Erasmus+ students (non-degree)

Our Erasmus+ exchange program is an opportunity for students from the European Union and Turkey to spend up to two semesters in Germany. Find out whether this may be an option for you.

Would you like to spend up to one year in the heart of Europe and in one of the most cutting-edge regions of Germany?
The University of Stuttgart welcomes exchange students from our partner universities in Europe and Turkey! Please consider that the Erasmus+ program requires a minimum level of German proficiency (B1).

Are you an Erasmus+ student?

If the following criteria apply to you, then you are:

  • You are enrolled at a partner university of the University of Stuttgart in the European Union, in Norway, Switzerland (Swiss Mobility) or in Turkey.
  • You want to study for one or two semesters at the University of Stuttgart.
  • You can prove a German proficiency of B1 or above.

You also need to be officially nominated by your home university. We are looking forward to your application!

Application process

The application procedure for Erasmus+ students consists of five steps:


Deadlines: April 1 (for the following winter semester), October 1 (for the following summer semester)

Please contact the International Office of your home university to complete this step before proceeding to Step 2.

Deadlines: May 1 (for the following winter semester), November 1 (for the following summer semester)

As soon as you have been nominated under Step 1, you will be provided with the link to the Mobility-Online portal. Please upload the following documents to the registration platform:

  • A passport sized photo
  • Transcript of records from your home university (either in English or in German)
  • Your learning agreement (signed by you and your home university)
  • Proof of German language skills (minimum B1) OR
  • In case of lower German skills (A1 or A2) you can only attend English taught courses; in this case we additionally need a proof of your English language skills (minimum B2)
  • You can register for the intensive German course (IGC) via Mobility-Online as well
    In case your German skills are lower than B1, participation in the intensive German course is mandatory

After you have uploaded your complete documents, they will be sent automatically to your academic Erasmus advisor who will sign the learning agreement. Please upload the final learning agreement (signed by you, your home university and the academic Erasmus advisor at the University of Stuttgart) to your Mobility-Online account and send it to the International Office.

Incoming students, who would like to write a Bachelor or Master thesis in the field of Engineering at our university, will have to apply for a 1-year exchange (2 semesters):

  • 1st semester: You will take courses and look independently for a thesis topic and a supervisor during the exchange semester.
  • 2nd semester: You may write the thesis, if you have found a thesis topic and a supervisor. If not you will be able to take courses at our university instead or write the thesis at e.g. your home institution.

You will have to find a supervisor for your thesis yourself. The International Office and the academic Erasmus+ advisor are not able to assist in finding a suitable thesis topic and supervisor. You can only be enrolled as a student at the University of Stuttgart after we have received a confirmation from your thesis supervisor in Stuttgart.

Deadlines: June 1 (for the following winter semester), December 1 (for the following summer semester)

After completing your registration on the Mobility-Online platform, you can apply for admission as a non-degree program student via our web-based application system C@MPUS.

The C@MPUS portal will be open as of mid-May/mid-November.

To ensure a successful application process, we strongly recommend that you follow our C@MPUS guideline.
