Erasmus+ International Dimension - Student Mobility for Studies

Financial support for Erasmus stays was previously only available for European universities. The new generation of the Erasmus+ program includes an “International Dimension” which allows TUM also to grant some incoming students.

However it is not possible to apply for these grants. The International Offices of the participating partner universitites organize the application and selection processes independently.

  • Australia: University of Sydney

Financial support

The following types of funding are available for stays abroad:

  • Duration: 3-12 months
  • Individual support: €800/month (from project 2018 on: 850,-€)
  • Travel cost support varies by country (Russia, Tunisia: 275,- €; Israel: 360,- €; Ghana, India: 820,- €; Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan, South Africa, Vietnam: 1.100,-€, from project 2018 on 1.500,-€).
