ERASMUS and Cooperation Students 

Uni - outside

The EU established the ERASMUS Programme in 1987 to increase the mobility of European students, to strengthen the cooperation between European universities, and so further the integration of Europe.
All Bielefeld faculties maintain ERASMUS+ Cooperations with various European partner institutions. In addition to that, the Faculty of Sociology participates in the ERASMUS+ programme Mobility with Partner Countries beyond Europe. Find further information about -> Mobility beyond Europe.


Students who are officially nominated by their home university coordinators to the International Office of Bielefeld University will receive a mail with information in regard to the online registration.

We send out letters of admission a few weeks after having received the printout of the online registration, i.e. application of admission (Antrag auf Zulassung).

For more information please see the Information Sheet for Erasmus/Cooperation Programs in our -> Download Area.
