At first, you should consult your application with the Erasmus office at your home University. This way, you will ensure that there is an Agreement between your University and the CU. Please note that your nomination can be submitted only by your home university. Information about the nomination process is included in the CU Infosheet. The Erasmus+ coordinators of sending universities who do not have the CU Infosheet are warmly welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nomination deadline for winter semester/full academic year: 15th April
Nomination deadline for summer semester: 15th September
Application deadline for winter semester/full academic year: 15th May

Once your nomination is accepted by CU, we will send you a confirmation email with further administrative steps. If you were nominated and have not received any information about the application process, please contact us at email@example.com.
Follow the instructions in the confirmation email. After completing the online application form, please generate the Learning Agreement (LA) from the online application system. After that, please submit the document to your home university coordinator for approval and send the signed LA to CU.

Please see the table below and make sure that you fill out the correct dates into the online application since these are essential for your enrollment at the CU.
If you are applying for a traineeship/internship, the dates of your stay should be first discussed and confirmed individually with your host faculty coordinator.
If you wish to be accommodated at one of the CU's dormitories, please make your reservation in the online apllication section Information about Erasmus. This is the only correct way to book a place at the CU dormitories. The place in the dormitory will be assigned according to the capacities and your host faculty location. Please do not contact the dormitories directly regarding the reservation.

For more information, please contact the Erasmus+ coordinator at the relevant faculty.
Changes in your study plan can be done at the beginning of the semester. Please fill your changes into the relevant section of your LA and forward the document to your home university Erasmus+ coordinator and after that to the host faculty coordinator.
