 Application forms are available through the Student Exchange Office of the Freie Universität Berlin.

Why use ERASMUS ?

  • no tuition at the exchange university;
  • ERASMUS grants for mobility;
  • both home and exchange university support
  • full credit transfer for courses completed abroad through ECTS (European Credit Transfer System)

The departments of the JFKI accept applications from students of all curricula and all phases of their studies. Deadlines for applications usually is January 31st (check the deadlines of the departments); nominations for one of the partner universities will be sent out subsequently.


The standard application documents comprise:

  1. The completed online application form available on the Erasmus portal.
  2. Current certificate of enrollment
  3. Transcript of all courses completed to date including records of achievement and marks
  4. Curriculum Vitae in table form
  5. Letter of motivation (English or German)

A language certificate is not required for the ERASMUS application. However, you should check the language requirement at the universiyt abroad you would like to apply to. If they require a language certificate, it is your responsibility to meet this requirement by the time you have to enroll at the host universiyt. Remember to check the enrollment deadline at the host university.

To increase your chances of receiving an exchange place, it is recommended to list three exchange priorities in the application form and motivation letter. Please make clear which departement at the JFKI you are applying through in the motivation letter. It is possible to apply through more than one department, but note that priority will be given to students who aim to take classes in the discipline they are applying through.
