In the time of intensified globalization and internationalization, student mobility is considered an integral part of the European education system. One of the main and most wide-reaching student mobility programmes is Erasmus, whose goal is to connect all higher education institutions within the EU. It provides students with an opportunity to study at a large number of European universities and to familiarize themselves with different teaching methods and techniques used in various academic and cultural environments, as well as to exchange knowledge with students from other countries, which are only some of positive elements that the European Union provides students when it comes to education and European education policies. The main goal of this thesis was to analyse specific experiences of students from the University of Zagreb, who took part in the Erasmus international student exchange programme. For the purpose of writing the thesis, 14 interviews were conducted with students from various faculties of the University of Zagreb, and the final sample included students from the fields of humanities, social and natural sciences. The results have shown that most students from the University of Zagreb learned about the Erasmus programme through their friends’ experiences and social media, as well as that adjusting to their new surroundings did not pose a problem, which was to be expected as one of the major motivations for the respondents’ participation in the Erasmus programme was meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. National identity within the context of self-identification has shown to be very evident with the respondents. Finally, it is important to point out that all the respondents consider themselves citizens of Europe.
