    The Erasmus programme has made a significant contribution to mobility in European higher education, enabling almost 3 million students and 300,000 academic staff to be mobile within the borders of Europe since 1987. In the paper, we deal with Erasmus mobility flows, in particular Erasmus Student mobility for studies (SMS), between 32 European countries in the last Erasmus phase (from 2007/08 to 2010/11). For this purpose we used program R for statistical analysis and Pajek program for analysis of networks. The data was conducted from official European Commission website on Erasmus-Statistics. First, we provided some general overview on Erasmus mobility trends and then we defined Erasmus SMS network. Network analytic methods revealed 3 groups of countries: good importers and exporters (Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Portugal), good importers only (Denmark, Finland, Sweden, United Kingdom and Ireland) and good exporters only (Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Czech Republic and Poland). Based on our results further research can be done.
