Applying for the ERASMUS+ Programme

Interested in studying in Britain or Ireland for one semester or a whole academic year?

There are five British and four Irish universities that currently receive Erasmus students from RUB's English Department. In Great Britain, there is Cardiff University, the University of Hull, Newcastle University, the University of Nottingham and Leeds Trinity University. In Ireland, there is the University College Cork, the National University of Ireland Galway, the University of Limerick and the Institute of Technology Tallaght Dublin.

As a standard, students leave for their exchange in the winter semester, normally around September. It is either possible to stay for one term (3-4 months) or to stay for the full academic year (8-9 months). The mobility scholarship granted by the Erasmus programme varies – usually between 250 and 400 Euros per month. Updated information about the current scholarship is accessible via the website of the International Office.

If you are interested in taking part in the exchange, please complete the application form and hand it in together with a printout of your "Leistungen" in CampusOffice at the Servicezimmer/Auslandsberatung (GB 6/57, please check the departmental homepage for office hours) or the Geschäftszimmer (GB 6/162, Mo-Fr 9:00am-13:00pm). Applications should not be sent by email. Although you should point out your preferences in your application, there can be no guarantee that you will be awarded a place at your desired destination. Instead, you may also be offered a place at another university. Please indicate in your application whether you want to stay the full academic year or one semester only.

Please note that applications for the Erasmus exchange can only be taken in once a year: all students who wish to attend one of the universities available via the programme need to apply until 11 January 2019. This is the deadline for all students who wish to start their exchange in the winter of that year. In the second part of the application process you may be invited to a personal selection interview shortly after the deadline.

Students will be informed of whether their application has been successful within a week of the interview. If you have any questions, please contact the "Auslandsberatung"
