For the time of the university's "emergency operations" due to the Corona crisis, you are welcome to meet us online in virtual meeting rooms:
- Tuesday from 10 a.m.–11 a.m.: Advice on stays abroad within Europe (Erasmus+)
- Thursday from 10 a.m.–11 a.m.: Advice on stays abroad outside Europe
In addition, you are welcome to contact us by e-mail. If you would like to call us, please send a German telephone number and we will call you back.
The International Office is in close contact with partner universities worldwide. Since information related to the Corona crisis is updated on a daily basis, students planning a stay abroad in 2020 should regularly check their university e-mail account.
The Erasmus+ programme is a great way to gain valuable experience abroad by studying in another European country.
The programme offers several advantages, including:
- tuition fee exemption at the host university
- grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs (approx. 150–250 Euro per month)
- administrative support from both your home and host universities
- recognition of academic achievements in accordance with study agreements
- special support for students with accompanying children and students with special needs
Students can go abroad for 3 months minimum to 12 months maximum (including a complementary traineeship period, if planned). The same student may receive grants for studying or being trained abroad totalling up to 12 months maximum per each cycle of study (Bachelor, Master, PhD).
Students may be awarded an Erasmus+ EU grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs incurred in connection with their study period abroad. Erasmus+ students – whether or not they receive an Erasmus+ EU grant – are exempted from paying fees for tuition, registration, examinations and access to laboratory and library facilities at the host institution.
Please notice the requirements to take part in the programme:
- You must be enrolled in a degree programme at the University of Oldenburg (no exchange students!).
- You must have studied for at least one year before starting an exchange programme.
- You must be proficient in the language of instruction.
