HU recognised for excellent Erasmus+ record

Annual report by the EU Commission confirms: Humboldt-Universität among the best three universities in Germany

The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU) is among the three German universities that sends the most students to other EU countries as part of Erasmus+, the European exchange programme. This was confirmed in the 2017 Erasmus+ annual report presented by EU Education Commissioner Tibor Navracsics in Brussels on 24 January 2019 .

Accordingly, France, Germany and Spain were the three most important countries for sending students, while Spain, Germany and the United Kingdom counted as the three most popular study destinations. The report also shows that more people than ever before are participating in the programme and the number of projects has risen further.

Altogether, in 2017 Erasmus+ supported around 104,000 participants from Germany, and around 800,000 for Europe as a whole – representing a year-on-year increase of almost ten percent.

Humboldt University programmes

The range of programmes available at HU is excellent, offering not only placements abroad for students but also teaching placements and further training for employees in research and administration.
