Welcome to TU Ilmenau! We are looking forward to meeting you!

The basis for funding in the Erasmus+ worldwide programme is a valid Inter-Institutional Agreement (IIA) between our universities. The most important requirement for your participation in the programme is the nomination by your home institution and the responsible cooperation partner at TU Ilmenau.

For more information, please contact the International Office of your home university. After your selection, you will receive an email from TU Ilmenau with further information about your studies and application.

And what about the costs?

TU Ilmenau does not charge additional tuition fees for exchange students!

You only have to pay a so-called semester contribution ("Semesterbeitrag"). This is an obligatory social contribution to the constituted student body and the Studierendenwerk Thüringen. All students of TU Ilmenau have to pay this contribution. Also included: A semester ticket for free use of all local trains in the Free State of Thuringia.

You can find the current semester fee here. In addition, there is an extra €20 for the student ID card (Thoska) in the first semester.

Further information can be found at the Studierendenwerk Thüringen. Please note that the total amount listed there does not include the contribution to the constituted student body in Ilmenau (€ 10.00).
