Advanced training with Erasmus+

Erasmus+ STT-Mobilities

Every year, the University of Potsdam sends around 350 students and lecturers to European partner universities as part of Erasmus+. At the moment, the University of Potsdam even occupies fifth place in the teaching staff mobility. But Erasmus+ offers more!

The technical and administrative staff (central and decentralized) can also benefit from the program. The program offers the opportunity to travel to partners to exchange experiences, to attend internships or to gain further education.

For continuing education and training purposes, university staff may be employed at a German university to be promoted to a receiving institution participating in the "Erasmus+" program, or to any other institution located in another programming country that is active in the labor market or in education, training or youth. This activity promotes the professional development of higher education staff through training abroad (except for conferences) and through visits to a partner university or equivalent facilities abroad.

The minimum length of stay at the receiving institution should not be less than two working days and should not exceed 60 days.

Online Application | Deadline: 30 June 2019

Please note the following hints.

Alternate applicants may be considered depending upon the availability of funds.

Step by Step


You can apply exclusively online until 30 June 2019. You will receive the permit by e-mail until 15 July 2019 with the funding period and a template for the Mobility Agreement.

Mobility preparation

You send the completed and signed Mobility Agreement (as a scan) to the partner university for signature. Afterwards, you forward the signed version to the International Office at the latest 8 weeks prior to the mobility.

You will then receive the Grant Agreement, signed and returned to the International Office before commencing any mobility.

Make a business travel application (financial audit: Martin Müller of the International Office). You may apply for a anticipated payment 30 days before the start of the mobility.

If you are unable to do the mobility, please return the funds to the International Office so that the funds can be redistributed.

Before your return

Let confirm the length of your stay including working days by means of the Certificate of Stay. You will receive the template by e-mail together with the Grant Agreement.

After your return

You submit your travel expenses statement along with the required supporting documents along with the Certificate of Stay and the approved business travel application in the International Office. The reimbursement amount will be made after examination by the travel cost center in D3.

Later, you will receive an invitation by e-mail to complete the EU questionnaire (EU Survey), which you fill out online.
