Erasmus and Corona

The pandemic affects the possibilities of travelling and studying abroad. This is why Erasmus students can now follow part or all of their courses online. Financial support is paid only if you actually travel abroad.

The NA DAAD (National Agency for EU-University Cooperation in the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD) has compiled a list of frequently asked questions from (sponsored) students.

Here you can look for the mobility status of European universities during the pandemic.
