Outgoing Students


1. Application


In order to apply and be accepted, students must take part in two mandatory Erasmus+ meetings. They will take place on:

November 28, 2018 at 6 pm in KG I, Room 1199


December 5, 2018 at 6 pm in KG I, Room 1119


The completed Erasmus+ application forms (Annahmeerklärung, CV, study proposal and study transcript) have to be handed in to the coordinator by January 25, 2018.

When students are accepted by Erasmus+, they will receive the partner university's own application forms in order to enroll.


2. The Programme


Erasmus+ is an organization designed to enhance and facilitate European student mobility. It is funded by the European Union and was established in 1987. The University of Freiburg's English Department has its own Erasmus division that has partner universities in England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Spain, Romania and Finland. The Erasmus co-ordinators will be happy to answer any questions you may have concerning the programme in general, how to apply, what to expect and consider etc. 

Of course there are other ways of studying in foreign countries. Going as a Erasmus student has several advantages, however. Erasmus+ is currently the most efficient, expansive, and renowned European exchange programme. Application procedures, especially in comparison to e.g. the DAAD programmes, are therefore relatively simple. Students who are part of Erasmus+ don't pay tuition, library fees, etc. at the partner university. In adddition, they receive a scholarship of around 50 euros a month. As far as accomodation goes, the partner university tries to find housing or provides you with a place in student residence. However, as the number of students continues to grow, this is no longer guaranteed. 

Thanks to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), course work done at foreign universities is accepted and validated at home. 

Erasmus+ at the English Department is geared towards students of English philology. Students with other majors, e.g. medicine, law, etc. can only be considered if there are no more English-major applicants and the partner university is willing to accept students from another field. This is the case because Erasmus+ agreements are made between departments, which causes problems with students who don't belong to the department that the agreement was set up with.

All Erasmus+ students are enrolled in the partner universities' undergraduate programmes which means that only courses equivalent to a "Proseminar" can be taken.
