The ERASMUS+ program is an European mobility/exchange program for students (detailed information at the International Center of CAU).
ERASMUS+ outgoing students:
ERASMUS+ program offers possibilities for CAU students to study some months in one of CAU partner universities within Europe. These periods are designed in a way that a minimum of 15 ECTS awarded at the partner university will be accredited and added to the students ECTS account at CAU.
The M. Sc. Biological Oceanography curriculum offers within third semester (WS) a mobility window to study abroad.
Please contact the International Center of CAU as early as possible - latest two semesters ahead of your planned ERASMUS+ exchange phase (Information events for the academic year 2022-2023, ERASMUS+ "Fact Sheet" of Kiel University and ERASMUS+ Online Registration for CAU Outgoings (also SEA EU) 2023/24 - the portal will be opened on January 15th, 2023).
This structure (attending 3. semester M. Sc. BiOc equivalent modules (for details contact M.Sc. BiOc study advice - general application deadline: December 15, 2022 - application (CV, letter of motivation) ERASMUS+ partner universities of M. Sc. Biological Oceanography are Tromsö, Aberdeen, Wageningen, Barcelona, Faro, Azores, Crete, Napoli, Zürich)) ensures that students using the mobility window, can complete their curriculum without delay.
ERASMUS+ incoming students:
GEOMAR and the Christian-Albrechts-University, Kiel (CAU) offer within the framework of ERASMUS+ for a limited number of students possibilities to participate in modules of M.Sc. Biological Oceanography.
All interested future ERASMUS+ students, together with their ERASMUS+ supervisor at the sending (home) university, first have to contact the International Center of the Christian-Albrechts-University (CAU), Kiel then GEOMAR at least six months in advance of the planned ERASMUS+ placement semester(s).
This is indispensable finding the best courses, to make sure that chosen courses will be given in the semester planned, that there are free capacities and to prevent "sudden" cancellations of courses due to e.g. possible change of staff, research sabbatical, parental leave etc. resulting in missing credits during your placement.
To participate in M.Sc. Biological Oceanography courses within the ERASMUS+ framework follow the steps below:
Welcome to Kiel
Only performing this procedure will give you the opportunity to take part in our courses.
ERASMUS internships/traineeships (SMT) follow a different schedule. As GEOMAR does not have a centralized organization regarding ERASMUS internships/traineeships (SMT), students have to identify a working group of their interest (matching their skills and interests) and contact the head of this group. If there is the possibility for an internship/traineeship there, documents have to be set up and signed by the constituents – and the internship/traineeship will start accordingly.
Please consult GEOMARs website (Research), identify the group/research unit of your interest and contact the person in charge indicated there.
