Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (KA171)

Erasmus+ Mobility with Partner Countries opens up the Erasmus+ programme to the world, with a particular focus on mobility to the University of Freiburg from outside of the European member countries. This mobility programme for students, university staff and teachers extends beyond Europe and integrates higher education institutions worldwide into the Erasmus+ programme.

Parallel to the classic Erasmus+ exchange programme within Europe (“programme countries”), the focus here is on the exchange of individual students, staff and teachers (incoming and outgoing). Participants benefit from a monthly grant as well as an allowance for travel expenses. Funding is also available for green travel and for participants with fewer opportunities.

As with the Erasmus+ programme with European partner universities, the Erasmus+ cooperation with non-European partner universities involves exchange agreements with select partner universities. However, funding for this programme area is tied to specific partner countries that have been approved on application.

The KA171 programme line is based on the same conditions, funding opportunities, values and objectives as its well-known sister programme Erasmus+.

The University of Freiburg has been successfully participating in the Erasmus+ Mobility programme with global partner universities since 2017.
