Students or lecturers wishing to receive an ERASMUS Mobility grant must be enrolled (as a student or doctoral candidate) at Heidelberg University. Students must be in at least their third semester of study and fulfil all application requirements for their subject at the beginning of their period of study abroad. The following students may apply for an ERASMUS scholarship:
- Citizens of an EU Member State or of another country which participates in the ERASMUS Programme
- Students who have been officially recognised as a refugee or stateless person in Germany, and who have been granted permanent residence in Germany (permanent residence permit)
- Non-EU residents, provided that they are enrolled in a full-time degree programme at Heidelberg University
The ERASMUS scholarship may be received at the same time as BAföG funding for study abroad (Auslands-BAföG) and scholarships received from public foundations. The simultaneous receipt of additional funding for periods abroad from other EU programmes is, however, prohibited.
The documents in support of an application for an exchange in your subject, or one of your subjects, must be submitted to the responsible ERASMUS coordinators. The partner university should be chosen on the basis of the student’s language skills, and in particular, on the basis of subject-specific requirements. The relevant ERASMUS coordinators are responsible for selecting the students who will receive an ERASMUS scholarship. In accordance with the subject-specific nature of the exchange programme, specific application requirements are stipulated by individual faculties/institutes. It is generally the case that an application for an ERASMUS scholarship will include the applicant’s curriculum vitae, transcript of records and proof of language proficiency.
Students will be selected between December and April for periods of study abroad which will take place in the coming academic year i.e. for the winter semester of the same year and for the summer semester of the following year. For more information please contact the relevant ERASMUS coordinators, see the information notices or information on your institute’s website.
If your application was successful, your ERASMUS coordinators will require you to complete a Declaration of Acceptance. You will hereby make a contractually binding declaration, confirming your acceptance of the ERASMUS university place and of the regulations of the ERASMUS programme. The ERASMUS coordinators will then register you at the relevant host university and at the international relations office.
