With a monthly grant, Erasmus+ offers students the opportunity to gain practical experience abroad during an internship. Here they can learn about other employment markets whilst enhancing their key qualifications, their cooperative and communication skills.
The so-called Mobility Grant is part of the Erasmus+ internship abroad program. It is intended to help cover the additional costs incurred when living abroad. The monthly grant payments depend on the country in which you complete your internship abroad.
Please note that Erasmus funding distinguishes between funding period and period of stay.
Internships are financially supported up to a total duration of 4 months, no scholarship is paid for the remaining period of stay.
Students planning to complete an internship in the UK will receive funding from the Erasmus 2020 fund. For internships in the UK that will be completed by May 31, 2023, students can receive an Erasmus grant of 555 euros/ month.
Please note: As of January 1, 2021 new visa regulations were introduced in the UK. Interns are required to apply for a visa (Temporary Worker-Government Authorized Exchange Visa (T5)), for which a "Certificate of Sponsorship" is required. Please contact the International Office as early as possible – at least 3 month before the start of the internship – to get more information.

Erasmus+ helps students and interns/trainees develop their language skills. Language development is assessed and supported using language tests (before and after the mobility period) and tutored language courses.
These languages are Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Spanish and Swedish. Over the next few years this service will be expanded to include all the languages of the European Union.The language tests are designed to help make your mobility period a success – they document the development of language skills. They are neither selective, nor are they a requirement for a receiving a grant. The system is entirely electronic: students and interns/trainees receive an email with login details for the online linguistic support platform where they can take tests and complete language courses.
