English Literature and Culture (ELC)/English

ERASMUS exchange programmes

The Department of English Literature and Culture maintains ERASMUS exchange agreements with a number of European partner universities. Students who successfully apply for a place on the ERASMUS programme will have their tuition fees at their respective host university waived. In addition, they receive a partial scholarship and organisational assistance in finding accommodation and putting together their course programme in ELC/English.

The application requirement is one completed university semester (i.e. at least two completed semesters at the start of the stay abroad). The application for the stays, which generally begin in the winter semester, takes place annually in December of the previous year. You must submit the completed application form (available during office hours and at the information event); a list of academic achievements; a tabular study plan; a curriculum vitae; as well as a written statement in English explaining your preferred choice of study location. The following criteria are decisive for your application:

- Qualitative as well as quantitative achievements in your previous studies in Mainz

- Quality and feasibility of the study project at the partner university

- Punctuality, completeness and significance of your application

We will inform the successful applicants by mid-January at the latest.
Application forms, application deadlines and further information on the ERASMUS programme

Compulsory stays in the B.Ed./M.Ed. MUST be completed in an English-speaking country.
