- Financing options
You would like to go abroad to one of our project partners, but you don't know exactly how to finance it? Then you have come to the right page!
On this page we would like to give you a brief overview of some financing options for your stay abroad.
For information on other scholarship programs and other opportunities to go abroad, please contact the International Office of the SUH.
For our European partners in Italy and the Czech Republic it is possible to apply for Erasmus+ funding.
Generally, we recommend a length of stay of one semester (2 months or more). However, since this year shorter stays are also possible through the Short Blended Intensive Program from Erasmus+. This program combines a shorter stay abroad (5-30 days) with a virtual component at the partner university.
Funding rates are staggered by country groups:
For a stay at the university in Italy you will receive 390,00 € per month.
For a stay at the university in the Czech Republic 330,00 € per month.
For the winter semester the application deadline ist the 15 January of each year. For the winter semester 2022 you can apply for a stay with our partners via the TRANSLANG project with the following application form and the documents mentioned in it: Application form

Insurance: monthly 35,00 €

Mobility allowance: one-time 775,00 €

Tuition fees will be paid
For the winter semester the application deadline ist the 15 of January of each year.
You apply for a stay with our partners directly via the TRANSLANG project with the following application form and the documents mentioned in it: Application form.
For stays in Mexico or Egypt it is also possible to apply for a PROMOS scholarship at the International Office. Both, short-term scholarships (from 1 month) as well as scholarships for study stays for up to one semester can be funded.
The amount of the scholarship instalments or travel allowances depends on the respective destination country. Tuition fees cannot be covered.
For a stay in the second half of the year the application deadline is 15 June of each year directly at the International Office.
Further information on PROMOS can be found on the following page.
Auslandsbafög (student grant in foreign countries)
Often, it is also worth to apply for Auslandsbafög, as the rates abroad are higher. Information about which office is responsible for your destination country can be found here. Normally, you can receive Bafög in addition to other scholarships, but the rate can be reduced by the responsible office due to the existing scholarship.
