Erasmus / Direct Exchange (UK)

Students have numerous opportunities to study abroad. Program administrators will regularly inform students about Freie Universität’s worldwide direct exchange program as well as other scholarship opportunities. The Erasmus coordinator of the JFKI is prepared to advise students on various European exchange opportunities.

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

The department welcomes applications from students with political science as their first or second discipline. Complete applications should be submitted to the main office via email as a single PDF file (if possible) with the subject line "Erasmus Application 2023/24". Applicants should consult the webpage of the Erasmus office for 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.
