thank you for considering to come to Hamburg for an Erasmus placement. For general information, please have a look at the University pages for visiting ERASMUS students
. This page will also provide you with information on German classes
. All German language classes are free for students.
Regarding your study programme, there will be 2 options for you. Please be aware that all classes are delivered in German, therefore a minimum level of B1 is required. We would, however, recommend B2.
If you prefer to work on a research project in one of the labs, please note that we can take only a limited number of students due to constraints of both staff and place in the labs.
Your choice will have to be approved by both Erasmus coordinators in Hamburg and at home.
The University of Hamburg does not charge any tuition fees. You will, however, have to pay a semester contribution fee
which was € 263,00
in winter semester 2017/18. The semester contribution fee includes a seasonal ticket for illimited travel by public transport across the Hamburg Transport Network (HVV). Please do not pay before finding a request for payment in your STiNE account.
We will try to accomodate you in one of the halls of the Studierendenwerk
which are located all over Hamburg , but we cannot guarantee you a place
. The application form will be sent to your by Ms. Wagner. Please be aware that we do not accept requests for a particular hall. The minimum period of stay will be 5 months in the winter semester
and 4 months in the summer semester
. In case of a shorter stay, you may apply for a short-time contract at a slightly higher rate. If you prefer private accomodation, you will have to seek it by yourself.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
