Student Mobility & Internationalization


For students of the marine and natural sciences there is a large number of partnerships with foreign Universties available as part of the ERASMUS+ program. This EU program promotes student mobility within the European Union. It provides financial grants and offers the opportunity to study at a partner University for one or two semesters without tuition fees. Partner Universities offering marine programs and single courses are located in, for instance, Gothenburg, Tromso, Wageningen, Brest, Lisbon. The complete list of CAU ERASMUS partners can be found under the following link. You can use the filter function to search for partnerships in your institute and related departments (e.g., biology, environmental sciences). If you have any questions, please contact the program officers listed or the contact persons at the CAU International Center.



SEA-EU: Europäische Universität der Meere 



In the framework of the ERASMUS+ project "SEA-EU - The European University of the Seas" the six partner Universities of Cadiz (Spain), West Brittany (Brest, France), Gdansk (Poland), Split (Croatia), Malta, and Kiel develop a European Campus to foster academic mobility and collaboration in the upcoming years. Initially, the project focuses on marine science study programs and courses on marine topics of all faculties. Important updates and information on first offers during the current pilot phase can be found under this link.

Internationalization at home? Virtual teaching modules on the topic Sustainability are offered by the six SEA-EU partner universities during the academic year 2021/22. Find more information here.



GAME - Globaler Ansatz durch Modulare Experimente


GAME is an international research and training program for Master students of the marine sciences, biology, ecology, and environmental science. Participants are part of a global research project and together with fellow students carry out experiments abroad. All teams meet for experimental preparation and data analysis at Geomar Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research in Kiel, Germany. The data collected and analyzed forms the basis of the participants' individual Master Theses.
