General information on student mobility (SMS + SMP)

Erasmus+ Student Charter

The rights and obligations of students in the Erasmus+ programme are set out in the "Erasmus+ Student Charter", which is given to each student before the beginning of the stay abroad and is also available online.

Special funding

Inclusion and equal opportunities are central to the Erasmus+ programme. Single parents and students with reduced mobility, special needs or chronic illness can receive additional funding. Further information and assistance with the application process can be obtained from the International Office or directly from

Online language support (OLS)

With the exception of native speakers, students in the Erasmus+ program must take an internet-based language test from the European Commission (OLS) before the start of the mobility. It is intended to measure and document the development of language skills before the stay abroad, but is not a selection criterion for Erasmus+ funding.

The OLS language course enables students and trainees to improve their foreign language skills before and during their stay abroad. After the OLS language test, all those whose language level ranges from A1 to B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) are automatically invited to a language course in the national language/language of instruction/working language of the target country. At a higher language level, the language course can optionally be used in the national language or in the main working language tested.

Further language support

  •     Language teaching at the university

  •     Language courses abroad

    A local language course can also be supported by the Erasmus+ programme. For this, the International Office requires a confirmation of successful participation in the course with start and end date of the course as well as a receipt for the course fees paid. Please contact the International Office first in order to clarify whether the language course is eligible for funding.

Note on insurance cover

There is no insurance cover when promoting mobility under the Erasmus+ programme. Neither the European Commission nor the DAAD are liable for damages resulting from illness, death, accident, injury to persons, loss of or damage to property in connection with Erasmus+ stays abroad (studies, internships, guest lectureships or Erasmus+ training measures).  It is the responsibility of participants to ensure that they have adequate insurance cover abroad. Liability, accident and health insurance should be available and must even be proven for internships. There is the possibility to insure yourself via the DAAD group insurance.
