Nowadays, we do not consider concepts from a single point of view but with an interdisciplinary approach. Researchers working in different domains treat concepts from multiple perspectives by cooperating in a scientific discipline. Educational sciences, like other areas of science, have adopted this interdisciplinary approach. Intercultural education and multicultural education is one of the best applications of the interdisciplinary approach in the domain of education. Erasmus exchange programme has particularly contributed to cross-cultural education. This study aims at analyzing studies that have investigated these contributions. We think that cross- and multicultural studies from different countries are important to have a clear and comprehensive vision. To this end, we reviewed studies in literature examining the effects of Erasmus exchange programme on cross-cultural education. We interpreted the results of these studies by qualitative research techniques and made suggestions for further studies. Consequently, it is a clear fact that exchange programmes are useful and students have a chance to communicate interculturally.

We współczesnym podejściu do koncepcji edukacyjnych uwzględnia się różnorodne aspekty interdyscyplinarne. Naukowcy działający w różnych dziedzinach rozważają koncepcje edukacyjne na wielu płaszczyznach, współpracując w ramach swojej dziedziny nauki. Pedagogika, podobnie jak inne obszary nauki, również dostosowuje się do tych trendów. Edukacja międzykulturowa jest jednym z najlepszych rozwiązań w ramach interdyscyplinarnego podejścia do edukacji, a program wymiany studentów Erasmus szczególnie przyczynia się do jej rozwoju. W artykule zaprezentowano badania wpływu wymiany międzynarodowej w ramach programu Erasmus na edukację. Badania obejmowały różne kraje uczestniczące w programie, co miało ukazać rzetelny obraz badanej dziedziny. W tym celu analizie poddano dostępną literaturę, stosując odpowiednie techniki badania jakości, zinterpretowano wyniki oraz sformułowano wnioski i sugestie odnośnie do dalszych badań. Rezultat końcowy potwierdził, że programy wymiany studentów mają ogromny wpływ na edukację międzykulturową oraz dają możliwość międzynarodowej komunikacji interkulturowej studentów z różnych krajów.
