Erasmus+ provides students with the opportunity to study abroad in another European country to widen their social and cultural competencies. They get to know a foreign academic system and benefit from different learning and teaching methods. Upon completion of the second year in their Bachelor’s (in the Master’s from the first semester onwards), students of every study cycle (Bachelor, Master, PhD) can spend between three and twelve months abroad, studying at one of HFBK’s many partner institutions.
By participating in the Erasmus+ programme, the students can benefit from:
- Mobility grant as a contribution to the costs for travel and subsistence during the period of study abroad
- No tuition fees at the host institution
- Support during the preparation of the study abroad period (cultural, linguistic, organisational)
- Academic recognition of the learning outcomes
- Additional support for students with children
- Additional support for students with disabilities
Our aim is to provide all HFBK students with an Erasmus+ experience. For organisational questions, please contact the International Office.
Application deadline for Erasmus exchanges in the winter semester 2024/25 and the summer semester 2025 is January 20, 2024.
At two information events on 29 November 2023 at 2 p.m. and on 10 January 2024 at 2 p.m. we will present the programme's procedure as well as its possibilities and opportunities.
Please apply by completing the online application form. After a successful application, you will receive a confirmation e-mail asking you to upload a letter of recommendation by an HFBK professor and a letter of motivation as one PDF into our cloud. Please make sure to name the PDF document according to this scheme: LastName_FirstName.pdf
- Students have to be matriculated at HFBK during their whole stay abroad.
- All students participating in the Erasmus programme are required to submit certain documents (e.g. the so-called Learning Agreement). Details will be communicated upon successful application by the International Office.
- The European Commission has made online linguistic support available for all 24 languages of the European Union. Taking the language test before and after the Erasmus stay is a requirement for all participating students.
- No automatic right to support exists.
- Erasmus mobilities can be supported entirely or partially with so-called zero-grants, i.e. without financial support.
- Mobility grants
The Erasmus+ Programme aims at promoting equity and inclusion by facilitating the access to participants with disadvantaged backgrounds and fewer opportunities compared to their peers. Because of that, parents and students with disabilities can receive additional funding to cover extra costs incurred during the period of study abroad. www.eu.daad.de/engagiert
