Within the framework of the Erasmus program, we promote exchange in Europe. The International Office is the first point of contact for students: we provide advice on applying for funding, for example, or help with making contact with host universities. We are the contact for Kassel outgoers who would like to spend a semester abroad or do an internship in Europe and for all international incomers: Erasmus students who study at our department for one or two semesters as part of the Erasmus Plus program or international students who want to complete their Bachelor's and/or Master's degree.

For the summer semester 2023, the application deadline is 15.07.22. After that date, remaining places can still be allocated.

The Learning Agreement is a kind of contract that is concluded between the University of Kassel and the partner university. In it you write down which courses you will take abroad and how you want them to be credited in Kassel.

After the nomination, an information event will be organized for the students regarding the Learning Agreements in order to clarify general questions. The nominated students will receive the information by mail.
