Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Studies

ERASMUS+ is the European Union action programme for transnational cooperation in Europe. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020, combining previous schemes for lifelong learning, youth and sport along with higher education programmes.

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), which acts as National Agency on this behalf, coordinates the programme in Germany.

The awarding of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) by the European Commission is a prerequisite for a funding by the respective National Agency. As a holder of this Charter, HSZG is entitled to be part of the ERASMUS+ programme.

For further information please see the website of the European Commission. Information and advice on all ERASMUS+ mobility schemes can also be obtained directly from the German Academic Exchange Service [German].

  • 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

    You need a valid visa for any period of study in Turkey that is longer than three months. The application procedure requires the submission of a certificate confirming that the financing of your stay is guaranteed. Further details and other info around your stay in Turkey can be found here [de].
