We are glad about your interest in spending a period of study at Justus Liebig University!

As an Erasmus+ student at Justus Liebig University, not only will you be able to profit from our free language courses for Erasmus+ students but you can also take advantage of further aspects of the Erasmus+ program, such as access to inexpensive accommodation in one of the University's student halls of residence.

There is also the opportunity given you individually to explore Giessen and large parts of the State of Hesse by using our 'semester ticket', which gives you free use of public transport between and within the regional cities of Giessen, Frankfurt am Main, Kassel, Darmstadt, Wiesbaden, and Fulda.
