Partner universities of the Department of Geography

(information on partner universities only available in German)

  • Institut Francais Bonn

    The Institut Français in Bonn offers preparatory Erasmus courses and language courses at all levels in cooperation with the University of Bonn (www.fif.uni-bonn.de). Additional one-to-one courses can also be arranged on request. Please contact Ms. Ketterer (kurse.institutfrancais@uni-bonn.de) if you have any questions.

    Any students who are interested can also make use of the French media library (recent novels, DVDs, magazines, specialist literature) and the extensive program of cultural events (concerts, film evenings, public readings by authors, talks and debates in German and/or French).

Despite Brexit, Erasmus stays at our British partner universities can continue under the usual Erasmus conditions until the 2022/23 academic year. In other words, tuition fees are still waived and Erasmus funding is still available.
