ERASMUS OutgoingMobility Grant Amounts

Students who attend a European partner university as part of the ERASMUS programme are exempt from paying tuition fees to the host institution. Students also receive a grant to cover extra costs which may arise during their period abroad. The Mobility grant amount varies from year to year as it is dependant on the grant allowance amount set by the European Commission. Certain amounts have, however, been determined for each country. Unfortunately, the exact amount of the grant can be announced only at short notice, after the ERASMUS grant allowance amount is published by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

ERASMUS scholarship holders receive a range of organisational help. Students do not need to apply individually to the partner university; the programme representative from Heidelberg University will register students on their behalf. Within the weeks following registration, the host university will contact the scholarship holder and send them various information. Accommodation is often offered in halls of residence and specific language courses and orientation events are organised for ERASMUS scholarship holders.

Additional Financial Support

Students with children, and students with a disability as of grade 30 have the opportunity to apply for additional financial support to cover further costs which may arise. For further information on this support, please contact the International Relations Office in good time (approximately one year) before your period of study abroad begins.

Combinability with BAföG and scholarships

The ERASMUS grant can be combined with BAföG. Students receiving the national “Inlands-BAföG” are normally also entitled to the international "Auslands-BAföG". For integrated educational training periods in the frame of the ERASMUS programme, it comprises additional funds for travel costs and possibly additional allowances for health insurance costs and rent. Please keep in mind to apply early (generally at least 6 months prior to your stay abroad).

An ERASMUS place can also be combined with a scholarship from a private foundation (Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, etc.). In this case it is possible to receive the ERASMUS place and therefore the exemption from tuition fees, as well as the ERASMUS mobility grant. The ERASMUS mobility grant may not be credited against other national scholarships, i.e. they may neither be reduced nor suspended.
