During the week of the 24th -28th of February in 2020, Erasmus+ alumni held five Erasmus+ information sessions at three different public and private universities in Rwanda. Two sessions were for students, while the remaining were for staff of Higher Education Institutions (HEI). In total, the sessions were attended by about 550 local students as well as 45 HEI staff members.
Each of the sessions lasted about two to three hours covering the following topics:
