The new Erasmus+ programme allows several exchanges

Hanken offers all students the possibility to go on exchange once during their studies. The exchange studies should fit into your degree and not prolong your studies. According to the latest news regarding the new Erasmus+ programme (2014-2020), the Erasmus+ programme allows students to participate in the Erasmus Exchange programme several times. This means if you have already been on Erasmus exchange before your studies at Hanken you can now also apply for Erasmus exchange on Master level through the Hanken Exchange Programme. Due to regulations of the European Union this was not possible before. Please note that the duration of your exchange is one semester only.
