The ERASMUS+ program supports the cross-border mobility of students, lecturers and other university staff all over Europe
ERASMUS programmes in participating countries are open not only to Germans and German nationals, but also to citizens of other countries who are undertaking (full-time) studies at the Saar University of Music leading to a recognised qualification. Exchange and visiting students are not entitled to ERASMUS grants.
Students in the first year of their university studies are not eligible for funding (this does not apply to master’s students). Repeated funding is permitted in principle, but priority will be given to those who have not yet completed an ERASMUS exchange.
Student mobility grants can be awarded for a minimum period of three months and a maximum of twelve months. A few exceptions to this are the trimesters or terms offered by some participating countries, which are often shorter than the minimum three-month period.
What are the benefits of ERASMUS+ for students?
A simplified procedure for applying to the host university (you will not generally have to take an aptitude test at the partner university, with the only requirement being a demo recording with around 15-20 minutes of music. In some cases there will be the possibility of an audition in person with the chosen professor, which can significantly increase the chances of the application being successful. The decision regarding whether to accept a candidate ultimately lies with the host university).
Mobility applications must be submitted to the Erasmus+ coordinator by 31 January before the beginning of the academic year in which the desired exchange period is to be undertaken.
