ERASMUS study visits
Other procedures in the ERASMUS+ Programme
After being nominated by the Palucca University of Dance Dresden for an ERASMUS study visit, you must apply to your guest university of choice. Please note the application deadlines and the required application documents which differ between universities. Late or incomplete applications may not be considered.
The guest university will check the suitability of the candidates for their programme of study. Nomination by the Palucca University is therefore no guarantee of approval by the guest university. The application also includes the learning agreement for your ERASMUS stay, the Learning Agreement for Studies.
Following approval by the partner university and the signing of the Learning Agreement, you will receive the grant agreement from the Palucca University, which lists your rights and responsibilities as a participant in the ERASMUS+ programme and the exact amount and payment methods of the stipend.
All participants in the Erasmus programmes are obligated to take an online language test in their language of study at the guest university prior to their stay. Depending on the test result, there is the possibly of participating in an online language course in order to improve their language ability. Following the end of the stay, a second language test must be taken to evaluate the student’s improvement in their foreign language.
Following the end of the ERASMUS study visit, all participants are obligated to compile a report on the Mobility Tool Plus and submit this together with corresponding proof of their completed ERASMUS study (including proof of duration of stay).
Recognition of Academic Performance/ ECTS
The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) allows for the recognition of studies completed abroad. Academic and examination performances are assessed by the allocation of credits according to a uniform Europe-wide system. Together with the leader of the study programme responsible at the Palucca University and the technical coordinator of your guest university, you develop a study plan (Learning Agreement for Studies) prior to your visit abroad, which specifies the required lectures and the number of credits you are required to achieve.
Recognition of academic performance by means of ECTS does not occur automatically however. For later recognition of your academic performance abroad, you should therefore note the following:
Following your return, please visit the department for studies, examinations and academic issues in order to apply for recognition of your studies abroad. For this purpose, please provide a relevant application to the board examiners and attach the transcript of records from your guest university. If possible, please also submit detailed course descriptions to the board of examiners to serve as proof of the content of the lectures you have attended.
