Deadline for applications

The complete application documents must be submitted at least one month prior to the start of the internship. A processing time of approx. four weeks should be taken into account.

For internships in partner countries, you should also consider enough time for the visa application (if applicable).

Neither the application nor the internship periods are tied to semester periods, i. e. applications for funding can be submitted throughout the year.

Compulsory insurances

The Erasmus+ scholarship does not provide an insurance coverage. Neither the EU Commission, the National Agency DAAD nor the Agency for International Higher Education Mobility Rhineland-Palatinate are liable for damage resulting from illness, death, accident, personal injury, loss or damage to property in connection with an Erasmus+ stay abroad.

The Agency for International Higher Education Mobility Rhineland-Palatinate is obliged to ensure that the recipients of funding have adequate insurance cover. For this reason, it is necessary that you provide information on health, liability and accident insurance in the application form.

Participants should be in possession of a European health insurance card. This free card gives you access to medically necessary public health services in EU countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, under the same conditions and costs as the citizens of the respective country. Further information can be found at

For internships/internship stays, it is compulsory to have both an accident and a liability insurance for possible damages caused by the student at work.

All participants in the Erasmus+ program (including graduates) have the option of being included in the group insurance of the DAAD, which offers comprehensive insurance cover.
For further information, please contact the DAAD Insurance Office.
