Study at the FOM International University with Erasmus+

Become part of Europe's largest exchange programme

Are you studying at a foreign European university and would like to complete one or two semesters in Germany? If your university has a partnership agreement with FOM University, it will be possible to do this. As part of the “European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students”, you have the opportunity to study at one of 35 FOM university centres across Germany for up to one year. The benefit to you: you will be approved in a simplified process at the FOM and will not pay any student fees for your visit. There is also an option to receive a monthly bursary from the European Commission via the university in your home country.
