Partner Program Semester Abroad
The Erasmus program, initiated by the European Commission, promotes student mobility with partner universities in the Erasmus area.
Under the Erasmus+ program, students of the University of Bremen can spend between 2 and 12 months on each study level (bachelor, master, PhD) studying their subject at one of our EU partner universities.
ERASMUS + fellows do not have to pay tuition fees at the European University during their semester abroad. Furthermore, they receive a mobility grant in three country categories from currently 490-600 Euro per month.
Students with special needs may apply for additional funds for their stay abroad. That affects students with a disabilty, students who travel with a child, students from a non-academic home as well as working students.
All information about the ERASMUS+ program can be found on the pages of the International Office.
If students receive a BAföG while in Germany, they will also receive BAföG while in a foreign country. For this purpose, a separate application must be submitted to the office responsible for the respective country .
The application should be submitted 6 months before the start of the stay abroad. With a more favorable tax base, it is quite possible that you will receive foreign BAföG, even though you were considered ineligible in Germany.
The mobility program PROMOS supports part-scholarships for a maximum of 3 months per study period (BA / MA) for study-related stays abroad outside the Erasmus area. PROMOS can also support internships, language courses and specialist courses outside of Europe.
For particularly good study achievements and social commitment, it is possible to apply for a scholarship from the DAAD. The scholarship database on the DAAD website lists a large number of possible scholarships.
Further scholarhips and funding opportunities are listed on the website of the International Office.
In addition, the Ministry of Education and Research offers a comprehensive scholarship database, called Scholarship Counseling.
Please note that sometimes there are very early application deadlines.
German citizens are granted an educational loan by the Federal Office of Administration and the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW), independently of BAFöG. Interest rates and repayment modalities are very beneficial. The application is on the official website.
