Universität Augsburg Overview

The University of Augsburg campus is one of the most congenial places to study in Germany. Situated near the city centre of Augsburg, the campus is spacious without being overwhelming. The modern buildings, functional and yet architecturally appealing, blend into a landscaped park with grassy areas, a lake, fountains and several sculptures by contemporary artists.

The concentration of the academic buildings on one site simplifies the day-to-day working of the university while encouraging communication. The individual faculties, the administration offices (including the Student Service Centre), the refectory, cafeterias, bars, and the libraries are all conveniently close together.

Swansea University currently has agreements in place with the University of Augsburg for the College of Arts and Humanities and the department of German.

Erasmus+ Grant - Approx €300 per month

This bursary amount is dependent on location, and can vary. It is available for UK students who decide to spend up to a year of their course in Europe in 2015-16 through the Erasmus+ programme. Students can receive grants of up to 300 euro per month for study, or up to 400 euro per month for student traineeships, depending on the country they go to. This grant is a contribution to the extra costs of studying abroad, which is why it varies by country.
