ERASMUS exchange programme
Do you want to spend some time abroad?
Are you interested in learning other approaches to or themes in anthropology?
Maybe the ERASMUS mobility programme is something for you.
With ERASMUS anthropology students have the opportunity to study between 3 and 12 months at a European partner university. No tuition fees are charged and students receive a small monthly mobility allowance of around 150€. What makes the program particularly attractive is the supporting infrastructure: a simplified registration process at the partner universities, academic contacts, housing assistance and often language courses at little or no cost.
