that work on supporting students throughout their mobility experience. The event will focus on how to assess the skills gained through international student mobility and translate these gained competences into the curriculum and the career development of students.

The focus of the conference will be:
