A snapshot of ESC’s implementation and needs

The survey provided an overview of awareness levels around the card in higher education institutions, focusing on

  • gathering information on its current deployment in Erasmus+ Programme countries;
  • identifying obstacles encountered that might hinder a country’s full deployment of the card;
  • understanding the experience and perception of the ESC among key stakeholders, to drive future improvements

What we asked

With the latest survey we wanted to ask specific questions which addressed the needs and experience most relevant to you.

Students/cardholders (81%) were asked about their experience with using the ESC, their needs and preferences for services accessed through physical and digital cards.
IT project managers (2%) responded to questions related to technical requirements of the ESC and about potential obstacles encountered while implementing the ESC in their institution.

International Relations Officers (11%) and, management staff, administrators, heads of unit, and project coordinators, among others (6%) were asked about the ESC management within their institution and about on-campus services offered via the ESC.

The highest response rates were from France, Greece, and Latvia.

Join us in 2024!

As shown by this year survey, the ESC is an ongoing process, and we are constantly aiming at expanding and onboarding new users to the ESC community.

We would like to remind you that only card issuers (e.g., Higher Education Institutions, student unions or other student groups) can register to the ESC-Router (ESC-R).
