Erasmus Charter higher education


In 2013 Varna Free University "Chernorizets Hrabar" was awarded with Erasmus Charter higher education (ECHE) for the entire duration of Erasmus + programme from 2014 to 2020 by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).

In accordance with the requirements for the award of Erasmus Charter for Higher Education VFU has developed Erasmus Policy Statement which points out:

  • Our international (EU and non-EU) strategy –how we choose our partners, geographical area, most important objectives and target groups of our mobility activities (with regard to staff and students in first, second and third cycles, including study and training, and short cycles);
  • Our institution's strategy for the organisation and implementation of international (EU and non-EU) cooperation projects in teaching and training in relation to projects implemented under the Programme;
  • The expected impact of university participation in the Programme on the modernisation of VFU “Chernorizets Hrabar”  and the Modernisation Agenda;

By signing the Charter VFU “Chernorizets Hrabar” undertook to contribute to the European Union's modernisation and internationalisation agenda in higher education, which includes 5 priorities:

  • Increasing attainment levels to provide the graduates and researchers Europe needs;
  • Improving the quality and relevance of higher education;
