The Erasmus+ Program supports students of the HfMDK who wish to study or do an internship in another European country. The university has concluded agreements with partner universities enabling student exchanges under the auspices of ERASMUS+.
In principle study at another European university under Erasmus+ is also possible, but must be agreed with the International Office in good time.
Students who participate in this exchange program and study at a partner university for a semester or for an academic year (at least 3 months, maximum 12 months), will enjoy the following benefits:
Students are eligible for funding more than once in each study cycle (bachelor, master, doctorate).
Detailed information can be found in the following paragraphs:
Erasmus+ allows students to study in one of the European Program Countries in any phase of their studies:
Financial support for students studying abroad under the Erasmus+ Program varies according to the cost of living in the country of destination (see “Programmländer“). From project year 2014 onward, the following minimum grants apply for the three groups of countries where students can study (SMS):
Erasmus+ interns will receive at least 100€ a month additionally, i.e. 550€ in Group 1, 490€ in Group 2 and 430€ in Group 3.
The selection of students who have applied to study at a partner university will be undertaken by that university. For this purpose students should submit not only an application form (available in the International Office but also a sample of their work (audio and/or video) as a quality assurance instrument. For more information on this please contact the International Office of the HfMDK.
You can obtain the application form and the Learning Agreement from the International Office.

For an ERASMUS study period in the academic year 2020/21 the closing date is February 15, 2020!
The European Commission provides an online language test for most European languages. It is compulsory for all students/graduates to do this test both after the selection/before the beginning of the mobility activity and after completing the period of study abroad. The result of the test is, however, not a selection criterion for funding through the Erasmus+ program and does not apply to native speakers.
There are also on-line language courses available for these languages. Every higher education institution receives a certain number of licenses, which it can pass on to the selected Erasmus+ outgoing students on condition that they have done the language test.
All those who have received funding under the auspices of an Erasmus+ mobility activity are obliged after completing the measure to write a report via the Mobility Tool Plus and to submit this together with the appropriate documentation (e.g. on the period of residence abroad).
Erasmus+ is intended to promote equal opportunities and inclusion. Therefore students from disadvantaged circumstances (in Germany this applies in the Erasmus+ Program to students who are single parents during their study abroad) and students with special needs are given easier access to the Program.
For useful information on universities with disabled access provided by the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education, please visit www.european-agency.org.
Students who take their child or children with them while studying abroad in a Program Country under the Erasmus+ Program and are single parents during the Erasmus+ Mobility activity may receive special funding as a one-off payment. The maximum level of monthly funding is stipulated for each of the three groups of countries.
The obligations and rights of students in the Erasmus+ Program are regulated by the Erasmus+ Student Charter which should be handed out to every student before he or she commences their period of study abroad.
