How do I apply for an Erasmus+ grant?
After you’ve been nominated for an exchange in your desired country and you have applied to the receiving institution, you sign the grant agreement with your home university. This assigns you the status “Erasmus+ student”, which is a condition for receiving the grant. At the earliest 20 days before your departure, you’ll find the corresponding document on Mobility Online. You must sign it and upload it to receive the grant.
How do I receive the money?
The payment consists of two rates: 80% at the beginning and 20% afterwards. The OeAD sends the money to your bank account. The grant is calculated exactly to the date. You need to provide the recognition sheet of your university for the second rate.
What do I have to pay attention to?
Before your departure you have to sign and upload the grant agreement because this gives you the Erasmus+ status. During your stay abroad you need to comply with the conditions (3 ECTS per month) to receive the funding. You can get the necessary documents from the Erasmus office at your university or the OeAD.
How long can I claim the grant?
You can claim the Erasmus+ scholarship for two to twelve months per study cycle (bachelor, master, PhD). However, you do not have to do all twelve months at one. For example, you could also do two separate semesters with six months each, if you want to.
