ERASMUS is the financial aid programme of the European Union for transnational cooperation in the area of education. The goal of the ERASMUS programme is to support the development of the European university education and the mobility of students and lecturers.
Palucca University of Dance Dresden has been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) for the period 2014/2015 - 2020/2021 by the European Commission, which is a prerequisite for higher education institutions to participate in the Erasmus+programme.
More information about this EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport can be found here.
The European Commission in conjunction with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) provide an Erasmus grant for participating students (or graduates) to help with the cost of living abroad. The Erasmus grant will not cover all of your costs of being abroad, it is intended as a contribution towards your living costs.
Grant Rates are set annually by the sending institution each year and the rates for 2015/2016 have not yet been announced. The rate you receive will be based on a number of criteria including:
• The duration of your stay abroad
• Your destination country
• If you are doing a study or a work placement
Additional funding (special needs support) is available for students with disabilities wishing to undertake a placement. The additional funding is to support additional costs incurred in taking a placement abroad that cannot be recovered from other sources. The grant covers actual costs. If you believe you would be eligible for this funding, please contact the Erasmus-coordinator.
The grant is usually paid in two instalments, at least 70% after a certificate of arrival has been sent to the Erasmus Co-ordinator and the remainder at the end of the period abroad after the student (or graduate) has submitted their final report.
Under the scheme students have 2 options::
Additionally recent higher education graduates may participate in
Internships, which directly follow an ERASMUS study abroad, can qualify for financial aid as part of an ERASMUS study programme.

The ERASMUS Programme also subsidises international internships within Europe. In addition to the 12 month financial aid for ERASMUS studies, up to 12 months financial aid can be granted for ERASMUS internships.
Terms and conditions for the aid include (among others):
In order for students to receive aid from the ERASMUS Programme, the following criteria must be met:
Recent higher education graduates:
The Rector’s Office/ERASMUS Coordinator processes the organisation of and application for the ERASMUS exchange.
Applications must be filed with the employees of the Rector’s Office/Erasmus Coordinator by the end of the preceding Winter Semester. Applications filed later can only be allotted if remaining scholarship funds are still available.
Following a successful bid to apply for admission at a partner university (and after requests are made to relevant providers for student accommodation, language courses, etc. - students may need a letter of acceptance from the partner university to make such requests), the partner university will once more evaluate students` suitability for admission to their respective study programs. The nomination made by Palucca University therefore offers no guaranteed admission to the partner university.
BAföG beneficiaries should apply for foreign financial aid at the appropriate agency (depending on the target country) on time (at least 6 months before the start of your stay abroad). Since the BAföG amendment from 2001 and the corresponding adjustments to the administrative provisions, which were also published in writing in December 2001, EU grants need not be deducted from BAföG.
