Dear students,

We are pleased to hear that you are interested in staying abroad! There are many reasons to study abroad within the ERASMUS-program:

  • Acquired certificates abroad are accepted in your German course of studies.
  • You will improve your foreign language skills or acquire new ones.
  • You will collect important advantages for your curriculum vitae.
  • You will make contacts and collect ideas for your Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis.
  • The Erasmus funding includes the study fees in the host country and a monthly financial support. In general it includes a free participation in a language course as well.
