Erasmus+ Application

In principle, all students fully enrolled at TU Dortmund University can participate in the Erasmus program and study for one or two semesters at our partner universities. The International Office also maintains a list of our partner universities.

The application deadline for the winter and summer semester of the next academic year is January 15. The application must be submitted digitally to the Erasmus Faculty Coordinator and should include the following documents:

  • Letter of motivation indicating
    • the university of choice,
    • the planned period of stay and
    • the planned courses
  • Curriculum vitae in tabular form
  • Proof of the required language skills
  • Current transcript of records
  • Photograph

The chances of getting an Erasmus place in the Department of Physics are usually very high. If there are more applicants for a place, the decision is made on the basis of the available documents. The letter of motivation is of particular importance. If you have received a confirmation from the Erasmus coordinator of the Department for an Erasmus place, you will be nominated by him/her at the host university. If you do not receive a confirmation of the nomination, please contact the coordination as soon as possible.

Once you have been accepted, you must then register with the host university (for more information, please visit the website of the International Office of the host university) and fill out an online declaration of acceptance on the website of the International Office of the TU Dortmund University. You must have the printout signed by the Erasmus Coordinator by March 1 and submit it to the International Office. Please also send a scan of the signed document to our coordination for archiving the data. Please also take care of a first version of your Learning Agreement and please make an advising appointment with the faculty coordinator for completion by April 1.

After your stay, you must prepare an experience report and send it, along with a copy of your Recognition of Records, to the Departmentäs representative, otherwise recognition of the ECTS credits earned will not be possible.

For further questions and help, please do not hesitate to contact our Departmental Erasmus Coordinator.

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.



One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.



From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
