How to get started

If you are a student of one of our partner faculties and would like to study at our faculty you can apply at your home university for an Erasmus placement. If your application is successful your Erasmus coordinator will nominate you and thus let us know that you wish to come .

After your nomination you will be contacted by two different offices:

  • Erasmus Office of the University =  Institutional Erasmus Coordinator

Before applying for an Erasmus grant for Germany you should check if your language skills will be sufficient for studying in German. All our Bachelor courses are taught only in German. Part of our master courses are taught in English. But also there you have to meet the language requirements. For all courses (English or German) Erasmus students have to submit a proof of language skills on the level B1.

The Language Teaching Centre (SLI) of the University of Freiburg offers free of charge language courses (grammar/speaking/writing/regional studies) for Erasmus students. Registration for courses in winter semester opens mid September, registration for summer semester opens at the beginning of March.
