Exchange Semester - Erasmus | KLU


Erasmus is the perfect example of a European success story: more than 3 million students have participated since it started in 1987. In 2012, the Kühne Logistics University has been awarded the Erasmus University Charter of the European Union. For the period of 2014 - 2020 we hold the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.

Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Studies (SMS)

ERASMUS+ enables students to benefit educationally, linguistically, and culturally from the experience of learning in other European countries. Students get to know different academic systems in foreign universities and benefit from their learning and teaching methods.

  • Outgoing students may be awarded a small ERASMUS+ grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs incurred in connection with their study period abroad. The minimum stay is 90 days at the partner university.
  • ERASMUS+ students - whether or not they receive an ERASMUS grant - are exempted from paying fees for tuition, registration, examinations and access to laboratory and library facilities at the host institution.
  • The payment of any national grant or loan to outgoing students should be maintained during the ERASMUS+ study period abroad.
  • Students can expect full academic recognition from their home university for satisfactorily completed activities during the Erasmus mobility period, in accordance with the Learning Agreement.
