Erasmus+ Incoming Students

The Erasmus+ programme is a European Union funding exchange programme. Students from a European partner university are eligible to study at DkIT for a semester or an academic year. We have over 600 international students studying at the Institute during a typical academic year and they come from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures to play an important role in campus life.

As a visiting Erasmus student at DkIT, you will enjoy a wonderful and unique experience, with top quality teaching and learning facilities, friendly staff, a beautiful green campus, and of course, a fun social life! This page includes all the information you will need to help you prepare for your DkIT experience.
