Par­tic­i­pa­tion Re­quire­ments

To participate in the Erasmus+ programme for studying abroad in Europe, you must meet certain requirements:

  • Enrollment at Humboldt University for full-time studies or as an auditor: at least two successfully completed university semesters at the time of the start of the stay.
  • Existing bilateral agreement between your faculty or institute and the partner university.
  • Motivation and willingness to perform (see application requirements for your field of study)
  • Good academic performance - the minimum requirements for the grade point average may vary depending on the subject, always check with your Erasmus+ faculty coordinator in advance.
  • ausreichende Sprachkenntnisse der Unterrichtssprache im Gastland. In der Regel benötigen Sie ein Niveau von B2/C1 nach dem Gemeinsamen Europäischen Referenzrahmen. Sufficient language skills in the language of instruction in the host country. Usually, you need a level of B2/C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference. A (chargeable) B2/C1 language test can be taken after registration at the HU Language Center. However, note that some partner universities may also require other language certificates, such as the TOEFL test. Special conditions may apply for these tests, and higher costs may be incurred.

​You apply for an exchange place through your faculty or institute. Please observe the respective application and selection criteria. Bear in mind that there is no entitlement to an exchange place - allocation is competitive according to the published selection criteria. Some processes are highly competitive; it's best to seek advice from your coordinator for a better assessment. If the demand for exchange places exceeds the contractually agreed exchange quota in the respective study subject, the allocation is based on a performance ranking (grades, language, motivation, intercultural competence, semester of study).

If your application is successful, you will be nominated by your study programme coordinator at the host university.

For advice on exchange opportunities in your field of study, selection and preparation for your stay, it is best to contact your study programme coordinator directly.

All important rights and obligations that are relevant for you when participating in the Erasmus+ programme can be found in the Erasmus+ Erasmus student charter, which you will also receive with your funding documents.
