Erasmus+ for incoming students

Erasmus Exchange at HFBK Hamburg

Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. HFBK Hamburg currently enjoys many Erasmus partnerships with other European universities. Students of our partner institutions can study for one or two semesters at HFBK Hamburg – given that HFBK Hamburg accepts them for an Erasmus exchange.

Based on their portfolio, accepted Erasmus incoming students will be allocated for one or two semesters to a certain class at HFBK Hamburg. In addition, incoming students are welcome to take part in seminars, lectures and workshop courses.

Please find constantly updated information on HFBK’s measures in the context of the Corona pandemic in our FAQ section.

Studying art - and what comes next? The clichéd images stand their ground: Those who have studied art either become taxi drivers, work in a bar or marry rich. But only very few people could really live from art – especially in times of global crises. The HFBK Hamburg wanted to know more about this and commissioned the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Hamburg to conduct a broad-based survey of its graduates from the last 15 years.
