Application (Erasmus & Economics Partners Worldwide)

Application Period

Every year there is only one application period. Applications for programs both in the summer and winter semester must be turned in at this time.

For a study abroad during the 2019-2020 academic year the application period starts on November 15, 2018 and ends on January 15, 2019 at 3 pm.

Application Process

Please carefully read the instructions below.

It is your job to ensure your application is complete and received by us on time. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered for a spot in our programs!

Step 1 – Taking the Decision of Your Priorities (All Applicants!)

Information

Before applying please inform yourself about the Exchange Programs of the Department of Economics and how you should be Planning Your Study Abroad.

Then, you should visit the website of the respective partner universities, for example please have a look at the offered courses and the lecture periods of the semesters.

In addition, it may be helpful for your decision to read some student comments/reviews about the partner universities on the LMU online platform MoveOn.

Priorities

You are able to name up to 6 preferred host universities (Erasmus & Economics Partners worldwide) in the Online Tool of the Economics Exchange Office (Step 2). 

The chances of getting your top selection cannot be elevated by choosing only one or two priorities neither by choosing strategically. Choosing based on your real preferences will always guarantee you the best result. Only applications with fully 6 named priorities are considered for the LMU-wide succession procedure ("Erasmus-Nachrückverfahren").

Please note that the selection of the preferences is binding and changes are not possible afterwards.
