Erasmus+ for Studying Abroad

Erasmus+ gives students the opportunity to study in another European country and broaden their linguistic and academic horizons, as well as their cultural competencies.

Students can be funded for a semester abroad from two to twelve months at a partner university, including up until their PhD. All students abroad at a European or partner university associated with the programme will automatically receive an Erasmus+ scholarship.

On this website, you can find information for funding Erasmus+ study semesters.

Erasmus+ Internships

ERASMUS also funds internships for students at a guest institution in the EU (excluded are institutions that manage EU programmes, as well as diplomatic posts for the home country of the student). Furthermore, a limited number of internships outside of the EU based on a “first-come, first serve” policy can also be funded.

Students can gain valuable work experience in an international environment, along with key competencies like communication and cooperation skills, knowledge and an openness for other cultures and markets.

Students can receive funding for both mandatory and voluntary internships for a period from two to twelve months.

The programme offers students the following benefits: funding is determined by KOOR - Erasmus Services BW for the corresponding project year.

  • Monthly grant depending on the country group
  • EU internship contract between the university, company and student
  • Support in preparing for the stay abroad
  • Assistance during the internship through the contact person from the home university and in the company
  • Recognition of workload completed abroad
