Thank you for your interest in our university!

There are two different ERASMUS+ programmes. Please choose:

Erasmus+ in…1. Programme Countries> Which countries belong to this category?
2. Partner Countries> Which countries belong to this category?


1. ERASMUS+ in Programme Countries

Read on to learn more about Erasmus+ at TUBAF. Also, you may want to go through our Erasmus Guide (file type: pdf, file size: 1.24 MB) to acquire more in-depth information.

2. ERASMUS+ in Partner Countries

The Erasmus with Partner Countries  exchange programme offers the possibility of academic exchange and cooperation worldwide (except with the EU and third countries associated with the Erasmus programme). In our application portal Mobility Online (at “International Cooperations” select the option “Erasmus+ agreements” under “content of partnership) you can find all existing agreements of the TU Bergakademie in this programme.

Applicants under the Erasmus+ with Partner Countries programme may not apply using the application portal Mobility Online. Instead, please email the following documents to Ms. Anja Weigl (anja [dot] weigl [at] iuz [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de):

  • Fully completed application form for exchange students (the form includes a confirmation from the sending university proving that the applicant is officially sent by his/her home university).
  • Proof of language skills
  • Learning Agreement
  • Enrolment certificate from your home university
  • Proof of your actual university degrees
  • Photo in portrait format

Application formalities and deadlines for the Erasmus+ with Partner Countries programme are equal to the Erasmus+ Student Exchange Programme (see point 2.4 below).


2.1. Our degree programmes and their modules – Sources of information

The teaching units (e.g. lectures and seminars) are called modules. In the module handbook (“Modulhandbuch”) of a degree programme (usually available at the very bottom of the respective programme’s page) you will find detailed information to each module, such as:

  • content description
  • number of credit points
  • lecturer’s name(s)
  • semester in which the module takes place
  • components of the module (e.g. lecture, seminar, exercise, excursion …) and
  • its recommended accompanying literature.

As to setting up your Learning agreement, we recommend the following steps:

  1. Select your desired Bachelor’s/Master’s degree programme
  2. Find the module handbook on the programme’s web page (“Medien und Downloadbereich” or “Media and Downloads” resp.) and open it up. Please be sure to choose the latest version of the module handbook.
  3. Please note that a module must be available in the specific semester of your stay abroad (summer or winter semester). Whether a module is available or not can be checked in the row “Frequency”.
  4. If your selected degree programme only provides few suitable modules, you may also use the following PDF files containing further English-language modules: 

Important notes

  1. Above you find the list of modules of each study programme taught in English.
  2. Available in which semester? – Each module description contains the information whether a module is available in winter semester or in summer semester – see the line “Frequency: yearly in the winter semester/summer semester”.
  3. Duration of a module – The duration of each module can be one or more semesters. It is indicated in the module description (e. g. Duration: 1 semester). Usually it is not possible to split a module and earn for example 3 ECTS in one semester instead of 6 ECTS in two.
  4. Bachelor or Master module? – Each module description displays a module code in the first line (e. g. MetMat. MA. Nr. 3213). The module code contains the letters “BA.” or “MA.” which indicates whether it is a Bachelor or a Master module.
    Since only Master’s programmes and no Bachelor’s programmes taught in English are offered at the TUBAF, English-language bachelor’s modules are an exception.

The following deadlines apply to all Erasmus applications:

Summer semester**November 30th of the previous year

3. Dormitory

A place in a dormitory is probably the best type of accommodation for exchange students. Located on campus you can reach the faculty buildings with it’s lecture halls, the library and the canteen as well as the city centre on foot.

Types of rooms

There are nine housing complexes run by the Studentenwerk Freiberg.


The price range extends from 195 to 380 euros/month including additional costs, depending on the apartment’s equipment and size.

Questions regarding the dormitory will be answered in the FAQ section.


Please use the online application of the Studentenwerk Freiberg to apply. Please apply at least two month prior to your arrival in Freiberg.


4. Buddy programme

The International Office runs a Buddy programme. It provides help for new international students in Freiberg. Experienced German or international students engage themselves on a voluntary basis. A student buddy will, for example, get your dormitory key in advance, pick you up at the train station in Freiberg, accompany you to the Residents’ Registration Office, the bank or health insurance company as well as to the Foreigners’ Registration Office – wherever you have to take care of formalities.

This service is free of charge.

Please register for the Buddy programme on our website, if you are interested.


5. German courses

If you are enrolled at TU Bergakademie Freiberg, you may attend free German courses offered by the International Centre during the respective semester. We offer different language proficiency levels. Please make sure that the language course (A1.1, A1.2, A2.1, A2.2, B1.1 or B1.2) is available during your stay with us.

A/B.1 stands for the winter semester and A/B.2 for the summer semester.
