The English Department resumes the already successfully implemented project International Credit Mobility Under Key Action 1 of the Erasmus + programme in collaboration with the University of Leiden (the Netherlands).


Leiden University was founded in 1575 by Prince William of Orange (the Silent), the leader of the revolution of the Netherlands during the Eighty Years’ War.  In the 17th century it was the largest centre of Calvinist education in Europe; inextricably linked with it are the names of Hugo Grotius, Jacob Arminius, Joseph Skligera, Herman Boerhaave, Bernhard Varenius and the Elseviers.


In 2013 Leiden University had the highest rating among universities in the Netherlands and this result was published in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, where it was ranked as the 28th best university in the world and the 61st in the international reputation rating.

The project focuses on the mobility of students and staff between higher education institutions that are part of the Erasmus + programme, and partner-countries.
