Theory part shows main features of student mobility programme and its connection with concepts of interculturalism and intercultural learning. This qualitative research was conducted on a sample of twelve participants, six Slovak students and six Erasmus international students at Univesity of Žilina in Slovakia. The data was collected using semi-structured interviews. The results show that mobility stimulates students´ positive attitudes toward other cultures and influences development of intercultural competence and sensitivity. Also, cultural and linguistic diversity facilitate students´ intercultural learning.
