Studying for a Europe Without Borders
Erasmus +, which stands for "European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students," was introduced with the aim of increasing academic mobility and thus to make it possible for as many students as possible to complete at least part of their studies abroad in another European country and learn another language.
Advantages of an Erasmus+ Study Stay
- Academic recognition of qualifications obtained abroad
- Tuition fees waived at the host university
- Funding for additional costs that arise due to being abroad
- Assistance with preparations (academic, language, organizational)
- Preparation for future employment in a Europe without borders
- You can study in the United Kingdom in the academic year 2023/24 via the Erasmus program.
- From the summer semester onwards, students can apply for the "Green Travel Support" if they travel in a sustainable manner. See the FAQ for further information on this.
- Erasmus+ supports equal opportunities and inclusion. Students in exceptional circumstances can apply for an additional grant of 250 euros per month. This applies to students who are disabled or have a chronic illness or have one of more children and would take them on the study abroad placement. Students from a non-academic background and working students will also receive a 250 euro bonus each month if they meet the requirements. See our FAQ for further information on this.
