4th Erasmus Mobility Week 2023, May 2023

You are invited to our 4th Erasmus Mobility Week, which will be held in May in Nicosia hosted by European University Cyprus.

The purpose of the week is to provide an excellent international learning environment and networking opportunities for guest staff (administration & faculty), EUC staff and students. The week will also include social and cultural activities that offer participants a taste of Cypriot history and culture.
