Funding Opportunities

For your stay abroad, you should check your financing options at an early stage. In addition to the cost of living, there may be tuition fees, travelling expenses and insurance. Working while studying is not always possible in every country. In many countries, students do not have a work permit.

To make it easier to finance your stay abroad (whether studying or doing an internship), there are a variety of funding opportunities. Please be aware of and observe potential application deadlines.


The Erasmus+ programme is an EU funding programme for studying abroad. Without too many formalities and tuition fees, and with an Erasmus scholarship, it is possible to study abroad depending on the existing university partnerships in the respective degree programme.
