Erasmus Charter

The heCh benefits from the ERASMUS UNIVERSITY CHARTER (no. 27824-EPP-1-2014-1-BE-EPPKA3-ECHE). This document is essential for participating in the Erasmus+ programme. It attests to the Institute’s desire to develop a high-quality international mobility policy, specifically by increasing the number of partnerships with foreign universities and deepening the exchanges between students and teachers.

Through this charter, Europe recognises the heCh as a European partner.


International relations are handled by the Office of International Relations (BRI), which reports directly to the President of the heCh.

The BRI’s competence lies in the conclusion of contracts with foreign partners that are signed in the context of the European Erasmus+ programme and the extra-European Fund for Aiding Student Mobility (Fonds d’Aide à la Mobilité étudiante - FAME). It also manages projects financed by other organisations. It centralises and guarantees supervision of records for students and teachers benefiting from mobility aid (Erasmus+, Erasmus Belgica, Fonds d'Aide à la Mobilité Etudiante, various commissions, Wallonia-Quebec, etc).

Information on the exchange programmes and the partners is collated here. The BRI establishes contact between foreign partners and the coordinators of each department. The latter are responsible for setting up programmes of study and placements for mobility students and for welcoming foreign teachers and students.
