Education

The most traditional international program is student mobility within Erasmus program, that has allowed the European students to spend periods of study and apprenticeship in a foreign university since 1987, surely an essential experience according to the judgment of the students. The participant students put in common their experiences and draw a patrimony of values that they bring with themselves for the whole life.
