Erasmus+ Study

All students who are regularly enrolled at a German university can study at foreign partner universities with Erasmus+ in order to expand their professional, social and cultural skills and improve their career prospects. They get to know the academic system of these universities as well as their teaching and learning methods.

Application deadlines:

For stays in the acad. year 2022/23: 31.01.2022.

For stays starting in the spring/summer semester 2023 additionally: July 31, 2022 (only remaining places)

Note on the impact of the Corona pandemic on Erasmus mobility for studies

Please note that we are currently accepting and processing applications for a semester/year abroad in the Erasmus programme and forwarding them to the host universities as usual.

However, admission for a semester/year abroad is currently always subject to the provison that circumstances permit the stay abroad and study at the host university.

Possible factors in this regard are:

  • Restrictions concerning departure from Germany
  • Restrictions on entry into the host country
  • Travel warnings of the Federal Foreign Office (no stays in areas for which a travel warning exists!)
  • availability of the host university for Erasmus periods (Some host universities are currently not accepting Erasmus students and are still deciding when this will be possible again. If you are applying for a university that will certainly not accept students for the period you have chosen, we will inform you).
  • It is possible that studying at the host university can only take place virtually (i.e. by attending online courses).

As this is a very dynamic situation, it is not possible to assess all circumstances on a long-term basis. It is therefore possible that Erasmus study periods have to be cancelled at short notice.

Advantages of studying abroad with Erasmus+

  • academic recognition of study achievements abroad
  • exemption from tuition fees at the receiving institution
  • financial support as a contribution to travel and subsistence costs abroad
  • support in preparing the mobility (cultural, linguistic, organisational)
  • special needs support for students who take their children abroad
  • special needs support for students with disabilities

Rights and obligations

The rights and obligations of students in the Erasmus+ program are regulated in the "Erasmus+ Student Charter", which is handed out to each student before the start of the stay abroad.

The Student Charter can also be found here:

Erasmus+ Student Charter

For example, all participants in an Erasmus+ mobility measure are obliged to prepare a report on the online tool of the EU Commission after completion of the measure and to submit evidence of eligibility (e.g. on the duration of the stay).

Erasmus+ Partner Institutions

In 2021, a new program generation in Erasmus+ has started with new funding guidelines.

At the same time, however, funding projects from the old generation will continue until 2023.

Generally, mobilities starting from winter semester 2022/23 onwards will be funded under the guidelines of the new program generation. The guidelines of the old generation only apply to stays in the UK.
