Study abroad for students with disabilities / students with children
Erasmus+ provides special funding to persons with special needs so that they too have the opportunity to study abroad. Eligible candidates include disabled students and those who have children. Special funding is awarded in addition to the regular Erasmus grants for study abroad.
For more information, visit the website of the DAAD.
Erasmus funding for students with impairments (without a certificate of disability)
Health impairments, which justify an increase in the standard Erasmus mobility funding to help offset additional costs abroad, include:
Disabilities and/or chronic illnesses which require the host university to ensure the availability of specific aids and assistance. Please submit a report from a medical specialist which provides a sound assessment of your situation and justifies an increase in the standard mobility funding to the highest level accorded to the respective country group - additional 200 € per month.
The medical report should include a statement on the type of impairment, a description of the symptoms, as well as information on the history and prognosis of the student's impairment/illness. It should clearly state what conditions need to be met at the host university to ensure that the student can successfully complete a period of study abroad. Please note that the content of the report and the described symptoms and impairments therein should be understandable to the medical layperson.
Our info brochure "Studieren im Ausland" provides an overview on all matters related to study abroad. You will find extensive information about the exchange timeline, necessary formalities and recognition of academic achievement upon your return to Münster.

Multiple funding opportunities
Students can participate multiple times in the Erasmus programme. For each academic phase (BA – MA – PhD), students may apply for a 12-month mobility grant (studying and/or traineeships). This corresponds to a total of 36 months of funding (3 x 12 mos.).
Students whose degree programmes are not divided into bachelor's and master's programmes (e.g. state examinations – PhD) can likewise take full advantage of the multiple funding measures offered through Erasmus+. In such cases, students are allotted 24 months of mobility funding (studying and/or traineeships) until the end of the first qualification phase. This corresponds to 36 months of funding (24 mos. plus 12 mos.).
