Erasmus exchange attracts record number of Danes

The EU’s Erasmus exchange programme for students and researchers has funded a record number of Danish students in 2011-2012, according to a report.

In the 2011-2012 academic year 3,315 Danish students participated in a study or internship exchange programme organised by Erasmus. This is 547 students more than the year before and twice the number of students who participated in the programme in 2007, the Danish government’s annual report on EU programmes for Lifelong Learning and Youth Action shows.

Denmark spent €3.8 million on the Lifelong Learning fund in 2012, compared to €3.2m the year before. Despite the increase in number of students and the increased budget, Denmark still receives €1m in unused funds back each year from the European Commission, the report stated.
