How to proceed

1. The faculties select the applicants

We, the IUZ, check the completeness of your application. Then we forward the applications to the Erasmus representatives of the faculties. They decide on the allocation of the exchange places. If there are more applicants than places, a ranking is made with a waiting list.

2. You are nominated at the host university and apply there

Probably in April, we will let you know if you will receive an Erasmus place. In this case we will nominate you at the host university. You will receive a confirmation e-mail from us. The nomination is not yet an admission at the host university. You must apply there after the nomination. For application, please refer to the information you receive from the partner university. Please also visit their website and inform yourself about the application deadline, which you must of course meet.

3. You create the Online Learning Agreement

The Learning Agreement contains the courses you want to attend at the host university and have recognized. With these courses you can replace courses at TU BAF. You create the document by entering the courses in Mobility Online after the nomination. Here you find the Guidelines which help you fill in the Learning Agreement (PDF).

The Learning Agreement must be signed by yourself, the examination board of your faculty and the host university. Contact the Erasmus officer of your faculty first (except Faculty 3) before sending the Learning Agreement to the examination board. The officer will check it first.

The Online Learning Agreement will be sent to the partner university through Mobility Online.

4. You attend our information event

In the course of the summer semester we invite you to a mandatory information event. We will inform you about required documents, deadlines, payment modalities etc.

5. You use the language support

After the nomination you will receive an invitation from the EU for a mandatory online language test. This serves to check your language skills yourself. You can then take an online language course if you wish. This can also be in the national language and not the language of instruction - a good chance to prepare yourself linguistically for the host country.

If you do not take a language test, you will not receive any financial support. The only exception to the language test are students whose language of instruction is their native language.

ATTENTION: Language tests for the academic year 2022/23 are expected to be available from beginning of August. We will inform Erasmus participants.

6. You sign the Grant Agreement and receive instalment payments

Once you have completed the Learning Agreement, the application to the host university and the language test, you will conclude a Grant Agreement with us. This agreement contains the exact amount of the grant. We pay this in two (one semester abroad) or three (two semesters abroad) instalments. You will receive the first instalment at the beginning of your stay. The last instalment you will receive after your stay, it is calculated to the day (30 days = 1 month). In order to receive the final instalment please submit the Letter of Confirmation and participate in an EU Online Survey to which you receive an automated invitation by email.

7. When your stay changes or comes to an end – documents during and after the mobility

Once you arrive at your host university, you may need or want to change your course schedule. Maybe you enjoy your time abroad so much that you want to stay longer and extend your studies or add an internship. In these cases, please let us know in good time and submit the following documents. And even when your stay abroad comes to an end, you are required to hand in certain documents to us:

During the mobility

  • Arrival Confirmation: confirms your arrival in the host country; use the template of the host university or the template of TU BAF; upload the document in Mobility Online or send it by mail to: outgoingsatiuz [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de
  • Learning Agreement Part 2: to be completed within 5 weeks if your courses change; change the courses directly in Mobility Online, create a new Learning Agreement and get it signed 
  • Extension of Stay: if you want to extend your stay (study or internship), please contact us at least one month before the original end of your stay: outgoingsatiuz [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de

The final rate can only be paid after submitting all documents (except proof of recognition - can be handed in later)!

  • Letter of Confirmation of Study Period: confirms the entire stay; use the template of the host university or the template of TU BAF; if possible, hand in the original document
  • Transcript of Records: certifies the credits acquired abroad; will be sent by the partner university; send the document by mail to: outgoingsatiuz [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de; submit it, together with the application for credit recognition and transfer (Antrag auf Anerkennung), to the Examination Board
