Abroad BAföG

BAföG-eligible students should also claim BAföG for the stay abroad with Erasmus+. With the BAföG regulation in force since 2011,(EU) grants up to a maximum of 300 EUR/month remain credit-free. This applies regardless of the designation of the grant as a partial, full or top-up grant or as a mobility grant awarded on the basis of performance or talent. Grants in excess of 300 EUR/month are offset against benefits from BAföG.

Academic recognition of your internship

The European Commission attaches great importance to the academic recognition of internships abroad. The recognition procedure of internships abroad can be found here.

The European Commission requires the inclusion of the successfully completed internship abroad in the student's Diploma Supplement or an equivalent document. By signing the ECHE, our partner universities have committed to this.  

If you encounter any difficulties regarding academic recognition, please feel free to contact KOOR - Erasmus Services BW. We can contact the contact person in your International Office and/or your contact person in the department in such a case.

For graduate students, please contact us.

For graduate students, it is recommended to include the stay abroad in the Europass Mobility. 

Special funding for students with disabilities

Erasmus+ aims to promote equal opportunities and inclusion, which is why students with special needs can access the program more easily. Useful information on disability-friendly universities from the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education can be found here.

There are two different application processes:

Flat-rate application
If you have a GdB of at least 20 or a chronical disease that will verifiably cause additional costs during your stay abroad, you can receive a lump sum subsidy to the monthly funding rate in the amount of 250, - euros per month. As proof, you must submit a copy of your disability certificate or, in case of a chronical disesase, a certificate from your doctor declaring that additional costs are being caused by this chronical disease.

Alternatively, you can apply for funding of up to EUR 15,000 via an independent application. The application must be submitted to the DAAD at least two months before the start of the mobility and is applicable for the above mentioned group of persons.

Preparatory travel

If you have a GdB of min. 20 or a chronical disease and have received a funding commitment from KOOR - Erasmus Services BW, you can explore the conditions on site during a preparatory trip (low barrier housing, accessibility to the workplace, etc.). The lump sum can also be applied for an accompanying person. The original application must be received by the DAAD at least four weeks before the requested start of the trip.
