Brexit and Erasmus+ until 31 May 2023

Despite Brexit, mobilities to the UK will still be funded until May 31, 2023 (duration of the SUPER+ 2020 project).

Since January 2021 new visa regulations are in force, for more information click here.

If you are planning an internship in the UK, the visa application process requires that you submit your entire application to us at least 3 months before the start of the internship (this does not apply to research internships).

Additionally, the following documents need to be send by e-mail.

We will assist you with your visa application. https://www.gov.uk/government-authorised-exchange.

DAAD Impact Study

The DAAD has published a study on German employers' expectations of university graduates in 2019. The study highlights the importance of experience abroad for the career success of graduates in the German labour market. This is a perfect confirmation of the importance of Erasmus internships.

There is an abridged version of the study, as well as fact sheets for students and universities.

Both are available here:
