    Funding Opportunities for Students, Lecturers and Staff of the HfMDD

    Erasmus+ ist das Programm für Bildung, Jugend und Sport der Europäischen Union. In Erasmus+ werden die bisherigen EU-Programme für lebenslanges Lernen, Jugend und Sport sowie die europäischen Kooperationsprogramme im Hochschulbereich zusammengefasst.

    Mit den Fördermitteln wird vor allem die Mobilität in Europa gestärkt. Bis zum Jahr 2020 sollen rund zwei Millionen Studierende von Erasmus+ profitieren, darunter über eine Viertelmillion aus Deutschland. Einbezogen werden dabei Studierende in allen Studienzyklen bis einschließlich der Promotion, die ein Teilstudium oder Praktikum im Ausland absolvieren möchten. Erstmals können die Studierenden dabei im Bachelor, Master und Doktorat jeweils bis zu 12 Monate gefördert werden. Um den finanziellen Anreiz für einen Auslandsaufenthalt zu erhöhen, wird zudem der monatliche Mobilitätszuschuss für die Studierenden angehoben, insbesondere für Gastländer mit höheren Lebenshaltungskosten. Praktika im Ausland sind künftig auch nach Studienabschluss möglich.
    Erasmus+ trägt zudem zur weiteren Internationalisierung der Hochschulen mit der Förderung von Kurzzeitdozenturen und Weiterbildungsaufenthalten für das Lehr- bzw. Verwaltungspersonal bei.
    Unter dem Dach des EU-Bildungsprogrammes Erasmus+ werden folgende Mobilitätsmaßnahmen gefördert:

     

    • Auslandsstudium für Studierende (SMS)
    • Auslandspraktikum für Studierende (SMP)
    • Mobilität von Lehrenden (STA)
    • Mobilität von Personal (STT)
    • Studierende können in jedem Studienzyklus (Bachelor, Master, Doktorat) mehrfach gefördert werden (bis je max. 12 Monate)
    • In einzügigen Studiengängen (Staatsexamen, Diplom usw.) können 24 Monate gefördert werden.
    • Praktika können ab zwei Monaten (bislang drei Monate) während und nach Abschluss des Studiums gefördert werden.
    • Lehramtsassistenzen werden als Praktika gefördert.

    Jede Hochschuleinrichtung, die am EU-Programm für allgemeine und berufliche Bildung, Jugend und Sport 2014-2020 teilnehmen und/oder sich darum bewerben möchte, muss über eine gültige Erasmus Charta für die Hochschulbildung (ECHE) verfügen. 
    Die ECHE wurde von der Europäischen Kommission vergeben. Sie beweist, dass eine Hochschule alle Voraussetzungen für eine erfolgreiche Teilnahme am Erasmus+ Programm erfüllt.

    Study Abroad: Information for Erasmus+ Outgoings

    • Academic recognition of academic achievements abroad
    • Exemption from tuition fees at the host university
    • Support for additional costs incurred abroad
    • Support in preparation (cultural, linguistic, organisational)
    • Special grants for students with children
    • Special grants for students with disabilities
    • Regular matriculation at a German university
    • Completion of the first academic year
    • Study visit at a partner university with which the home university has concluded an Erasmus cooperation agreement (inter-institutional agreement)
    • Home and host universities have a valid Erasmus+ University Charter (ECHE)

    SMS Funding Rates (Student Mobility Studies)
    The financial support for Erasmus+ stays of students is based on the different living costs in the target countries („programme countries“). 

    Since the project year 2014, the following minimum levels for three groups of countries apply to study visits (SMS) throughout Europe:

    • Group 1 (250 euros per month): Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Norway, Sweden.
    • Group 2 (200 euros per month): Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Iceland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey.
    • Group 3 (150 euro per month): Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia.

