Erasmus+ FAQs


Students with a residence permit in Germany must note that they cannot spend more than 6 months at a time abroad, otherwise their residence permit will expire! However, as a student of a German higher education institution, you can apply for an extension of this limit and then also study one or two semesters at a foreign higher education institution. Please inform yourself in a timely manner at the relevant office.
