Erasmus is an exchange program for Higher Education funded by the European Commission. It encompasses the entire European Union and, since 2014, any participating countries (and their universities). Erasmus allows students from universities, which have signed Erasmus bilateral agreements with Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu - National Louis University, to study at WSB-NLU for one or two semesters as part of their degree courses.
Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu- National Louis University has a number of exchange agreements with institutions all over the world. Students from these institutions are welcome to study at WSB-NLU within the framework of the Erasmus + Exchange Program. International students of WSB-NLU can also participate in this program and spend one or two semesters in one of WSB-NLUs partner universities all over the European Union (subject to completing the application process).
The academic, professional, social, personal and cultural benefits of participating in the Erasmus + program are magnificent. It can be a challenge to live far away from home and study in different country but from the other way it can offer you a opportunity to travel, meet new friends, to learn new cultures, study subjects that may be unique at your home university.

Courses taken at the receiving institution with its corresponding ECTS credits are treated equivalent with the list of courses available at the Nowy Sacz School of Business – National Louis University.
Before any student takes part in the mobility, he or she should plan his or her studies so that when the student returns, the completed courses are equivalent to the ones offered at home institution.
The student is obliged to deliver to the Dean of the faculty the list of credits (Transcript of records) along with ECTS grades and points obtained at the host university within 14 days. In the case of failure to pass the subject (receives the grade of 2.0) and thus fails to obtain the required number of ECTS points, the Dean of the University will give the student the possibility to pass the subject and to obtain the missing points after returning from his or her mobility.
In the event that the student neglects to complete the formalities of delivering the transcript of records with its corresponding ECTS points obtained at the host university within the prescribed period, the student is obliged to reimburse or to return the scholarship. If the deadline cannot be met due to the failure to receive the documentation from the host university, the student must report to the exchange coordinator.
