The Confirmation of Participation (available for download in Mobility Online) certifies the duration of your stay and is the basis for the exact day calculation of your scholarship.
Print out the document and have your Incoming Coordinator at the International Office of the partner university complete and sign it before your departure.
The Erasmus+ scholarship is linked to a stay in the host country according to the guidelines of the EU Commission. The EU Commission distinguishes between physical, blended and virtual mobility. It is important to emphasise that this refers to the place(s) of stay during your mobility and not to the form of teaching: physical mobility refers to mobility during which you spend all of your time in the host country (and attend classes there in person and/or virtually), and virtual mobility refers to purely virtual participation in the activities of the host university from Germany. In a blended mobility, you spend part of your exchange semester physically in the host country and part in Germany, during which you then study virtually at the host university.
The start date is the first day on which you are physically or virtually present at the partner university for academic purposes (e.g. start of lectures, welcome event, start of a language course at the partner university).
The end date is the last day on which you are physically or virtually present at the partner university for academic purposes (e.g. end of lectures, last exam/examination).
If you arrive earlier or leave later for private reasons, this will not be confirmed in the Confirmation and will not be included in your scholarship calculation. Mandatory quarantine periods upon entry into the host country can be included in the funding with proof. Quarantine periods upon return to the home country, on the other hand, cannot be funded as a mobility phase.
