Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility
In the year 2014 the European Union launched the Erasmus+ program in order to enhance exchange between members of Higher Education
institutions in Europe and the rest of the world. Since then GJU has established several partnerships with distinguished universities all over Europe.
The Erasmus+ program provides GJU undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one semester at one of our partner universities listed below. The program supports you with a monthly scholarship that covers living expenses as well as a travel allowance.
You will have to follow a full semester workload of classes (around 30 ECTS) in your field at the host university. Please notice that only 6CH can be transferred to your GJU study plan after the mobility due to GJU regulations at this point of time.
The mobilities at the universities below cannot be counted as part of the German Year.
The application deadline for mobilities in the Second Semester 2016/17 has already passed. We hope to be able to offer more mobilities in the First Semester 2017/18.
Who can apply?
Generally all undergraduate students who have spent at least 3 semesters at GJU (at the time of the beginning of the mobility) can apply to participate in Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility. Some host universities accept graduate students. Nevertheless most of our partnerships concentrate on specific study fields only.
All partner universities require proficiency in English (B2).
