We are delighted that you are interested to study at our department within the framework of the Erasmus program.

We have a winter and a summer semester. The winter semester usually begins in mid- to late October and ends in the first weeks of February the following year. The summer semester usually begins in mid-April and lasts until mid-July.
The application to the Erasmus+ program has two steps: the first one is at the home university, the second one at the host university of your choice. Therefore, please first contact the Erasmus coordinator and/or the international office at your home university for the details about the application.

Once you are nominated by your home institution, you should also get in touch with our departmental Erasmus+ coordinator, Dr. Stefanie Mallon (

Please note that many of our departmental courses are offered in German. However, we also usually offer some courses in English. Furthermore, we will be glad to assist you in finding other suitable study opportunities, including an independent study in English, or matching you with tutors who are eager to practice their English skills and help you to improve your German.
