Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020, with organisations invited to apply for funding each year to undertake creative and worthwhile activities. Erasmus+ aims to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher education, adult education and the youth sector. It offers exciting opportunities for UK participants to study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad.The JAMU Theatre Faculty offers no accredited courses in foreign languages. Since the faculty is becoming more popular among international students thanks to the ERASMUS+ programme, a new English one-term curriculum called „Bridging East and West“ was introduced in the academic year 2008/2009 which enables integration of international students into lessons at the faculty and especially into practical theatre production projects, as the faculty perceives these projects to be one of its greatest strengths. The Erasmus Student Exchange Programme „Bridging East and West“ aims to create a space for student teams to work within the Central European cultural tradition and atmosphere.
Tuition style is given by the cooperative characteristics of this study programme. Students are admitted into particular departments according to their study specialization. International students work under the pedagogical guidance of a supervisor who is a director of the performance project and who helps them to shape the individual content of their study programme from the very beginning.
