During their studies, students of the HMT Leipzig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy get the opportunity to study abroad at a partner university with the ERASMUS+ programme for one or two semesters. Credits achieved abroad are credited.

Students of every field of study can apply for a scholarship. Apart from being enrolled at the HMT at the time of your stay abroad, you need to be in the third semester of studying at least.

To apply for ERASMUS+ you have to comply with the following requirements:
  • at least one year of study completed, regular enrolment at a German university
  • duration: one or two semesters (Bachelor/Master/PhD) a further grant is possible
  • host university: needs to be partner of the HMT and / or have an ERASMUS-Charter (ECHE)
  • Switzerland offers an own mobility programme from winter term 2014/15 onwards (Swiss European Mobility Programme)

What kind of support will I get?

  • exemption from both the host and home institutions' tuition fees
  • a monthly grant will be paid
  • Achieved ECPS will be accepted in most cases.
 ERASMUS+ grants for the academic year 2018/2019:
  • Group 1 (Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom): 450 Euro
  • Group 2 (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany,  Greece, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands,Portugal, Spain): 390 Euro
  • Group 3 (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Turkey): 330 Euro

Please consider that ERASMUS+ programmes are only supporting grants for your stay. They often cannot cover the entire expenses of a study stay abroad.
Think about the financing of your stay prior to your application. In most European cities average costs of living are higher than in Leipzig.
