One million children born thanks to Erasmus Program

Erasmus connects Europe, literally. During more than 30 years of the program, nine million young people have gone abroad to study. Thanks to the European exchange program, one million children have already been born. This is an unexpected romantic side of this project.

This is the reality of a recent survey conducted by the European Parliament to monitor the results of the program to date.

Millions of university students have been exchanged over the past decades. By spending one or two semesters in that country, of course, such strong contacts will be established that we have a million more citizens in the European Union. This is a positive result, although reproduction is not the main purpose of the program. The million births have been calculated over the last ten years of the program.

However, children born with parents from other European countries logically bring with them certain problems. These were even mentioned in the plenary of the European Parliament.

The Czech Republic joined the program in 1998, and since then, thanks to Erasmus, almost 500,000 students have been studying at a foreign university.

The Czechs travel the most to Germany and France, then Great Britain and Spain, and the Scandinavian and Benelux countries are also popular. However, some even go to Bulgaria, Croatia or Cyprus. studying at a foreign university.

According to people, the biggest benefits of the program are, for example, communication in a foreign language, new life experiences, the development of independence, better employment in the labor market and breaking down prejudices.
