Erasmus+ and International Exchange Programmes
Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) has inter-institutional agreements with over 100 universities within the EU and over 25 universities internationally. Every year we welcome over 200 students on our Erasmus+ and International Exchange Programmes into our Schools of Business, Humanities, Science, Engineering and Health Sciences.
Erasmus+ is for students attending our partner institutes within the EU and the International Exchange Programme is for students attending our partner institutes outside the EU.
Both Exchange Programmes provide opportunities for students from all over the world to join and contribute to our vibrant, multicultural community at WIT. Spending a few months in a different culture and community is the best opportunity to establish intercultural contacts, have a valuable insight into a different culture, learn a language and grow as a person.
There are many benefits for WIT also. Two of the most important are: having a diverse community that enriches our own students' learning experience and building our international connectivity for the next generation.
