ERASMUS+ for Students – OUTGOING

The European Union’s ERASMUS+ education programme supports international exchange in the fields of education, youth and sports. Under this programme, students of the Würzburg University of Music not only have the opportunity to study or do an internship in one of the 33 programme countries, but also receive a financial grant in the form of a mobility allowance for their stay abroad. The programme countries include the 28 countries of the European Union as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Studies in Switzerland can be funded under the Swiss-European Mobility Programme (SEMP), which is similar to ERASMUS+.

Students can be funded under ERASMUS+ if they are regularly enrolled at the University of Music Wuerzburg and have already completed their first year of study. If you are interested in studying abroad, it is important to start planning as early as possible.

The team of the IO will gladly support you in answering all questions concerning ERASMUS+!

Study Abroad

Studying abroad at a European partner institution of the University of Music Wuerzburg can be funded by ERASMUS+ for at least 3 months and at most 12 months. If you are interested in studying at a university in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Norway, Switzerland or Turkey, which is currently not a partner university of the University of Music Wuerzburg, please contact the IO team. If possible, we will then sign an ERASMUS+ cooperation agreement with the respective university!

Funding

Students can receive ERASMUS+ funding for a total of 36 months during their university education. Students can be supported for 12 months per study cycle, i.e. in Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD programmes. Students in single degree programmes (e.g. state examination) can be supported for up to 24 months and additionally for 12 months in doctoral studies.

The internship can be completed at universities as well as in all public and private institutions. Only internships at the institutions of the European Union and all institutions managing EU programmes are excluded from funding as well as all national and diplomatic representations of the home or country of origin of the funding recipient and all UN institutions and their sub-organisations.

Internship opportunities can be found on the website erasmusintern.org, which was developed by students of the Erasmus Student Network (ESN).
