Promoting international exchange


Established in 1987, the EU Erasmus education programme provides funding to enable the European and world-wide mobility of students, doctoral students, university teachers and staff and international cooperation projects.

The Programme for Higher Education of the European Union

The academic year 2021/22 will see the start of the next generation of Erasmus+, providing flexible funding and addressing a wider number of issues. The seven-year program places a focus on the topics of inclusion and equal opportunity, digital change, the funding of the European Green Deal and increasing participation of young people in the democratic process.

33 countries will take part as “programme countries”. The 27 EU Member States will be joined by Iceland, Liechtenstein, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey. Great Britain has left the programme.

Participating institutions can also enter partnership and cooperation agreements with international partners from third countries.

Erasmus+ at the University of Bonn

The University of Bonn has participated in the Erasmus+ programme for higher education since its inception in 1987. Our faculties maintain partnerships with almost 300 universities both within and outside Europe. Over 560 Bonn students and doctoral students, between 40 and 50 members of the teaching staff and an increasing number of administrative and support staff take part in the Erasmus+ programme every year. In return, some 300 international students come to the University of Bonn through the Erasmus+ programme. The University of Bonn also takes part in Erasmus Mundus master’s degree programmes and cooperation projects.

The University has set itself the target of increasing mobility and participation in cooperation projects in the next Erasmus+ programme generation.

The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education

The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education outlining the principles of the programme and signed by the Rector of the University of Bonn provides the basis for our participation in the Erasmus+ programme. It enables the University of Bonn to participate in all its key actions and requires it to comply with the Erasmus+ principles. The Erasmus+ programme is implemented on the central level by the International Office and by Erasmus departmental coordinators in the individual faculties.
