Yes, international students can also take part in the Erasmus program provided they are not exchange students at Bielefeld University themselves.

Foreign students with a residence permit for their studies in Germany may only stay in another country of the Schengen area for up to 90 days.

Foreign students must therefore apply for a visa for the respective country of destination after their nomination for the Erasmus program. This can mean that the German residence permit is temporarily retained during the stay abroad.

You can find a list of our cooperations under the heading Information for Outgoing Students.

Current information on scholarships and applications is regularly posted on the website of the International Office.
