Erasmus Partnerships and Institutional Partnerships

You have the opportunity to study a semester abroad either with the ERASMUS+ program or through a partnership of the department.

    ERASMUS+ & ERASMUS ICM (International Credit Mobility)

    The ERASMUS+ program of the EU enables students to study at a university within the EU for three to twelve months or to do an internship in the countries of the EU. Students are provided with both financial and organisational support during their semester abroad or their internship abroad. More about Erasmus+7.

    The new generation of Erasmus programs will be launched at the University of Bonn in the summer semester of 2022.

    The new Erasmus+ places its special focus on promoting equal opportunities and inclusion as well as sustainability. Therefore, additional financial support is available on the one hand for "green" travel, on the other hand for students with a GdB of 20 or more or chronic illnesses, for students who want to take their children with them to study abroad and from WS 2022/23 for working students and students from a non-academic background. Current and further information on this can be found at:

    Every year, the Department of Economics awards about 30 ERASMUS places at its partner universities:
