Erasmus Impact Study reveals: 1 million babies born to Erasmus couples since 1987
Jennifer Baker is joined by Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, spokeswoman of the European Commission, to discuss the main findings of the Erasmus Impact Study, published on 22 September.
The Erasmus Impact Study reveals that those who have studied abroad are less likely to experience long-term unemployment and that participation in the Erasmus study exchange programme increases job prospects for young people, Ahrenkilde Hansen states. Moreover, figures show that nearly one third of the students who participate in the programme meet their long-term partners while being on Erasmus. As a result, 1 million babies are likely to have been born to Erasmus couples since 1987, the spokeswoman of the European Commission claims.
