Erasmus+ KA 107 - Information for Students
Through Erasmus+ KA 107, students of all levels (Bachelor, Master, PhD) are given the opportunity to study abroad and gain international experience. They are not only granted financial support through the programme, but can also benefit from the personal support given to them by the respective international offices. This website serves to inform interested students about the Erasmus+ KA 107 scholarship in general, and provides students coming to Göttingen with practical information concerning their mobility and stay in Germany.
General Information for Incoming and Outgoing StudentsFinancial Support
- Outgoing students (from Germany to partner country): 700 EUR per completed month
- Incoming students (from partner country to Germany): 850 EUR per completed month
The final amount of the individual support for the mobility period shall be determined by multiplying the number of months of the mobility covered by Erasmus+ EU funds with the rate applicable per month for the receiving country concerned. In the case of incomplete months, the financial support from Erasmus+ EU funds is calculated by multiplying the number of days in the incomplete month with 1/30 of the unit cost per month.For grant support to travel costs in the Erasmus+ Programme, travel distances must be calculated using the distance calculator.
Travel Insurance: All grant holders are insured by a central Group Insurance (covering Health Insurance, Liability Insurance, Accident Insurance and Assistance Insurance), which will be centrally organised by the Project Coordination Team at the institution. The participant shall have adequate insurance coverage. The insurance costs (approximately 0,99 EUR per day) are deducted from the individual support.Please note that there was a change in German legislation related to the residence title for study purposes. In the future, all incoming international students are required to get a German public health insurance in addition to the travel insurance mentioned above. The law affects all mobilities from October 2018 onwards. The German public health insurance costs approx. 90-100 € per month. All incoming students will be informed upon their arrival/during the introductory days how to get this insurance.
In preparation of the mobility, participants are required to hand in various documents. One very important document is the so-called Learning Agreement in which the courses that a student would like to attend at the host university are agreed on. Furthermore, the recognition of these courses at the student's home university is arranged in this form as well.Here you can take a look at the Learning Agreement form: Learning Agreement Studies More information on filling in the Learning Agreement: Learning Agreement - Guidelines
The Erasmus+ Programme aims at promoting equity and inclusion by facilitating the access to participants with disadvantaged backgrounds and fewer opportunities compared to their peers whenever disadvantage limits or prevents participation in transnational activities such as:
- disability (i.e. participants with special needs): people with mental (intellectual, cognitive, learning), physical, sensory or other disabilities;
- educational difficulties: young people with learning difficulties; early school-leavers; low qualified adults; young people with poor school performance;
- economic obstacles: people with a low standard of living, low income, dependence on social welfare system or homeless; young people in long-term unemployment or poverty; people in debt or with financial problems;
- cultural differences: immigrants or refugees or descendants from immigrant or refugee families; people belonging to a national or ehnic minority; people with linguistic adaptation and cultural inclusion difficulties;
- health problems: people with chronic health problems, severe illnesses or psychiatric conditions;
- social obstacles: people facing discrimination because of gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, etc.; people with limited social skills or anti-social or risky behaviors; people in a precarious situation; (ex-)offenders, (ex-)drug or alcohol abusers; young and/or single parents; orphans;
- geographical obstacles: people from remote or rural areas; people living in small islands or in peripheral regions; people from urban problem zones; people from less serviced areas (limited public transport, poor facilities).
In the field of youth support, an Inclusion and Diversity Strategy has been designed as a common framework to support the participation and inclusion of young persons.Please note, it is possible to apply for exceptional funding available through DAAD (you can find further information here). In case you need any kind of support in this regard, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Practical Information for Incoming StudentsVisa
- Invitation Letter
- Insurance Policy
- Enrollment Letter With these documents, you need to go to the German embassy in your home country and apply for a visa. Since we are working only with electronic signatures and not sending out the paper documents, please print all the received documents in colour and good quality for the visa services. The right type of visa for you is a student D-visa. Do not apply for a Schengen visa. That’s a tourist or business visa, not meant for studying and not extendable! When applying for the student D-visa, please mention that you will be a grantee of a publicly funded scholarship programme, and that the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen was significantly involved in the selection of candidates. On these grounds you ask for a D-visa according to § 34 without previous consent of the local Göttingen Foreigner’s Office. Please make sure that you apply for a student visa in time. If possible, ask the embassy or consulate to issue the visa for the full time of your stay. If they do not agree and issue it for only 3 months, that is equally fine. More information on how to prolong your visa in Germany will be given to you at our first meeting in Göttingen.
