Erasmus is a success story. LMU has recorded exchanges with 380 European partner universities since 1989. The Erasmus Programme supports measures to promote mobility of students, teachers and other categories of university staff for training purposes, with a view to promoting cooperation between universities in and beyond Europe.

Contractual basis

To ensure LMU's participation in the Erasmus+ Programme (for the period 2014–2020), the International Office successfully applied, in the name of LMU's Executive Board, for the Erasmus Charta for Higher Education (ECHE). The application included the required statement of the University's European policy, which set out, in the prescribed form, LMU's goals with respect to its future international orientation.

Mobility within Europe: Erasmus+ partnering countries (KA 103)

In accordance with the Erasmus+ Programme KA 103, LMU students may study for a time at any of our 380 Erasmus partner universities or choose an internship elsewhere in Europe. LMU's teaching and administrative staffs may work at partner institutions, and participate in other measures designed to enhance their qualifications.

Mobility beyond Europe: Erasmus+ partner institutions (KA 107)

Together with a selected set of partner universities around the world, LMU is also a party to the Erasmus+ scheme of cooperation with partner institutions (KA107). This program facilitates exchanges of university teachers and administrative staff who wish to work for a time at any of the partner institutions. The program also supports students from partner institutions who wish to study at LMU.

Erasmus Mundus

The European Commission's Erasmus Mundus scheme is intended to promote the development of integrated study programs by consortia of European universities. Students who graduate from these programs receive a double degree. LMU is involved in the following collaborative study programs:

European University

The Erasmus initiative "European Universities" is designed to stimulate the formation of alliances between universities. Its primary aim is to more effectively exploit the diverse strengths of Europe's research universities by enabling them to form novel networks in appropriate fields. Together with universities in Paris, Lund, Porto and Szeged, LMU is a partner in the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH).

Further information on the programs is available on the websites of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German National Agency, and the European Commission.
