Extension of your stay
It is possible to extend a stay abroad by one semester. To do this you must get the permission from us and the consent of the partner university. At some universities, e.g. Bilgi University in Turkey or for universities in Canada, Australia and the USA this is generally not possible.
If you the Erasmus+ Mobility Grant can be paid also for the second semester in case you extent your stay abroad, must be specially examined by us. Unfortunately, in most cases this isn’t possible.
In the Erasmus+ program an extension of a stay abroad from the winter term into the summer term is easier to do than from the summer term into the winter term. This is only an option in exceptional cases and must be specially examined by the Department for International Affairs. With many of our non-EU partnerships, extensions are possible regardless of the semester (e.g. Russia or Latin America).
