ERASMUS+ for students - Incoming

We are looking forward to receiving ERASMUS+ applications from students, who would like to study at the University of Music Wuerzburg for one semester or a whole academic year!

The University of Music Würzburg (HfM) offers education and training on a high artistic, artistic-pedagogical and academic level, with the goal of providing students successful entry into a career field and to enable an active and responsible organization of music-cultural life. With this objective, the University of Music finds itself at the crossroads of tradition and innovation in coming to terms with the dynamic career possibilities associated with current societal and cultural changes and in developing corresponding teaching and learning opportunities. This includes the development of individual artistic-musical excellence with intensive personal development through engaged instructors, as well as the creation of extensive artistic-pedagogical qualifications and academic competence through teaching and learning opportunities. (cf. ERASMUS+ Policy Statement). ERASMUS+ incoming students will be supported in the best possible way and  taught in their main instrument by the full-time professors of our institution. By playing in various ensembles at our institution, as well as by participating in offered courses, ERASMUS+ students enrich our academics and gain valuable experience themselves. Moreover, our goal is to integrate ERASMUS+ students not only into university life, but also into student life in tne city of Würzburg.


Students at our ERASMUS+ partner universities prepare  their application to study in Wuerzburg together with  International Office of their home university. After that, the International Office nominates the applicant by sending us a notification via e-mail.

Important:   Only applications that are proceeded on time via Mobility Online  will be accepted. The application link will be activated on 15th of February. If you do not have access to Mobility Online, please contact us by e-mail:

Students who are not studying at one of our ERASMUS+ partner universities, but are enrolled at a university in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Norway, Switzerland or Turkey, please contact the International Office of your university. If possible, we then initiate an ERASMUS+ partnership together with our colleagues. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee every student a cooperation agreement for studies at our university, as we receive many more ERASMUS+ applications every year than we can accept.

The following application documents must be uploaded:

  • Link to a video recording with approx. 15 minutes of music (3 different styles)
  • Curriculum vitae (in German or English)
  • Transcript of Records (in German or English)
  • Proof of language skills in German (at least B2 CEFR) or in English (at least B2 CEFR) or confirmation from the ERASMUS+-Coordinator at your home institutuion about your sufficient language skills (B2).

The application deadline is 15 March of each year for both semesters of the coming academic year!

 The learning agreement will be prepared once accepted at our university. 

Würzburg is the cosmopolitan city and with its three large higher education institutions (Julius-Maximilian University of Würzburg, University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt and University of Music Würzburg) and has a strong ERASMUS+ community. Exchange students from all over the world meet in Würzburg where they study together and make lifelong friendships. Furthermore, Würzburg is a vivid city located in the heart of Europe with splendid pieces of architecture and a great variety of cultural events. The city on the river Main with a high quality of life and picturesque vineyards is a perfect place to study. ERASMUS+ students will be inspired by the art-historical backdrop of the city and have a great experience during their ERASMUS+ Exchange here.
