European Commission publishes findings from the Erasmus Impact Study

The European Commission presents the main findings from the Erasmus Impact Study today. This study, compiled by independent experts, measures the impact the whole Erasmus exchange programme 2007-2013 has had on the employability and skills of students.

“The results of the European Commission’s survey of the impact of Erasmus highlight the importance an international experience has for students, employers and the UK economy. Lower unemployment, higher numbers in managerial positions and a more entrepreneurial outlook of Erasmus students are key findings, and clearly show that the opportunities offered under Erasmus and Erasmus+ really can change lives and open doors.”, comments Ruth Sinclair-Jones, Director Erasmus+ UK National Agency.
