The ERASMUS higher education program (European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) was launched by the EU in 1987 to encourage the mobility of students and teachers within Europe.
The ERASMUS programme promotes international university study as well as guest lecturers; it also supports foreign internships and the mobility of academic staff.
At the Academy of Fine Arts Munich (AdBK), ERASMUS study programs and internships are managed by the International Office. The financial management of the grants is coordinated by KOOR Best in Karlsruhe.
The European Commission provides billions of euros for the implementation of this pan-European program. This means that program participants can receive a scholarship for the duration of their stay at a European partner university.
The European Commission has awarded the AdBK the European Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).
AdBK Munich has around 40 cooperation agreements with other European universities under the Erasmus scheme.

In Germany, financial resources are distributed to the universities by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in Bonn.
