EU educational programme for the university sector

Erasmus+ EU educational programme for the university sector
Since 2007, the HMT Leipzig has an ERASMUS University Charter (EUC) allowing it to be part of the ERASMUS+ programme for general and professional education, youth and sports. The programme started in January 2014 and replaced the programme for lifelong learning (LLP), "JUGEND IN AKTION" as well as several other international EU university programmes.
The Erasmus University Charter (EUC) is the general framework for all European co-operation activities. The charter sets the fundamental principles for participation and defines the minimum requirement a university has to respect.

The following measures are financially supported by ERASMUS+

  1. Studies abroad for students (SMS)
  2. Internships abroad for students and graduates (SMP)
  3. Teaching Staff Mobility (STA)
  4. Staff Mobility (STT)


Please have a closer look at the right side of this page. There, you will find further and detailed information about all available measures.

In general, ERASMUS+ offers three instruments, which support the mobility of students:
  • Enrolment at a university abroad becomes easier (e.g. no tuition fees),
  • ERASMUS+ offers a monthly scholarship (the costs of a stay abroad cannot be covered completely by this grant)
  • ECTS (Credit Points) earned at the university abroad are accepted in most cases.

Study abroad or internship abroad?

The ERASMUS+ programme offers two possibilities to students: Either an internship in a company / a cultural institution or study abroad at one of the partner institutions.

All students have the right to get a full-length (twelve month) grant for an internship or academic studies abroad.
If you are interested in an internship or a study abroad, an application has to be sent to the International Office of the HMT Leipzig.


Further funding measures

The HMT Leipzig provides infrastructure for welcoming students and staff with disabilities or students with children. They can receive a partial payment for additional costs in the framework of the ERASMUS+-exchange.
