Erasmus+

Applying for ERASMUS+ requires the following:

  • A bilateral agreement (ERASMUS+ Agreement) between CAMPUS 02 and the host university
  • You must be a registered, regular student at CAMPUS 02
  • You have studied at CAMPUS 02 for at least 1 year at the time of starting your studies abroad
  • The duration of study is between 3 and 12 months
  • The study is full-time
  • You can undertake multiple mobilities provided they do not exceed the maximum 12 month duration per cycle of study (BA, MA, PhD)
  • Motivation
  • Quality of submitted application documents
  • Language skills and willingness to prepare language skills
  • Grade Average

The following completed forms signed by all parties – as long as the host institution does not change its application dates – are to be submitted the latest by 1 June for the following winter semester and the latest by 1 November for the following summer semester:

  • Motivational statement
  • Application form by the host university
  • Learning-Agreement
  • Transcript of Records

Since preparing for studying abroad takes considerable time and applying at the host university as well as your home university is required, we recommend that you start planning a year ahead.

Nomination: If you have been selected by your home institution for ERASMUS+, you are nominated by the International Office in the ERASMUS+ Database. As soon as you receive an automatic nomination confirmation with a registering code. By registering you accept the electronic organisation of the study abroad as well as the electronic processing of your data. The administrative organisation and the study grant payment are taken care of by the Regional OeAD Office Graz – ERASMUS Office.

Grant: Once the ERASMUS Office in Graz has checked the nomination data, you will receive an email of approval. The “contract” (= agreement with the OeAD GmbH) will be available on the Students Online portal from 20 days before the beginning of your mobility. The original version of the contract must be signed (a scan will not be accepted) and submitted in duplicate to the ERASMUS Office in Graz (see the mobility leaflet). Once the signed contract has been submitted, you are payed 80 % of the grant and after the mobility and having submitted all required documents within the specified time frame, you will receive the remaining rate.

You are expected to take part in course units amounting to 30 ECTS credits per semester. The reclaim limit for the mobility grant is 3 ECTS credits per month.

Student Financial Aid: It is possible to continue benefitting from student financial aid while studying abroad. If you wish to continue drawing these benefits in addition to the ERASMUS+ grant during your study placement, you must apply for an extension at the responsible study grant authority. In case the aid rate is lower than the National Agency’s ERASMUS+ grant, you will receive financial compensation after your ERASMUS+ study placement.

Tuition Fees: During your ERASMUS+ study placement, the host institution is not allowed to collect tuition fees. Small expenses collected by the host institution for certain services (e.g. insurance, National Union of Students’ fees) and tuition materials (e.g. photo copies, laboratory equipment, etc.) are not included in the tuition fee. These extra fees should not exceed the ones collected from local students. Please bear in mind that you are obliged to continue paying tuition fees collected by your home institution during your time abroad.

Changes: Before starting the ERASMUS+ study placement, you are obliged to enter into a Learning Agreement with your home and host institution, which must be signed by all three parties. If you want to make any changes, you must make them at the host institution within the first month after starting your study placement. Again, these changes must be signed by you, the home as well as host institution.

Extensions: It is possible to extend your study placement as long as you apply for extension by the latest one month before the end of the placement and if your home institution approves. If the extension does not exceed the originally defined duration of the study placement and the total time abroad does not exceed 12 months. The Learning Agreement needs to be renewed and signed by all parties.

If your language of instruction is Danish, English, French, Greek, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish or Czech, you are obliged to undertake a language assessment before starting the mobility programme and shortly before completing it. You are excluded from this rule, if your mother language is one of the above. If you are a non-native speaker of any of these languages and have completed the assessment, you can choose to take an online language course in the same language. This offer is available to you during the entire study placement.

(If you can prove that your skills in one of the languages above are between level B2 and C2, you have the opportunity to take an online language course in the host institution’s language of instruction or host country’s official language.)

The following documents must be submitted after your study placement and within the specified time frames:

 

OeAD Erasmus Office Graz within 4 weeks after the end of the study placement:

  • Original confirmation of study placement (see the OeAD contract)
  • Student Report in the ERASMUS+ Database

Once you have submitted all documents, you will receive the remaining 20 % of the ERASMUS+ grant.

There are many ways of finding a traineeship:

  • Activate your own personal Network!

Do you have family, friends or acquaintances abroad? Do you know anyone who has family, friends or acquaintances abroad? Do you know anyone in an Austrian firm with a subsidiary, representative office or branch abroad?

It’s true when they say that talking brings people together! Use your contacts – perhaps unexpected leads will come to light!

  • Find out where CAMPUS 02 fellow students have completed traineeships in the past!

The first seven CAMPUS 02 students to complete a foreign traineeship did so in the academic year 2004/05 – in Australia, Canada, Germany, South Africa and Switzerland. More than 130 Financial Accounting & Management Accounting and International Marketing & Sales Management students have followed in the footsteps of those seven “pioneers” by completing their traineeship with various companies abroad. Anyone interested in receiving a list of all companies who have hosted CAMPUS 02 students during traineeships abroad are invited to contact their degree programme coordinator.

  • Find out more about organisations that arrange traineeships!

The business of arranging foreign traineeships has boomed in recent years. In addition to this service, many organisations also offer students help with obtaining visas, searching for accommodation, organising language courses and airport collection services, to name but a few. However, all of these services are subject to a (sometimes considerable) fee. You are advised to reflect carefully whether you want to take on these fees and to find out relevant information well in advance.

AIESEC and IAESTE provide a cost-effective traineeship arrangement service. Both are exclusively run by students on a voluntary basis, and whilst no fee is strictly charged for arranging traineeships, all donations are gratefully received.

  • Look for advertised traineeships on traineeship exchange internet sites!

Click here to view some links advertising international traineeships. Since many of these websites focus on specific geographic locations and content, e.g. erasmusintern.org, you should have a thought about how to refine and filter your criteria before embarking on your search.

  • Look for a company by yourself in the country of your choice!

Another option is for you to look for a company in a country of your choice and send them an unsolicited application. Don’t forget that your potential traineeship company will possibly gain its only – and in every case its first – impression of you from your application, which is why you should take the time to prepare the documentation properly. Think carefully about what you could bring to the firm. Proofread your application and get feedback from other People.

The Austrian Chamber of Commerce – Foreign Trade (AWO) has approved new grants for further training and traineeships abroad under the umbrella of its “Go-International” initiative. Within the framework of the “competitiveness through training” programme, Austrian companies can send current and future employees (and trainees) abroad and apply for direct grants.

This grant programme is aimed at students in our technical degree programmes who want to do research for their Bachelor’s and Master’s thesis at a U.S. higher education institution.

Two of our Automation Technology graduates who had successfully applied for this programme created the FH C02_MPS-Research-Guide_2017 (in German language) as a source of help for CAMPUS 02 students interested in the grant programme.
