Abstract:The article focuses on student stays through the Erasmus program, which is currently presented at each university. Erasmus is a program that offers students the opportunity to visit other universities in other countries of the world, as part of their studies at the university and it is a source of new experiences for students who complete it. Thanks to the Erasmus program, students will see above all the way in which foreign universities are taught and what distinguishes them from those in their home country. The starting point of the paper is information from secondary sources, which are mostly blogs and websites of some selected universities from different countries of the world. The university website provides information on the conditions under which students can complete the Erasmus program at certain universities, as well as information on what the Erasmus program offers to students. Blogs, on the other hand, are the sources from which feedback is received from Erasmus students. The primary goal of the paper is to find out what the Erasmus program brought to the students who completed it and what their experience with the program has been. Therefore, in addition to evaluating information from secondary sources, interviews with several Erasmus students were conducted for the purpose of the paper. Specifically with students from the University of Žilina from the Faculty of PEDAS.
Keywords: Erasmus, students, university.
