Erasmus+ Programme for studying in Europe
Erasmus+ grants for studying abroad
The Erasmus+ grant is only intended to assist you with additional costs incurred through living abroad. It is not enough to cover all your expenses and should not be relied on for essential living costs such as food and rent. If you normally apply for a maintenance loan and/or grant (ex. "Bafög") to fund your studies in Germany, we strongly recommend that you do so for your period abroad (ex. "Auslandsbafög").
- 420 € /month for host countries (group 1): Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom
- 360 € / month for host countries (group 2): Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus
- 300 € / month for host countries (group 3): Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, FYROM, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary
These rates are valid from the summer term 2020. Please be aware that applications for remaining exchange spots ("Restplätze", after 31 January, for the next academic year) may differ due to the pre-calculated Erasmus-budget.
You can only receive an Erasmus+ grant for a maximum of 12 months in each study level (i.e. undergraduate/ Bachelor's degree or postgraduate/ Master's degree). The exchange period must last a minimum of 3 consecutive months and a maximum of 12 consecutive months. The minimum duration cannot fall below 3 whole months or 90 days.
The exchange must be full-time. The exchange period should count towards your degree and you need to receive at least 15 ECTS credits at your host institution while abroad.
