Cyprus has second highest rate of tertiary students from abroad in the EU

Cyprus is the country with the second highest rate of students from abroad enrolled in its universities, according to Eurostat.

Specifically, in 2017, out of the total 45,263 students enrolled in tertiary education in Cyprus, 23.1% (10,455) were from abroad.

In the EU, there were in total 1.7 million such mobile tertiary students coming from abroad (both from another EU Member State and from outside the EU) in 2017, a number which has increased by 22% since 2013.

Luxembourg was the country with the highest rate of mobile tertiary students coming from abroad with 46.7%.

Mobile tertiary students coming from abroad represented 8.1 % of all enrolled tertiary students in the EU in 2017. The shares differed among the Member States: the largest shares were observed in Luxembourg (47%), Cyprus (23%) and Austria (17 %), while the lowest were recorded in Croatia, Spain and Greece (all 3%).


Erasmus+: 193 000 mobile graduates at bachelor and master level in 2017

The Erasmus+ programme is a European Union student exchange programme, which supports students to spend part of their studies at another higher education institution abroad. In 2017, around 114,000 bachelor graduates and around 78,000 master graduates had benefited from this programme.

For Erasmus+ bachelor graduates, the main exchange destination country was Spain (21,300 graduates or 19% of total bachelor Erasmus graduates in the EU in 2017), followed by Germany (18,400 or 16%), the United Kingdom (12,400 or 11%), Italy (11,500 or 10%) and the Netherlands (10,900 or 10%). Together, these five Member States were the destination of two thirds of all bachelor Erasmus graduates in 2017.

For Erasmus master graduates, France (20,500 or 26% of total master Erasmus graduates in the EU in 2017) was the most frequent country chosen, followed by Italy (15,000 or 19%) and Germany (14,600 or 19%).
