General information about the programme

Erasmus+ - the European Union's programme for education, youth and sport.
Erasmus+ combines the previous EU programmes for lifelong learning, youth and sport as well as European cooperative higher education programmes.

The programme comprises three key objectives:

Erasmus+ has a budget of around 14.8 billion euros. More than four million people will profit from these EU resources by 2020. The programme, which will run for seven years, is intended to improve skills and employability and to modernise general and professional training structures and youth work.

Information about the Erasmus+ can be found on the European Commission's website:

Above all, the subsidies have strengthened mobility in Europe and from 2015, to a lesser extent, in other parts of the world. By 2020, around two million students, around a quarter of a million from Germany, will have benefited from Erasmus+. The programme is open to students at all levels of study, up to and including PhD, who would like to undertake part of their studies or gain work experience abroad. Bachelor, masters and PhD students can all receive up to 12 months of support. Work placements abroad will also be possible after graduation in future.

In addition, Erasmus+ contributes to the further internationalisation of higher education by funding short-term lectureships and training in residence overseas for teaching and administrative staff.
Subsidies for the majority of mobility schemes and strategic partnerships are assigned by the respective national agencies in the programme's 33 participating countries (28 EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Norway, Turkey). In Germany, as before, this role is undertaken by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD):

The European Commission has awarded the University Speyer with an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.

Every higher education institution which is either participating or would like to apply to participate in the EU Programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport 2014-2020 (henceforth referred to as "the programme") must have a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE). The ECHE is awarded by the European Commission. It certifies that a higher education institution fulfils all the criteria for successful participation in the Erasmus+ programme.

Student Mobility for Studies (SMS)

What is to be understood by Erasmus+ "Student Mobility for Studies (SMS)"?

With the help of Erasmus+, students can undertake study abroad from 3-12 months at one of our ERASMUS+ partner universities.

Among other things, this allows them the opportunity to broaden their intercultural horizons and to familiarise themselves with the university and research system of another European country.

Students can receive funding for up to 12 months (one or more mobilities) at all levels of study (bachelors, masters, PhD).

How do I apply?

ERASMUS+ places at partner universities are limited. If there are more applicants than places, decisions are made by an internal university selection committee. The selected students are then subsequently nominated by the partner university. Please submit ERASMUS+ applications to the International Academic Office.


As a rule, applications should be made around 9 months before the start of the planned mobility. With regards to application deadlines for individual institutions, please contact the International Academic Office (reinke@uni-speyer.de) or the EMPA coordinator, Johannes C. Mayer (mayer@uni-speyer.de). Criteria for selection include previous academic performance, academic and personal motivation for study abroad, a study project, language skills and social engagement.

Documents which need to be submitted as part of the application include a letter of motivation, CV, transcript of records and a language certificate.
Recognition of academic performance achieved whilst abroad

Teaching Staff Mobility (STA)

Mobility for teaching purposes

Erasmus+ funds guest lectureships at European partner universities that are in possession of a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE). Through their mobility, guest lecturers should strengthen the European dimension of their host university, add to the courses on offer and impart their expertise to students, who either do not want or are unable to study abroad.
Wherever possible, the development of common study programmes with partner universities, as well as the exchange of teaching content and methods should be a part of the process.

For teaching purposes, university staff from a German university possessing an ECHE can undertake a funded mobility at a host university that possesses an ECHE (outgoing mobility)

Teaching mobilities within Europe last between two days and two months (excluding travel time); the minimum number of teaching hours is at least 8 per week, or per mobility if shorter than a week.

The following groups of persons are eligible for funding:

Funding rates ST

Financial support for Erasmus mobilities for teaching or training purposes is dependent on the variant living costs of the respective host countries ("programme countries"). There is a uniform daily rates for funding through German universities.

Since the 2014 project year, the following fixed daily rates have been applied for the four country groups up to the 14th day of mobility; from the 15th to the 60th day, the support is 70% of the named rate:

Aside from the daily rate, travel costs are ascertained from the real distance between the home country and the host country, by means of a
calculation tool, which is used uniformly across Europe.

The following are the rates of reimbursement according to the mobility and dependent on distance:

Staff Mobility for Training (STT)

Erasmus+ with partner countries KA 107 (Georgia)

Since 2015, through the so-called "international dimension" (KA107) of Erasmus+, mobilities outside the previous geographical confines of the programme have also been funded. Both outgoing and incoming mobilities can be realised through this feature of the programme. This applies to both student and staff mobility (as of yet, Erasmus+ work placements are not included in this part of the programme). This means that not only can staff and students associated with the German University of Administrative Sciences Speyer undertake mobilities with partner institutions, but also vice versa.

The German University of Administrative Sciences Speyer successfully participated in the quality-oriented selection process. Within the framework of Key Action 107, the following mobility projects in cooperation with the Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University in Tbilisi (Georgia) are available up until 31/07/2018:

Staff mobility for training:

Speyer-> Tbilisi: 1 participant 7 days
Tbilisi-> Speyer: 1 participant 7 days

Teaching staff mobility:

Speyer-> Tbilisi: 1 participant 7 days
Tbilisi-> Speyer: 1 participant 7 days

Student mobility (studying):

Speyer-> Tbilisi: 1 participant 90 days
Tbilisi-> Speyer: 1 participant 90 days

Funding for ERASMUS+ mobilities in partner countries, likewise for mobilities in Germany from partner countries, has been determined on a pan-European level by the European Commission.

Student Mobility for Studies (SMS):

In addition to the stipend, there is a single lump-sum payment for travel costs, which is measured by distance and derived from the calculation tool used by the European Commission.
