Gain experience in Europe:
Erasmus+ programme

Would you like to enrich your study or practical experience with a stay abroad? Erasmus+ is the new programme of the European Union to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. With a €14.7 billion budget, the programme provides opportunities for over four million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. LUNEX International University was awarded the Erasmus-Charter for the 2014-2020 cycle of the Erasmus+ programme.

The award of the Erasmus-Charter is valid until 2020 and entitles LUNEX University to apply for and implement Erasmus+ measures. A new application will be required for the 2021-2027 Erasmus+ programme. Erasmus+ enables three to twelve-months students’ mobility and two to twelve-months internships within the European Union. The aim is to strengthen and expand existing partnerships between LUNEX International University and its partner universities.

All 27 EU member states together with Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey participate in the Erasmus+ programme.

Who is eligible for the programme?

Students, academics and support staff who are nationals of one of the Erasmus+ participating countries can apply for the Erasmus+ programme. Students coming from Non-EU-Countries are also entitled to apply under the condition that they are registered full-time with the University and are completing their degree at LUNEX University

Successful grant applications are awarded jointly by the International Office and an academic committee reviewing the applications.

A host partner university may not charge tuition fees and must be in possession of a valid Erasmus+ Charter. The Erasmus+ Charter for students can be found here.

Semester abroad with Erasmus+

A study abroad period provides you with the opportunity to gain further key skills and expand your CV with international and intercultural competencies. Study Abroad periods develop independence while supporting flexibility, both of which are highly desirable in a competitive job market. Interested in studying abroad with Erasmus+? Find out about the partners of LUNEX University.

Your next step is to discuss with the Erasmus+ coordinator in your department whether your study schedule matches with the study schedule at one of our partner universities.

Internship abroad with Erasmus+

The importance of international experience and intercultural skills is increasing significantly, because because today many personnel managers expect that job applicants have spent some time abroad, preferably in a professional context.

The Erasmus+ programme supports not only study visits, but also placements in public or private institutions in the 33 participating Erasmus+ programme countries. The internship must have a minimum duration of two months and a maximum of twelve months.

Current internships can be found here:
