The financial support from the Erasmus+ mobility programme for training purposes is based on the various living costs in the target countries ("programme countries"). Uniform daily rates are applicable for the support by German universities.

Since the academic year 2018/19, the following fixed daily rates are applicable in Germany for three country groups:

  • Group 1: €180 per day for Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Norway, Great Britain, Sweden, UK, Bosnia, Serbia

  • Group 3: €140 per day for Bulgaria, Macedonia, Estonia, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary

These daily rates are in addition to travel costs, which are based on the actual distances between the mobility-related departure and destination points, and determined uniformly across Europe using a calculation tool.

The following amounts are reimbursed per stay, based on the respective distance:

  • 0 km to 99 km: €20
  • 100 km to 499 km: €180
  • 500 km to 1,999 km: €275
