The programme offers the following services to students:
- transfer of credits from the partner university

Financing – Erasmus+ as Study Grant
Health, Accident and Personal Liability Insurances
Participating in the Erasmus+ programme does not include any insurance coverage in the host country. We therefore recommend that you check whether your insurances are also valid abroad.
DAAD offers insurance for students abroad; the costs must be covered by the students. You can find further information on the group insurance of DAAD here.
