The Erasmus Programme
Erasmus+ is an education programme that involves around 30 European countries. Its main objective is to build up a Europe of Knowledge and thus provide a better response to the major challenges of this new century.
Diversity is a key feature of Europe – especially in the area of education, where systems and practices vary enormously from one country to another. This diversity is a source of enrichment for everyone and offers fertile ground for innovation and creativity. Erasmus promotes lifelong learning, provides access to education for all, and helps people acquire internationally recognised qualifications and skills. On a more fundamental level, Erasmus encourages language learning and mobility. Together, we are stronger.

Free movers and participants in other exchange programmes
We recommend that all students who are non-native speakers of English take a test before studying English at the University of Freiburg, in order to assess their English-language competence.
You should send us your study proposal as early as possible. P which courses you intend to take and explain how much you have done in English at your home university. This will prevent disappointments (e.g. the courses you want are already full, etc.).
Please note that the English Department’s course catalogue for the winter semester is available by the end of May. The course catalogue for the summer semester is available in February.
Students from a university with which the University of Freiburg’s English Department has an agreement will be given priority.
German as a foreign language
If your level of German is not sufficient enough to take courses at the University of Freiburg, you are invited to visit the Language Teaching Centre (SLI)’s website.
The SLI offers a wide range of courses in German (and many other languages as well).