    The monthly scholarships may be higher. This depends on the amount of funding that is available to the university per academic year.
    Die aktuellen Förderraten finden Sie hier als PDF

    Erasmus+ und BAföG
    BAföG-berechtigte Studierende können auch für den durch ERASMUS+ geförderten Auslandsaufenthalt BAföG erhalten. Weitere Informationen finden Sie unter: 
    www.studentenwerke.de/de/node/1047 

    Insurance

    The student must have sufficient insurance cover. The ERASMUS+ mobility grant does not include any insurance cover. Neither the European Commission, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) nor the institution are liable for damages resulting from illness, death, accident, injury to persons, loss or damage to property in connection with ERASMUS+ stays abroad (study, internship). 

    Please inquire in particular about the following insurances and conclude them if necessary: 

    • Travel insurance (including repatriation from abroad)
    • Liability insurance (professional and private liability, if applicable)
    • Accident and serious illness insurance (including full or partial incapacity for work)
    • Life insurance (including repatriation from abroad)


    All participants in the ERASMUS+ programme (including graduates/graduates) have the opportunity to be included in the DAAD group insurance, which offers comprehensive insurance cover. Further information can be found at www.daad.de/versicherung 

    The European Commission provides an online language test. This must be completed in the working language for all students/graduates both after the selection/before the start of the mobility and after the end of the stay. However, it is not a selection criterion for funding under the Erasmus+ programme and does not apply to native speakers. After selection of the participants to be sponsored in Erasmus+, the language test is to serve as a placement test to document their current language level. In order to obtain comparable results and to be able to record any progress made by the funded participants in language learning, it should take place both before their stay abroad and at the end of the respective stay abroad. 

    The systematic, Europe-wide review of the development of individual language competence enables an evaluation of the effectiveness of Erasmus+. 

    Agreements between partner institutions in inter-institutional agreement (IIA) and Learning Agreement (LA) on specific language levels are therefore neither to be taken nor confused with online tests. These language skills must be backed up by other certificates when selecting participants. 

    Erasmus+ is designed to promote equal opportunities and inclusion, which is why it facilitates access to the programme for learners from disadvantaged backgrounds (this applies in Germany under the Erasmus+ programme for single parents studying abroad) and those with special needs. 

    Special funding for participants with disabilities 

    Useful information on disability-friendly universities of the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education: www.european-agency.org 

    Special funding for students with children as a lump sum 
    Students who take their child/children with them to an Erasmus+ study visit in a programme country and who are single parents there during Erasmus+ mobility can receive special funding as a lump sum. The maximum monthly funding amount is specified by three country groups.

    Submission of the internal college application form for exchange studies in the following academic year by 15 January of the year at the latest.

    The financial support for Erasmus+ stays of trainees is based on the different living costs in the target countries ("programme countries").

    Since the project year 2014, the following minimum levels for three groups of countries apply to study visits (SMS) throughout Europe:

    • Group 1 (250 euros per month): Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Norway, Sweden.

    Mobility of Lecturers and Employees

    Financial support for Erasmus+ mobilities for teaching purposes or for further education and training is provided within the framework of business travel accounting in accordance with the Saxon Foreign Travel Expenses Ordinance. 


    German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)

    The support of German and foreign students and teachers is possible through participation in various DAAD programmes. The brochure "Studium, Forschung, Lehre im Ausland - Fördermöglichkeiten für Deutsche" (external link: www.daad.de), published annually by the DAAD and available at the college, provides comprehensive information on the individual programmes: E.g. one-year scholarship for music, Go east scholarship, international student competitions (group programme), specialist course scholarships for music, summer language course scholarships, group travel and other current announcements. For most applications you will have to use the DAAD standard forms. 

    Go to the DAAD standard forms 
    http://www.daad.de/ausland/ 

    In addition, DAAD funds are also allocated internally to foreign students for: Contact scholarships, grants for graduation, scholarships with supervision, support funds (for all four categories no personal applications are possible; proposals are usually made via the fields of study). 
    For Matching Funds scholarships, please refer to the public announcement at the college. The International Office of the College should be consulted regarding funding opportunities and the submission of applications.
