General information for Erasmus students

Erasmus+ is a EU programme that provides opportunities for millions of Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad. As an integrated programme, bringing together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of education, training, and youth, it aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernizing education, training, and youth work.

Having been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020, Pomeranian College signs inter-institutional agreements with Partner Universities from UE member states and non-UE programme countries to enable successful students and staff mobility for education and training. 

With regard to students mobility, Pomeranian College ensures full recognition for satisfactorily completed activities of study mobility in terms of credits awarded. The College applies ECTS system to guarantee the quality of mobility activities and transparency of recognition procedures. In ECTS, 60 credits are attached to the workload of a full academic year, with associated learning outcomes; 30 ECTS credits are given for a semester. At the end of the mobility period, a student receives a Transcript of Records which indicates all activities and courses satisfactorily completed by a student, a number of ECTS credits earned for each course, grades achieved etc. All credits a student earns during the mobility period are originally agreed in the Learning Agreement and recognized by the home institution. A Diploma Supplement which includes student achievements earned during their study at the College and abroad is issued to accompany every degree successfully completed by a student.
