Erasmus+ Programme

Erasmus+ represents one of the success stories of the European Union. Since 1987, it funds mobilities of students, professors and university employees. Until 2020, round about two million students will have benefited from the Erasmus+ programme.

Placements for the Erasmus+ programme are coordinated by the faculty coordinators. The International Office also provides general information about programme partners, partner institutions, and contact details.

Key facts about Erasmus+

  • numerous partner universities in Europe
  • Exchange possible in Bachelors' and Masters' programmes as well as in doctoral studies
  • one or two semesters (depending on the number and occupancy of places at the partner university)
  • grants available
  • support with organisational and academic supervision
  • a waiver of tuition fees at the partner university
  • academic credit transfer of your work abroad
