International Focus ERASMUS+ ERASMUS grant for internship

ERASMUS grant for internships in Europe

ERASMUS for internship abroad

The application for ERASMUS-grant for your internship abroad is quite easy (see documents below).

But first you have to find a internship and sign a contract. To find a internship please take a look at: ERASMUSINTERN, EURES, Global Placements, job and talent.


The amount of the ERASMUS-grant awarded to each participating student depends on the following factors:

  • Your host country
  • The exact length of your programme abroad
  • The ERASMUS-budget that was approved for hdpk
  • If applicable, funding for special needs (for participants with disabilities and students with children)

The amount of the ERASMUS grant 2019/2020 per month (30 Tage):

  • 555€: Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom
  • 495€: Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus
  • 435€: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Macedonia (FYROM)

The grant will be paid in two installments:

  • 70% in the beginning
  • 30% after the completion of the mobility

More details will be provided in the ERASMUS-Grant Agreement which each participant will receive once selected for an ERASMUS- grant.

The ERASMUS-programme is not designed to cover the entire cost of the mobility, but rather the additional expenses which are associated with it. It is up to the participant, however, to request additional funding from suitable sources, or to supplement the expenses with his/her own funds.

Should the ERASMUS-budget not be sufficient to provide all eligible outgoing students with an ERASMUS-stipend, you will be subject to a selection process.

The following selection criteria will be applied in the following order:

  • Deadline: Timely application to participate in the study abroad programme and submission of the initial ERASMUS-documents (fully completed and duly signed) four weeks before the internship
  • Previous Participation: ERASMUS-applications of students who have never before received an ERASMUS/ERASMUS LLP stipend will be treated with a higher priority
  • Academic Performance: ERASMUS-applications of students with a high grade point average will be treated with a higher priority

Before your internship:

Application for ERASMUS-grant can be submitted always. But we advise to submit/sent the documents (see below) complete to the International Office to Elisa Barth (elisa.barth@srh.de) of the SRH University Berlin four weeks before the start of the internship.

  • Data sheet-internship
  • Current Enrollment Certificate (CampusNet)
  • Declaration of Insurance Coverage
  • Eligibility Check + Statement of Previous Participation
  • Learning Agreement for Traineeships (Before the Mobility)
  • OLS-language test first part - send by email
  • If applicable: Confirmation of preparatory language class in host country prior to semester start

At the beginning of your internship:

As soon as the Arrival Form was received, your first installment = 70% of your ERASMUS-grant will be transferred to your bank account (as indicated in the Grant Agreement).

Immediately after the completion of your internship:

Your submission of the documents serves as your request for the payment of the remaining second installment = 30% of your ERASMUS-grant. In case your internship period has been shorter as indicated in your Grant Agreement, SRH Hochschule der populären Künste will need to recalculate the second instalment according to the ERASMUS-regulations.

Please hand in the following documents:

  • Learning agreement - after the mobility
  • EU-Survey - send by email
  • OLS-language test second - send by email

When and how long can I study abroad?

Every student can apply for up to twelve months of ERASMUS-funding within a study cyle. Thus, you could get funding for a couple of months each of studying and interning within Europe as a Bachelor and as a Master student.

In which semester you can study abroad largely depends on your study programme at SRH.

For Bachelor students:

  • no earlier than the third semester, we recommend semesters 3, 4, or 5. Some students go on an ERASMUS exchange to do research for their Bachelor during their 6. semester.
  • mandatory international semester: students following the International Experience Track have a fixed mobility window either in your 6. semester if you start in winter semester or in your 3. semester if you start in the summer semester => you just need to choose if you want to study or intern abroad
  • voluntary international semester: you may study abroad in any semester, even additionally to an International Experience Track semester => however, it is essential that you debate in detail with your study programme director if you want the courses to be recognized at hdpk

For Master students:

  • speak with your study program director about the best timing

Before your study abroad

First of all, you decide on the university you want to study at. Then you apply for the place at the International Office at hdpk - the application documents are below. The selection committee reads all applications and selects the students who will be granted an exchange place.

If you are selected as an exchange student, we will offer the place officially to you by sending you the Grant Agreement by email. Once you accepted the place, we will nominate you at the host institution, which will get back to you about the further application process.

The next step is the ERASMUS-grant. Please collect the following documents and submitted them to Elisa Barth (elisa.barth@srh.de)at the International Office SRH University Berlin:

At the beginning of your semester(s) abroad

On your Arrival Form collect the signature from your host institution that you have arrived; usually you do that during the orientation session/week. Scan and send it to Elisa Barth, who will prepare the transfer of your first installment (70%) to your bank account (as indicated in the Grant Agreement).

Immediatly after the completion of your semester(s) abroad

Once you completed your study abroad semester, you hand in the second set of documents which serves as the request for the second installment (30%) of your ERASMUS-grant. Should your study period have changed substantially (either five days longer or shorter as indicated in your Grant Agreement), we will recalculate the second instalment according to the ERASMUS-regulations.

Please hand in the following documents:
