About Erasmus+

The ERASMUS+ Programme is the action scheme of the European Union to support cooperation and mobility in education, covering both an intra-European as well as an international dimension.
The Programme has an overall financial envelope of 14.8 billion EUR of the EU Budget for the period 2014-2020. The programme covers the sub-programmes Comenius (school education), Erasmus (higher education), Erasmus Mundus (international higher education), Leonardo (vocational training), Grundtvig (adult education), Youth in Action (youth) and Sport (in particular mass sports).

Swiss universities are not engaged in the ERASMUS+ programme (Mobility, Key Action I). However, as part of the Swiss-European Mobility Program, the Swiss government has provided appropriate funds to conduct an exchange of students, teachers and administration staff. This transitional scheme applies until 2020, the end of ERASMUS+ and will continue with the beginning of the new ERASMUS+ programme from 2021.

The University of Freiburg has been very successful with its involvement in the ERASMUS+ programme. Study mobility is organised by the EU Office in cooperation with a number of ERASMUS+ coordinators in the individual departments.

ERASMUS+ at the University of Freiburg

Around 50 academic subjects at the University of Freiburg are involved in the ERASMUS+ programme. The departments have concluded inter institutional agreements with more than 400 European partner universities in over 30 countries and offer students more than 1,700 spots to study abroad.

In addition to that, different departments participate in the ERASMUS+ Programme Mobility with Partner Countries beyond Europe. Further information can be found here.

All departments involved in the ERASMUS+ Programme at the University of Freiburg have appointed ERASMUS+ departmental coordinators who are responsible for the selection and care of ERASMUS+ students.

ERASMUS+ study visits and ERASMUS+ mobility grants for students are founded on inter-institutional agreements between the University of Freiburg and its ERASMUS+ partner universities. At department level, the agreements determine the number of exchange students, the length of stay and the requirements for standards of study and language.
