Criteria for an internship abroad with Erasmus+:
At Kempten University of Applied Sciences, internships around Europe are funded for a maximum of five months (any additional time spent abroad is classified as “zero grant”).
Funding rate from Summer Semester 2022:
|Category of country||Monthly funding rate|
|Group 1 (DK, FI, IE, IS, LI, LU, NO, SE)||€ 600|
|Group 2 (AT, BE, CY, DE, ES, FR, GR, IT, MT, NL, PT)||€ 540|
|Group 3 (CS, CZ,BG, EE, HR, HU, LT, LV, MK, PL, RO, SI, SK, TR)||€ 480|
Except UK, where internships can now only be subsidised using residual funds from the previous generation of the Erasmus+ programme (See note about Brexit). The monthly funding rate for the UK is € 555 (maximum € 2,775 in total) and internships must be completed no later than 31 May 2023.
To be eligible for funding, you must physically reside in the host country. Purely virtual mobility doesn’t qualify for funding.
Students with special needs (disability level 20+) and students with child/ren can also be awarded special funding in addition to the above-cited “regular” grant, as it’s a key aim of the Erasmus+ programme to ensure all potential recipients benefit from inclusion and equal opportunities. The “social top-up” is currently worth € 250 per month.
In addition to the “social top-up”, students with a disability level of 20+ can also apply for reimbursement of further costs that might be incurred. The International Office will be happy to advise you on this.
The Erasmus+ programme supports sustainable travel to or from your host country in the form of a one-off subsidy worth € 50, plus up to four days’ additional qualifying period for funding. If you use low-emission transport such as buses, trains or car-sharing for most of your return journey, you can apply for a subsidy at the of your stay abroad via the International Office.
