Erasmus+ is an education program involving approximately 30 European countries. Its main objective is to build up a Europe of Knowledge and thus provide a better response to the major challenges of this new century.

Diversity is a key feature of Europe – especially in the area of education, where systems and practices vary enormously from one country to another. This diversity is a source of enrichment for everyone and offers fertile ground for innovation and creativity. Erasmus+ promotes lifelong learning, provides access to education for all, and helps people acquire internationally recognized qualifications and skills. On a more fundamental level, Erasmus+ encourages language learning and mobility. Together, we are stronger.

Information for Incoming Erasmus Students in 2019

Welcome to the University of Freiburg’s English Department!

First of all, don’t miss the International Office’s welcome week.

The mandatory session for course registration offered by the English Department will take place on Monday, April 15th 2019 at 2pm in room 1019.

Study Proposal

You should send us your study proposal as early as possible. Tell us which courses you intend to take and explain how much you have done in English at your home university. This will prevent disappointments (e.g. the courses you want are already full, etc.).

Please note that the English Department’s course catalog for the winter semester is available by the end of May. The course catalog for the summer semester is available in February.

Students from a university with which the University of Freiburg’s English Department has an agreement will be given priority.

Free Movers and Participants in Other Exchange Programs

We recommend that all students who are non-native speakers of English take a test before studying English at the University of Freiburg, in order to assess their English-language competence.


German as a Foreign Language

If your level of German is not sufficient enough to take courses outside of the English Department at the University of Freiburg, you are invited to visit the Language Teaching Centre (SLI)'s website.

The SLI offers a wide range of courses in German (and many other languages as well).
