The Institute of Ethnology offers its students the possibility to pursue a study term abroad in Europe under the ERASMUS program. Depending on their course of study, students can apply for an ERASMUS scholarship to study at one of our nine European partner institutes.
The administrative process of ERASMUS starts several months prior to the start of the exchange semester. Accordingly students should start planning for an exchange term ahead of time. Applications for ERASMUS are accepted once a year.
The deadline for applications for the academic year 2019-2020 will be announced. For detailed information please see Dr. Souleymane Diallo during his consultation (office) hours. Applications should include a letter of motivation, transcript of records, cv, and a language certificate for the medium of instructions and be submitted to the Institute of Ethnology in print.
For further information on ERASMUS and application requirements see the International Office’s homepage.
