Abstract:The ERASMUS Programme is the world’s most successful student mobility programme. However, it has been encountering difficulties to successfully address all student groups. The scientific debates about the participation in this programme have mostly focused on the impact of barriers and motivations on students’ decision to go abroad. These have frequently identified that students coming from a low socio-economic background (low SES) perceive the participation in the ERASMUS Programme as a rather luxurious study experience, which does not fit their socio-economic setting. Yet, the role the implementation has in determining students’ participation has not been thoroughly investigated. The aim of this paper is to address this scientific gap by investigating to what extent the implementation of the programme provides fair access to low SES students. The paper studies the ERASMUS implementation at the University of Münster, Germany (WWU), by comparing its implementation at the Law and Economics Departments of this university. The aim is to provide insights into the ERASMUS implementation strategies of the WWU, by taking a closer look at the ERASMUS practices in two of its biggest departments. This paper delivers some interesting findings regarding the relationship between the ERASMUS implementation and students’ participation.
