In addition to the daily allowances, travel costs will be subsidised according to the actual distance between the place of departure and the final destination of the mobility. Distances can be calculated using the distance calculator from the European Commission.

The minimum duration of the stay abroad is five days and the maximum is 60 days. For mobility for teaching purposes at least eight teaching hours per week must be taught.

Special funding for staff with severe disabilities

On application, you will receive the additional financial requirement of up to 10,000 € in addition to the regular Erasmus+ funding. An individual estimate will be made of the additional costs that are expected to arise during Erasmus+ mobility or in the host country and that will not be covered by other funding institutions. These include, for example, additional costs for barrier-free accommodation, travel assistance, medical care abroad, adaptation of learning materials or an accompanying person.

  • The degree of disability must be at least 50 %
  • The additional special funding can only be applied for for periods of time that are funded by Erasmus+
  • This type of special support requires a detailed application for special support. You can obtain the application documents from the International Office. The detailed application must be submitted to the DAAD at least 2 months before the start of the stay abroad.

  • Copy of Disability Pass

  • Rejection of other funding institutions (integration offices, health insurance, landscape associations, social services, student services)

  • After the stay abroad: proof of the costs arisen (plane tickets, rental contracts, work contracts with support staff, proof of payments etc).
