Other department applications: 

In general, applications are also possible under certain conditions, as the Department of Economics pursues the objective of enabling a maximum number of students to stay abroad. However, only those vacancies are allocated which are not claimed by students of economics. Since the bilateral agreements are usually only indirectly between the universities and directly between the subject areas, a binding commitment from the Erasmus coordinators of the partner universities is necessary. This results in the following procedure:

1. Please inform yourself about our partner universities

2. Contact us about the vacancies of your desired university for passing you a contact address.

3. By using this address, you can inquire at the partner university by e-mail whether students of different departments are accepted.

4. Attach an expression of the reply as a binding commitment by the partner university to your application documents and send it to erasmus@vwl.uni-freiburg.de

5. After checking the documents, we will offer you an exchange place. In addition, you will receive the necessary forms and information on how to proceed.

6. Since we can not allow for the examinations performed by applicants of different departments, please check with your departmental coordinator if your credits will be approved.
