Within the framework of the Erasmus+ Program (the European Union's program for the promotion of student mobility) you have the opportunity to study at one of our partner universities or to complete an internship abroad.

When you finish your first academic year, you will not only be able to get to know the academic culture and teaching and research methods of your host university and discover new aspects and perspectives of your field of study, you will also be able to engage intensively with the culture of your host country and make new contacts and friends.


The Erasmus Program offers you

  • No tuition fees at the host university
  • Financial support for 3 to 12 months
  • Support from the subject coordinators, the international office, and in many cases through local mentoring programs

Contact Partner: Friederike von Horn, de Chair of Historical Pedagogy and Global Education
