Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Studies

ERASMUS+ is the European Union seven-year action programme for transnational cooperation in Europe (2014-20).

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) acts as the National Agency for Erasmus+ higher education cooperation in Germany.

In addition to the programmes for Europe (KA103), we are now able to support periods abroad at select partner universities in Russia (KA1017).

Key objectives of the Erasmus programme:

  • Increasing outgoing mobility
  • Facilitating credit recognition
  • Providing transnational studies
  • Improving language proficiencies

  • Swiss-European Mobility Programme

    Following the Swiss referendum on mass immigration in February 2014, the country’s participation in the Erasmus+ programme has been temporarily suspended. Swiss universities can therefore no longer receive EU-funding, but continue to take part in student and staff exchange within the scope of existing institutional partnerships.

    This exchange is in a large part facilitated by the Swiss-European Mobility Programme(SEMP). Students, teachers and staff can thus still apply for mobility contributions for exchange programmes with a university in Switzerland. You find further information at or you can enquire at the International Office.

    How to apply?

    Please proceed as normal by using our online application form, remember the relevant deadlines, and simply pick your desired university in the menu. We will send you details after (if) you were selected for a place at one of our Swiss partner institutions. A major difference to Erasmus+ grants is that financial contributions will be paid directly by your host university in Switzerland. The subsidy for exchange students currently ranges from 330 to 390 Euro/month. You should find the current rates on the website mentioned above.

  • Visas for Turkey

    German citizens need a valid visa for any period of study in Turkey that is longer than three months. In this case you need to apply for a Erasmus Learning Residence Permit as soon as possible after your arrival. Please consult the Erasmus coordinator at your Turkish host university.

    Foreign national students please contact the Turkish embassy in Berlin to clarify whether a visa is required.

    Further details and other info around your stay in Turkey can be found here [de].
