Information for Outgoing Students

Welcome

You are studying on the Bachelor or Master level in

  • Computer Science
  • Embedded Systems Engineering
  • Microsystems Engineering
  • Sustainable Systems Engineering
  • Polyvalent study program

You want to go one or two semester abroad in the EU (or Switzerland, Turkey, Norway, or Iceland)? Then apply for an Erasmus semester! We have enough places to serve all applicants (so far). We have over twenty partners.

The European Union supports students who are enrolled at a European university and who want to study for 3 - 12 months at another European university through the Erasmus program. The students are selected by their home university. They do not have to pay any tuition fees at the host university. Credits earned abroad will in principle be accepted and transferred. In order to cover for the additional cost of studying abroad the participants of the Erasmus program receive a scholarship and additional, but limited, financial aid towards the cost of a language course in the host county. The host university helps the students find accommodation and offers social and study-related support.

Other Countries (Students and Staff)

For other countries other programs please contact the International Office. There, you can also get information about Baden-Württemberg-Stipendium, the DAAD-Promos-Stipendium  for funding of your stay abroad. 

  1. Opportunities for Research Stays of Post-docs, Ph.D. students and master students at the National Institute of Informatics Tokyo 

    The National Institute of Informatics (NII) (https://www.nii.ac.jp/en/) is the Inter-University Research Institute for advanced Computer Science research and global science data infrastructure support situated in the heart of Tokyo, Japan.
    Research topics (https://www.nii.ac.jp/en/faculty/) range from Principles of Informatics like graph theory to Information and Society research like infrastructures for Open Science, through nowadays topics like Machine Learning. Additionally, NII plays a key role in Japan and overseas in providing operating infrastructures for global data management like SINET5 (https://www.sinet.ad.jp/en/top-en) scientific data exchange.
    The Global Liaison Office (GLO) (https://www.nii.ac.jp/en/about/international/) mission is to foster NII international research exchanges. The GLO offers exchange opportunities for welcoming at NII outstanding masters, Ph.D students, Post-Docs, junior and senior researchers in many fields of Computer Sciences (https://www.nii.ac.jp/en/faculty/). For more information, see https://www.nii.ac.jp/en/about/international/mouresearch/ and  https://www.nii.ac.jp/en/about/international/mouresearch/internship2019-2/.

  2. In addition to stays abroad through the ERASMUS + program, there are other opportunities to go abroad while studying. With the program  Freiburg Global Exchange, the International Office provides study abroad in non-European countries as well as financial support for planned stays abroad with the Baden-Württemberg-Stipendium and the DAAD-Promos-Stipendium.

    Furthermore, the International Office advises on further study-related stays such as "free movers", teaching activities, internships, Nucor, etc., as well as on further scholarships abroad.

    Up-to-date information can be found on the homepage of the International Office or in the regular information event „Wege ins Ausland“.

  1. A letter of motivation for a specific partner university outlining the reasons for your desire to study abroad with Erasmus and for choosing that specific partner university (2 pages max.).
  2. A curriculum vitae in tabular form that also includes a photo of you.
  3. A description of your extracurricular activities and proof of language proficiency (e.g. secondary school marks or test certificates such as Cambridge or TOEFL, 
  4. A copy of your secondary school certificate.
  5. A transcript of records showing the completed courses and obtained grades and a list of courses you are planning to take in the future (abroad as well as in Freiburg).
  6. An informal list of courses that you would like to attend at the partner university
     

If you want to apply for a spot that is not in line with your current study field, you should also submit a letter of recommendation from a professor in your study field.

Please submit your application to Ms. Kerstin Pfeiffer.

The Learning Agreement (LA)

As soon as we have accepted you as an outgoing Erasmus student we'll nominate you at the EU-office in Freiburg. From there you'll receive the link to register at the Mobility-On-line System. Once you are registered you'll be lead step by step through the pipeline. Soon you'll get access to the form of the LA before the mobility and be asked to fill in the courses you'd like to attend. To be sure that your chosen courses will be recognised in Freiburg after your stay at the partner university, you have to let the appointed commissioner for Erasmus LA from the examination committee in Freiburg (Faculty of Engineering) crosscheck the LA before the mobility. The current list of appointed commissioner for Erasmus LA (Anerkennungsbeauftragter) is

  • Prof. Peter Thiemann (Computer Science/ESE)
  • Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka (Micro Systems Engineering/ESE)
  • Prof. Dr. Frank Balle (SSE)


The LA before the mobility may be changed during the stay abroad. This is then called the LA during the mobility. This also must be crosschecked by the chair of the examination committee in Freiburg.

For the application in Freiburg, it is sufficient to submit an informal list of the courses you'd like to attend  based on the courses offered by the host university in the past.
