Application (all forms are at the bottom of this page in "Downloads")
1. Grant Agreement
Fill your address and account number on page 1, the Duration of your Semester abroad on page 2, then sign on page 3 and add a copy of the Learning Agreement (signed by you, by your Partner School and by your departmental coordinator). This is your application which you have to send to the Erasmus coordinator Iris Ulbrich.
2. Learning Agreement (consists of 3 parts!)
This is an essential part of your Erasmus+ mobility and a guarantee for the recognition of your ECTS. The Learning Agreement is only valid with the signatures from yourself, your Partner School and your departmental coordinator. On page 1 you have to fill the data of your Partner School, the data of SRH Hochschule Heidelberg is pre-filled. On page 3 the Learning Agreement has to be signed by all three parties!
The Learning Agreement consists of the following 3 parts:
a) Part before mobility- add a signed copy of it to your Grant Agreement for the application
Table A: Your course selection (discuss it with you departmental coordinator) Table B: The courses at SRH Hochschule Heidelberg which are replaced by the courses at your Partner School. The courses do not have to be recognised 1:1, there is flexibility with a "mobility window" for elective courses of 20 - 30 ECTS. The number of ECTS in Table A and B have to be identical, and is usually 30 ECTS per semester. If some courses are only partially recognised they have to be marked by * and note this in table A. The fully filled and signed "Learning Agreement before the mobility" is a requirement to get the 1st rate of 70 % of your Erasmus+ funding.
b) Part "during mobility" - Changes to the original Learning Agreement.
If you have to change courses after your arrival this part has to be filled, signed and sent to the Erasmus coordinator within 1 month after your arrival. Discuss the changes with your departmental coordinator beforehand.
c) Part "after mobility". This section of the form has to be filled on the last day of exchange with at least the exact duration of your Semester abroad. It has to be signed and stamped by the International Office of your Partner School. The Transcript of Records can be added in Table C on this form or it can be sent separately later.
Important note: Learning Agreements can only be sent as pdf-form, other formats (jpg, png, gif etc.) or photos are not accepted!
OLS is a compulsary part of the Erasmus+ program and supports students and interns in improving their foreign language competence.
OLS language test: If you are not a native Speaker you have to pass 2 OLS online language tests in the language of your studies, one before and one after your mobility. The course can be passed in Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, German, Greek, English, Spanish, Finnish, French, Croatian, Hungarian, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak and Swedish. Please note that the result of this test has no influence on your Erasmus+ funding!
OLS language course: In addition to the test all participants with a language Level from A1 to B1 are automatically invited to this online language course to improve it. The participation is voluntary. Also students with a Level higher than B1 can take part on demand (ask the Erasmus coordinator).
The OLS Systems works electronically: All students get the link to the test or the course by email after the Erasmus+ application.
