Erasmus / Direct Exchange (UK)

The application deadline for outgoing students during the academic year 2023/24 is January 31, 2023.

The department welcomes applications from students with sociology as their first or second discipline. Complete applications should be submitted to the Erasmus coordinator Gabi Bodmeier via email as a single PDF file with the subject line "Erasmus Application 2023/24".

Applicants should consult the webpage of the Erasmus office for all further details.

A recent outgoing student from the JFKI has compiled a very helpful application guide for interested applicants (Eleonore Neumann, July 2016). The guide is available in German and English.

Direct Exchange (UK)

As a result of the Brexit referendum and the resulting process of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union, Freie Universität Berlin's British partnerships will run through the Direct Exchange program beginning in the academic year of 2023/24 and will no longer be part of the Erasmus+ Europe program.

Please note: The application deadline for the academic year 2023/24 is November 8, 2022.
