DAAD Impact Study 2019

At the end of last year, the DAAD published a study on what German employers expect from university graduates. The study highlights the importance of experience abroad for the career success of graduates in the German labour market. This is a perfect confirmation of the importance of Erasmus internships.

There is an abridged version of the study, as well as fact sheets for students and universities.

Both are available here:

Corona und Erasmus+

We are all very concerned about the current developments and measures to protect the population worldwide and especially in Europe.

Due to the current situation, our office remains closed to the public. Please use other communication channels such as telephone, fax or e-mail.

Applications for Erasmus+ internships are still accepted.

Please inform yourself at the Federal Foreign Office (e.g. with the Safe Travel App) about current travel warnings and entry conditions. If you start your internship and stay abroad, please register in the electronic registration system of the Federal Foreign Office for Germans abroad ("Elefand").
Should you end or interrupt your Erasmus stay prematurely or not be able to start your Erasmus stay at all due to the corona pandemic, the "Force Majeure" rule will apply in justified cases.
Please keep all receipts and information and contact a.i.m. rlp.

The DAAD has compiled a preliminary list of frequently asked questions on this topic:
