The Erasmus programme funding generally runs for one semester. Stays of more than two semesters are also possible.

BAföG abroadHide

All those who receive domestic BAföG are eligible. However, an application may also be worthwhile if your domestic application has been rejected. We advise you to submit your application for funding as soon as possible when applying for BAföG in a foreign country. The BAföG offices usually require a processing time of six months. The special conditions and requirements for BAföG in a foreign country can be found at AuslandsBAföG.

Depending on the country, different offices are responsible for applying to receive BAföG while living abroad. They will provide you with the necessary application forms, and you will also submit your application to them.
