Funding for mobility between programmes and partner countries is provided by several EU funding instruments for external cooperation. In order to ensure that this action responds to the EU`s external priorities, the Commission has defined a number of objectives and rules for cooperation with partner countries. Step 4 Evaluation process and outcome of the application to students and IRCs Upon receipt of a request for an in-depth exchange, the IRC of the host institution follows the internal institutional rules (e.g. .B. with teachers of the hauptstudium/specialization, head of department or jury, etc.) Information on the result of the application should be sent both to the IRC of the student`s (sending) institution and to the student. It is strongly recommended to send the results of applications to the sending institution as soon as possible (even in case of negative results). The timetable is set at the IIA (Chapter E) and the institution should set a realistic deadline for the processing of applications. Step 5 Conclusion of the learning agreement After confirmation by the host institution, the LA must be concluded and finalized in collaboration with the student and the managers, both in the sending institutions and in the host institutions. Step 6 Scholarship agreement signed by students and home university Students can benefit from an EU Erasmus+ grant to cover travel and living expenses related to the study/training stay abroad. The amount of the scholarship depends on the country of the host institution. The NAs of the home institution and the home institution are responsible for determining the exact amounts of aid for each of the three groups of countries (s.43) and for publishing the information on their websites. All students travelling to the same group of countries for the same type of mobility must receive the same amount.
Students who complete internships receive an additional top-up of the EU grant of 100 to 200 euros per month. The exact amount is set by NAs and/or higher education institutions. Students from disadvantaged backgrounds can apply for an additional Erasmus scholarship of between €100 and €200 per month. No additional support is available for international credit mobility. A scholarship agreement for the mobility period is signed between the student and the sending institution. Different remuneration models are possible (e.g.B. Payment per semester or after a period of two months). When international credit mobility is organised, the higher education of the programme country enters into agreements for both contract and recoming students.
In addition to the scholarship for studies, international mobility students also benefit from a travel scholarship. EU Zero Scholarships for Students: Students with a zero EU grant are participants in mobility actions who do not receive an EU grant in relation to travel and livelihoods, but who otherwise meet all the mobility criteria for students and who enjoy all the benefits of an Erasmus+ student. Students with a zero EU grant can benefit from a regional, national or other grant to contribute to their mobility costs. Their number is included in the statistics of the performance indicator used for the allocation of the EU budget between countries. Step 7 Language examination/courses From 2014, the European Commission will gradually set up a European online language support service that will provide participants in credit mobility activities with an instrument to assess their knowledge of the language they will use to study abroad and to take an online language course to improve their skills. . . .
