Erasmus+ Program at the Europa-Institut


The European Union has been funding the Erasmus program for nearly 30 years. It has so far enabled over three million European students to spend part of their studies in a higher education institution or organization in Europe. Erasmus+ helps to organize and fund exchanges of undergraduate and graduate students within  Erasmus+ program countries as well as to and from partner countries. There are no tuition fees for an Erasmus study at the host university and funding is available, which varies in amount depending on the destination country.

Studying abroad offers the opportunity to improve language skills, gain confidence and independence, and access a new culture. It also makes you richer: in experiences, in friends, in love of life. And it pays off when it comes to finding a job.

With more than 550 partner universities worldwide, the paths are open to students of Saar University. The Faculty of Law alone maintains 80 partnerships with European universities from 30 countries, in addition to further Eastern European sponsorships and exchange programs overseas. Best conditions to study abroad for one or two semesters.
