A stay abroad with ERASMUS+ is a very simple and straightforward way to gain new experiences. It will never be this simple again to go abroad; and you should not let this opportunity slip during your time at university.

Funding Amount

The financial support for Erasmus+ study visits is based on the different costs of living in the target or program countries. The countries are divided into three groups:

  • In the academic year 2021/22, the funding amount set by the DAAD for country group 1is 450 euros per month, for country group 2 it is 390 euros per month and for country group 3the amount is 330 euros per month.
  • In the academic year 2022/23, the funding amount set by the DAAD for country group 1 is 600 euros per month, for country group 2 it is 540 euros per month and for country group 3 the amount is 490 euros per month.

You can find out which group your target country belongs to in this country group overview.

In the 2022/23 Academic Year, a maximum of four months will be funded for a one-semester Erasmus+ stay and a maximum of eight months for a two-semester Erasmus+ stay. Please note: The funding amounts and the funding terms and conditions vary from one academic year to the next. Therefore, the funding levels mentioned are only indicative for future academic years.


Special Funding

Erasmus+ promotes equal opportunities and inclusion. For this reason, in addition to students with a disability or chronic illness or students who are spending their time abroad with a child or children, students with non-academic parents and working students are now also eligible to receive an additional grant of 250 euros per month for a period of study abroad, starting in the 2022/23 winter semester. Those receiving Ersamus+ funding can apply only once to recieve this stipend, even if they meet several of the criteria for continued funding. Please refer to our website Equal Opportunities: Everyone Can Study Abroad for more information. We would also be happy to tell you more about extra funding opportunities through Erasmus. For more information, please contact Amelie Meiners.

Erasmus Obligations

Receiving the Erasmus+ scholarship also binds you to certain obligations. We will inform you about these obligations after being selected by the faculties or departments for an Erasmus+ study place.

The obligations include submitting/completing:

  • The Grant Agreement
  • The Online Learning Agreement
    Alternatively, in exceptional cases, the PDF version of the Learning Agreement may be used, which you can find together with the step-by-step guide (FAQ) in the downloads below. The PDF is only to be used if the Online Learning Agreement is not used by the partner university or if technical problems occur while it is being created.
  • Confirmation of a Stay Abroad
  • OLS language test (before and after your stay)
  • EU Survey
  • Testimonial
  • Transcript of records of the partner university
  • Recognition letter

An explanation of all obligations, including deadlines, can be found in the downloads (checklist). The template for the document Confirmation of a Stay Abroad can also be found in the downloads. The fulfillment of all obligations is a prerequisite for the payment of the Erasmus+ grant.
