The LLP/ERASMUS Programme
The LLP/Erasmus programme
The LLP/Erasmus Programme (formerly known as Socrates Programme) is Europe’s education programme and 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: to promote lifelong learning, encourage access to education for everybody and help people acquire recognised qualifications and skills. In more specific terms, LLP/Erasmus seeks to promote language learning and to encourage mobility and innovation.
A key feature of Europe, which is often mentioned, is its diversity. This is particularly true 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 the quest for quality. Together we can be stronger and more creative.

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 Freiburg in order to assess their English language competence.
You should send us your study proposal as early as possible. Tell us 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 intend to take are already full, etc.).
Please note that students from a university with which the English Department at Freiburg University has an agreement will be given priority.
German as a foreign language
If your German is not sufficient enough to take courses at Freiburg University you are invited to visit the following website: http://portal.uni-freiburg.de/sli/sprachen/Deutsch
