Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Placements

Erasmus+ Placements

You are are part way through your studies, and now you are seized by wanderlust? A change of scenery might do you good, but you wouldn’t want to stop working on your career? The LEONARDO OFFICE SAXONY assists students with grants for both compulsory and individual placements abroad, which range between €400 and €520 per month depending on your host country.

Don't think twice, it’s worth it!

Erasmus+ assists successful applicants with grants for placements in EU countries, their respective overseas territories, and in Iceland, Liechtenstein, FYROM, Norway and Turkey. A maximum of 12 months within a study cycle can be used for periods of study and/or placements abroad (24 months for Diplom and other one-cycle degree courses). However, every placement must have a minimum duration of two months (60 days). Please note that you can receive grants for several placements during a study cycle (Bachelor, Master, Diplom etc).

The Leonardo Office Saxony maintains an extensive network of contacts to companies, research institutes, universities, schools, hospitals, social and governmental institutions, culture and art organizations, and associations and clubs, from which you can choose if you have not found a placement on your own yet.


Quality assurance

The Leonardo Office Saxony will conclude an ERASMUS grant agreement with all parties involved, and issue a qualified certificate to you at the end of your placement.


When should I apply?

The Leonardo Office Saxony recommends that applications be submitted six months before the beginning of your placement, but may accept applications filed less than three months prior in justified cases.
