General information regarding the application procedure

a.) Am I eligible for an application?

Applications are possible for BA-, MA-, and teacher training students. The date of your application will have no effect on the nomination process, as long as the application is summited in time – i.e. first come, first serve does not apply! 


b.) How do I apply?

Two steps need to be considered in order to register:

1. Set up an application in Mobility Online. Mobility Online is the online tool in which applications can be created and are administered. In the process of creating your application, you will be asked to upload your application documents.  

2. After successful registration you then need to apply directly via e-mail to the Erasmus-Coordinator for Outgoing-Students at the Department of Philosophie: Ass.-Prof. Dr. Olivier Ribordy, MA ( Submit your application documents here as well.


c.) What documents do I need to attach to my application?

Documents needed are a CV, transcript of records, language certificate*, a letter of motivation (2 pages at most) and proof of identity (passport, identity card, no driver's licence).

*About the Language Certificate:

A language certificate is needed for all applications to non-German universities. For Italian, Spanish, French and English speaking countries a level of at least B1 or B2 in the respective language is typically needed. Concerning our Eastern and Northern European partner universities a good grasp of English will suffice. You can find information about each university's required language level in the information on the relevant Erasmus Agreement in Outgoing Portal.


d.) Which partner universities can I apply for?

Applications are possible for up to three different universities (please make sure to include your preferences in your letter of motivation).

An overview over our partner universities can be found here: Liste der Studienorte (pdf) and Mobility Online Portal.
