The deadline for the application period of the winter semester of the same year ends at the 15th of February and at the 2nd of May for the sommer semester of the upcoming year!

Main date for the allocation of ERASMUS+ places is the winter semester of each year. If all places of one host university are allocated in the winter semester, there will be no open places in the summer semester.


ERASMUS+ stands for "European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students". This is an academic exchange program was brought into being by the EU. The idea behind it is to give as many students as possible the option of a stay abroad for at most two semesters in an european country. Generally every regular imatriculated student at our faculty has the option to participate in the ERASMUS+ program. For more detailed information please read the the German webpage or contact our Student Exchange/ ERASMUS office.

The coursework and examination grades which you effected at the foreign university will be admit at your home university after a verification and after they were classified as equivalent. Therefor you should require an agreement already before your stay abroad in the procedural framework of the application proceedings with your Erasmus coordinator of our faculty.

Experience so far shows that the best possinle time for the study abroad of your study is the first or secound semester of the master programme. The reasons are:

  • good technical requirements after the completion of foundational courses of the bachelor programme,
  • increased flexibility in choices of courses offered in the master programmes compared with the bachelor programme,
  • sufficient offering of english taught courses in the master programme.
