Mobility in Europe - Erasmus

The Erasmus programme funds exchange semesters at one of UDE’s 300 European partner institutions, as well as work placements abroad within Europe. For more information, please click on the corresponding link.

Global mobility

Study abroad periods, work placements, final theses, language courses and subject-related courses can also be planned outside of Europe. These international mobility periods can be funded with the PROMOS and DUE-Mobil grants. You can find more information on the programme website.

Students pursuing a teaching qualification also have the option to apply for grants as foreign language assistants both within and outside Europe.
