If you would like to apply for an ERASMUS scholarship, two steps are necessary:

First, please fill out the online application on the pages of the International Office. Only applicants who have completed this step can be considered. Please use the option to name several possible target universities in the online application. This increases the chance that you will receive a scholarship place. 


Afterwards, please submit the pdf printout of the online application by email to   together with the following documents to the ERASMUS Officer in the Department of History:

  • Short curriculum vitae in table form with photo
  • Overview of your academic achievements to date (e.g. printout of the LSF performance overview)

In the weeks following the application deadline, the students who will receive an ERASMUS scholarship will be selected.  The selection is made on the basis of the submitted documents.
