    Please note: We accept applications and nominations from students at partner universities exclusively through our online portal Mobility-Online. Please do not send your nomination confirmation and application to Bonn via email.

    If a country or university is not listed in Mobility-Online, this usually means no Erasmus+ exchange agreement with the University has been signed. Please do not enter an incorrect university. Where in doubt, please contact the relevant Erasmus+ Departmental Coordinator.

    Language Requirements

    • Bachelor level: Particularly in most undergraduate/ bachelor programs, German is often the main language of instruction. Therefore, a minimum level of B1 in German is required for bachelor students.
    • Master level: However, graduate/ master courses are often taught in English. Here, a minimum level of English B2 is usually required.
