A European Union Success Story

Erasmus+

The EU education program Erasmus has been promoting cross-border mobility of students, university teaching and administrative staff since 1987. In addition, diverse cooperation and partnership programs offer far-reaching opportunities for institutional exchange between universities in Europe and worldwide.

The Erasmus+ program generation (2014-2020) was replaced by Erasmus+ (2021-2027) in 2021. For each program generation, the universities have to submit an application to the Executive Agency in Brussels (EACEA), which TU Dortmund University successfully did also in 2020. Based on this higher education policy statement (European Policy Statement ), TU Dortmund University received an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (2020) from the EU Commission. It proves that TU Dortmund University fulfills all requirements for a successful participation in the Erasmus program.

For more information on Erasmus+, please visit the website of the European Commission and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The DAAD provides information on current developments in the new Erasmus program generation (2021-2027) on its website.

The focus areas in the new Erasmus program are:

  •     Digitalizationn (Erasmus Without Paper (EWP))
  •     Inclusion
  •     Green Erasmus
  •     Civic Engagement

The following information contains only the information for students and employees of TU Dortmund University from the Erasmus+ program generation.

Application | Coordination

The International Office applies centrally to the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) for funding for faculty cooperations that have been successfully implemented by faculties over many years. A faculty cooperation agreement must already exist and proof must be provided that exchange activities are active. For the new program generation (2021-2027), it is not yet clear how the program will continue.

The program is implemented in cooperation between those responsible for the faculty cooperation agreement and the International Office.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

 

TU Dort­mund University has its own train station ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät"). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station ("Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof") and Düsseldorf main station via the "Düsseldorf Airport Train Station" (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station "Stadtgarten", usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At "Stadtgarten" you switch trains and get on line U42 towards "Hombruch". Look out for the Station "An der Palmweide". From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop "Dort­mund Kampstraße". From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop "Dort­mund Wittener Straße". Switch to bus line 447 and get off at "Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S".

 

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.

 

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.

 

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".
