Stay abroad in the United Kingdom:


Due to contractual provisions between the European Commission and the UK, the following currently applies to the PLUS and its outgoing students: An Erasmus exchange with all currently existing partnerships in the UK is possible until May 31st 2023. The minimum duration of an Erasmus stay for study purpose is 3 months or for an internship 2 months. Erasmus funding in this frame will only be possible with regard to the available budget. The deadline for applications for an Erasmus scholarship for studies or internship in the UK during the whole academic year 2022/23 is June 15th 2022 – until further notice. Therefore, please also submit any applications for the summer semester 2023 by this deadline.

A planned Erasmus stay in the UK beyond May 31st 2023 might be possible (after consultation with the respective partner institution), but will no longer be funded within this programme. Funding programmes and opportunities beyond this are currently the subject of negotiations.
