Studying abroad with Erasmus+
What is ERASMUS+?
The ERASMUS+ program is a funding program of the European Union.
The ERASMUS+ exchange opportunities of Anhalt University of Applied Sciences are based on numerous bilateral, subject-specific exchange agreements with European universities.
How much funding can you receive from Erasmus?
ERASMUS+ supports mobilities with so called program countries and partner countries. For all countries, scholarships have a fixed Monthly rate.
For the program countries, the amount of the monthly scholarship is based on 3 different country groups:
- Group 1: 420 € per month (Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom)
- Group 2: 360 € per month (Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus)
- Group 3: 300 € per month (Bulgaria, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Macedonia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary)
Currently Hochschule Anhalt has active ERASMUS+ projects with the following partner countries:
Albania, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Ukraine. Students who want to study abroad in these countries will receive an individual support of 700€ per month and a distance-related travel support (between 275€ and € 820€)
How long will ERASMUS+ be paid?
If you want to study at an ERASMUS + partner university, the funding will be paid between 3 to 12 months.
Furthermore, repeated additional funding is possible for an additional study cycle (Bachelor / Master).
Usually one semester of study lasts 5 months.
Each month is calculated with 30 days. The stays can be at least 90 and no more than 360 days long.
