What is PROMOS?
With this mobility program of the DAAD studies, internships and language stays of students as well as study trips abroad are funded by granting scholarships and travel aids.
The scholarships are awarded through the International Office of the Anhalt University in a quality-oriented selection process.
The amount of the scholarship rates and travel aids depends on the destination country, and the funding rates of the DAAD.
Can I apply for PROMOS?
Students of all study programs at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences can apply for financial support for their stays abroad.
The following stays are supported:
Study visits (1 to 6 months)
- Both short stays (also for thesis) as well as semester scholarships for study visits of students in Bachelor's and Master's programs can be funded. Tuition fees are not covered.
- As a rule, semester scholarships in the ERASMUS area are only possible where there is no ERASMUS cooperation for this subject area. Exceptions are students who have already been supported within an ERASMUS cooperation and can therefore no longer receive a grant in the framework of ERASMUS or if the quota of the existing cooperation is exhausted.
Internships (6 weeks to 6 months)
- Internships for students are generally eligible for funding worldwide. Due to overlaps with the ERASMUS internship program, internships in the ERASMUS area can not be funded.
Language courses (3 weeks to 6 months)
- Language courses from students to public universities abroad can be funded worldwide. In addition, a one-off course fee per person of 500 EUR can be requested.
