"Since Erasmus has been made available to countries outside the European Union 30 years ago in the spirit of building bridges and promoting people-to-people contacts, Indian students have consistently been among the top beneficiaries of this scholarship," he said. "Europe is an excellent destination for Indian students. European universities offer top-ranking education and research in a safe and culturally-stimulating environment. Being an Erasmus student will be an unforgettable, enriching experience and it will significantly improve the student's later career chances," he added.
