Erasmus+ is a European Union programme named after Erasmus of Rotterdam, a humanist with a universal European education in his time.
Central components are the recognition of academic achievements abroad using the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and financial support for exchange students. With the signing of the ERASMUS Student Charta the obligation to adhere to the corresponding quality standards arises.
This can be used to support study visits, internships abroad as part of the course of study, teaching stays and further training of general university staff. The Erasmus programme is open to all students studying regularly at a participating university. The same applies to teaching and administrative staff. A condition, however, is that the sending and the receiving university have a corresponding bilateral agreement.
In an ERASMUS + Strategy Statement, Landshut University of Applied Sciences has stated its intention to continuously expand international activities and partnerships.
The main objective of the programme is to enhance the employability of students by promoting their mobility. At the same time, it aims to promote the development of the European Research Area by encouraging the mobility of scientific staff.
With the Erasmus+ programme you have the unique opportunity to spend 2 to 12 months of study or internship in another European country and receive financial support. More information under Funding Opportunities.
If you would like to receive funding for studying abroad, you will first discuss your choice of subjects with your international faculty coordinator and conclude a Learning Agreement. Further information can be found in the corresponding guide. The Landshut University of Applied Sciences is responsible for the award of Erasmus study places. All important information on the application process can be found here.
A Learning Agreement must also be signed for funding during the internship. Further information on this can be found in the relevant guidelines.
