It gives students, members of the teaching staff as well as other University of Leipzig staff members the opportunity to extend their subject-specific, linguistic and cultural knowledge. Because of the Erasmus Agreements between the individual universities, there are no tuition fees and a monthly allowance is granted. The support period for an Erasmus Exchange or an Internship lasts no less than 3 month and no more than 12 month. At the moment, the Department of Art Education offers 10 places at 6 partner universities.
