How to apply
Getting your documents ready

Before your guest lectureship (start at least 6 weeks beforehand!)

  1. Contact your chosen Erasmus+ partner university and establish whether and when your guest lectureship may be possible.
  2. Tell the International Office of SRH University Heidelberg about your plans
  3. Seek approval of your planned journey from the President’s Office and your line manager (see guidelines for travel on official business). However, you must organise the actual trip (flight, accommodation, etc.) yourself without funding from Reisebüro Frentzen, because the Erasmus+ funding will be transferred to your private account. If you prefer to book through Reisebüro Frentzen, please notify the Erasmus+ Coordinator, Iris Ulbrich, in which case the fixed travel allowance will remain with SRH University Heidelberg.
  4. Submit the following documents to the Erasmus+ University Coordinator Iris Ulbrich at least 4 weeks before your planned departure. The Erasmus+ funding will then be transferred within around 2 weeks
    • Erasmus+ mobility agreement teaching containing your signature and a signature from the host university; the Erasmus+ Coordinator, Iris Ulbrich, is responsible for signing this agreement at SRH University Heidelberg.
    • Erasmus Grant Agreement (grant agreement containing your data)
    • Approval from the President’s Office and your dean or line manager

During your guest lectureship

  • On the last day of your lectureship, ask someone at the host university to sign the Confirmation Letter Teaching Mobility.

After your guest lectureship

  • Submit the Confirmation letter teaching mobility to our Erasmus+ Coordinator Iris Ulbrich.
  • Complete the EU Survey (final report) as soon as you receive the request by email.

Please note: Failure to complete the above steps will result in having to return the entire Erasmus grant!
