Funding period and payment

The funding is paid out in 2 instalments (daily settlement after completion of the mobility). The first instalment will be paid before the start of the internship, the second instalment will be paid after submission of all necessary documents (e.g. experience report).

Participating students will be informed about the exact payment modalities and other funding conditions with their Grant Agreement.

The minimum duration for an Erasmus+ internship is 2 months (= 60 days). If the minimum duration is not reached, the entire entitlement to funding expires. In the event of cancellation due to illness, proof (= medical certificate) must be submitted. In this case, even if the minimum duration is not reached, the proportion of days actually spent studying abroad can be retained and only the amounts paid in excess must be repaid.

Options for additional funding:

  • Additional funding for sustainable travel (Green Travel Top Up)

Participating students can receive a one-off top-up of €50 per mobility for sustainable travel. They also have the opportunity to claim up to 4 additional days of travel as days of stay . "Green Travel" is defined as travel where the following means of transport are used for the main part of the journey (proof required!): Bus, carpooling, train, other sustainable means of transport (e.g. walking)

  • Additional funding for participants with fewer opportunities (social top-up)

Participating students who meet at least one of the eligibility criteria described below can receive additional funding of €250/month for social participation (Social TOP-UP):

Gainfully employed students:

Students are considered to be in employment if they are working in order to finance their living costs or their studies.

Students in gainful employment must have worked for at least 6 months in the 12 months prior to the start of the semester abroad and have earned between €450 and €850 net per month on average.

As a rule, self-employed activities, compulsory internships and dual/part-time study programmes with a fixed salary are excluded from employment.

Cancellation is not a prerequisite; the employment contract can also be paused.

First-time graduates (students from a non-academic family:

  • Both parents or carers do not have a degree from a university, university of applied sciences, university of cooperative education in Germany or abroad.

Students with child/children:

  • At least one of their own children must be travelling with them during the entire stay abroad. Funding is also possible if the partner is travelling with the student; double funding for the child must be ruled out

Students with a chronic illness:

  • There is a chronic illness that causes additional financial needs abroad.

Students with a disability:

  • There is a disability with a degree of disability of 20 or more.

Real cost funding (from project 2022)

Participants with a disability or chronic illness and participants with children can claim real costs.

This requires an application to the DAAD National Agency. The corresponding link to the DAAD website will be published here as soon as it is available.

Students in the Zelgruppe have the opportunity to apply for a subsidy of up to 15,000 euros per semester for the real additional costs of mobility abroad as part of this application.

As various supporting documents must be provided for such an application and the processing time is usually several months, interested students should contact the International Office early (ideally at the time of their application for an Erasmus+ place).

Students whose studies or internships abroad cannot be covered by the ERASMUS programme have the opportunity to submit a PROMOS application. This programme provides funding for study and practical placements as well as short stays such as language courses and summer schools for students worldwide in the form of partial scholarships, travel allowances and course fee lump sums.

PROMOS applications for an internship abroad can be submitted via Mobility Online.

To promote the internationalisation of Bavarian universities and student mobility, the State Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs, Science and the Arts (StMBKWK) has made funding available for internships and study abroad, which can be granted upon application by outgoing students (as an alternative to PROMOS or ERASMUS) or foreign students (incoming students).

The respective funding depends on the total amount of funding made available to Landshut University of Applied Sciences each year and can therefore vary considerably.

Please submit your application via Mobility Online.

The selection for the scholarships that are administered directly at the university (ERASMUS/PROMOS/StaMi) takes place in accordance with the following principles:

  • transparent application procedure
  • qualitative selection procedure (selection committee HS management and IO)
  • Information and counselling on application and possible funding amounts
  • non-discriminatory selection (in the sense of the AGG). ERASMUS+ aims to promote equal opportunities and inclusion. For this reason, access to the ERASMUS+ programme is facilitated for learners from disadvantaged backgrounds and with special needs.
  • Selection based on the following objective, performance-related criteria:
    • Academic performance and progress
    • Meaningfulness of the stay abroad
    • language skills
    • Only for ERASMUS: Completion of a mandatory ONLINE language test
    • only for StaMi applications: annual income (incl. parental support) on average max. 15,000 euros before the stay
  • Prompt information about the decision (usually in the summer semester in February and in the winter semester at the beginning of August)

All funding recipients are obliged to submit a report of at least one page to the International Office immediately after completing the programme.

ERASMUS+ participants will also receive an ONLINE link from the DAAD at the end of their stay abroad. Please note that the reports must be completed in order to receive the total funding!

The International Office will be happy to answer any further questions you may have.

The application portal is a dialogue system. The steps that have already been completed appear as green boxes, the next steps to be completed are marked with red boxes. If you are stuck in your application workflow, this means that you will have to wait for a response from the International Office. This will be sent either directly in the portal or by e-mail. As soon as the corresponding box is ticked "green", you can continue working on your workflow. Once you have entered the data, you must confirm this by clicking on the "Create new" button. Documents that you upload must be in pdf format.

After the online application and before the ERASMUS+ stay

The International Office will automatically send you the Erasmus+ Learning Agreement Student Mobility for Traineeships AFTER your application, as well as a form for confirming international health insurance and a link to the language test (OLS). A Grant Agreement will then be issued for the funding.

Please proceed as follows:

  • Create the ERASMUS+ Learning Agreement for Traineeships (TA) in Mobility Online, print it out and have it signed by your traineeship supervisor in the destination country. Afterwards, please upload it back into the system. The TA will then be signed and approved by the International Office.
  • Upload the proof of insurance in Mobility Online
  • If you are entitled to top-ups (e.g. severe disability, Green Travel), please also complete the declaration on honour for top-ups and upload it to the system together with the relevant supporting documents
  • If your application is successful, you will receive the ERASMUS Grant Agreement from us via the system. Sign the Grant Agreement, upload it to Mobility Online and submit the original to the International Office.

At the end of your internship abroad, you must process and submit the following documents, which will be made available to you via Mobility Online, within 4 weeks:

  • Traineeship Agreement (after the mobility)
