Financial assistance for costs resulting from transportation and accommodations is offered at RWTH Aachen according to the State Travel Costs Act and Cost Reimbursement Ordinance for Abroad.


Participation in conferences cannot be funded. Visits that aim to establish university partnerships exclusively – so called Preparatory Visits – will also not be funded.

No participation fees of any kind are covered by the funding.

Erasmus+ saims to promote equal opportunities and inclusion. For this reason, participants with a disability are granted easier access to the program and offered special funding. Please contact Adriane Sehlinger for information about the special funding.


Staff Training Week offers organized by foreign universities will be regularly published on this platform. If interested, please contact the respective university and inform them.

Erasmus+ Mobility for further and continuing education purposes can also be self-organized. You must contact your target institution and inquire whether a working visit is possible.

Participants must ensure they have sufficient insurance during the stay abroad as the grant and mobility stipend do not include any insurance.

Application and Documents

The Mobility Agreement must be completely filled out and signed and submitted to Claudia Hanke at least six weeks before the stay begins. This Mobility Agreement is considered the application for ERASMUS Staff Mobility. You can submit the Mobility Agreement as a scanned copy.

Additional forms and information needed for financial assistance will be sent once the application has been approved.

A Note on Safety

In view of political tensions in some of the Erasmus countries we advise those who are planning a stay abroad to check the website of the Federal Foreign Office, in particular its travel warnings (de), on a regular basis.
