Erasmus+ International Dimension - Student Mobility for Studies

Financial support for Erasmus stays was previously only available for European universities (scholarships are always awarded by the home university only). The new generation of the Erasmus+ program includes an “International Dimension” which allows TUM also to grant some incoming students from participating partner universites outside the EU.

Please note that it is not possible to apply for these grants. The International Offices of the participating partner universities organize the application and selection processes independently.

Within the scope of the International Dimension of ERASMUS+ grants are currently available for students of the following partner universities:

  • Egypt: Cairo University / American University of Cairo
  • Ghana: Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology
  • India: Indian Institute of Technology Bombay
  • Israel: Hebrew University of Jerusalem / Tel Aviv University / Technion
  • Japan: Kyoto University / University of Tokyo
  • Russia: Bauman Moscow State Technical University / Lomonosov Moscow State University / Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University / St. Petersburg State University /Skoltech
  • South Africa: Stellenbosch University
  • Vietnam: Vietnam National University - University of Science (VNU-HUS) / Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST)

The following types of funding are available for stays abroad:

  • Duration: 3-12 months
  • Individual support: €850/month
  • Travel cost support varies by country (Russia: 275,- €; Egypt, Israel: 360,- €; Ghana, India: 820,- €; Japan, South Africa, Vietnam: 1.500,-€).

Selected students on the TUMexchange program are nominated by the International Office of their individual partner universities. Direct applications are therefore not accepted.
