Steps after admission to Erasmus+

Follow the schedule for the process after the placement confirmation. Once you have been admitted to the Erasmus+ Programme in Biology through the faculty, we will also inform you about the next steps via e-mail.

0. Read notes on the procedure - at any time

In addition to the information given here, you can find important information about the procedure and the necessary documents for the entire Erasmus+ stay in the Checklist of Göttingen International and the Erasmus+ Charter for Students. For a smooth process you have to submit the required documents to us as well as to Göttingen International in time.

1. Submit nomination in Göttingen - until 10.03.

You have to be registered for the respective exchange at Göttingen International. For this purpose, you will receive a nomination template via email, which must be signed by you. Make sure you have access to internet and your email address during this time. Send us a scanned version via e-mail by 10.03. In addition, a printed version (mailbox or post) must be handed in to the study office as soon as possible. This is at the same time the binding commitment on your part that you accept the exchange place.

2. Registration at the partner university - March 15 to April 30

Once we have received your nomination, we can register you at the partner university. Only then you are an Erasmus exchange student nominated by us at the partner university. We have to follow the deadlines of the respective partner university.

3. Apply at partner university - until the respective deadline

After being nominated at the partner university, you will receive a request from us and, if applicable, also from the partner university to apply at the partner university. If you are not contacted directly by the partner university, please check the respective websites of the partner university for information on application modalities and deadlines. Helpful links can be found under "How to apply".

4. Course selection at the partner university - learning agreement - by 01.05.

After you have applied to the host university, plan your courses/modules and create the Learning Agreement by May 1. Plan with 30 ECTS per semester and keep in mind that only modules of the (biological) partner faculty of your host university may be taken. We use the Online Learning Agreement (OLA). You will receive instructions on how to do this from us via e-mail - including access to the portal. Save the Online Learning Agreement, electronically signed by all three parties, as a PDF document and submit it to Göttingen International (upload in MoveON).

5. GI Information Session - June

To sign the so-called Grant Agreement, Göttingen International will hold a mandatory information event. You will be invited to this via email. At this time, the signed OLA must be uploaded in the portal. You will receive further instructions on how to successfully complete the formalities here.

6. Submit documents - up to four weeks after end of stay

In addition to the documents you need to upload in MoveON (see Checklist of Göttingen International), we ask you to send us the following documents via email:

  • Experience report (anonymized, what would you like to share with future exchange students, will be published on the website)
  • Current certificate of enrollment of winter term or certificate of study time of the University of Göttingen (generated via the SB function in Stud.IP)
  • Transcript of Records of the host university

Only when we and Göttingen International have received all documents, the Erasmus+ stay is considered completed. Inform us and Göttingen International immediately in case of unavoidable delays!
