Erasmus Scheme’s ‘unfairness gap’ criticised

The Erasmus Scheme was set up in 1987 with the admirable aim of increasing academic mobility within Europe.

Via the funding of exchange programmes for students and staff, the scheme involves 90 per cent of all European universities and colleges across 31 countries.

However, as it approaches its quarter-century, the equitability of the scheme is a matter of debate, and it remains unclear whether students in some participating countries – rich or poor – get as much out of it as those from others.
