Erasmus+ exchange students must show their home university's Erasmus+ coordinator 3 documents in order to obtain the Erasmus+ scholarship:

  • Learning Agreement (before arrival at the host institution and in case of changes of the document upon arrival)

All Erasmus+ forms will be provided by the Erasmus+ coordinator at your home university and must be signed by the University of Konstanz. Please pay close attention to the respective submission deadlines for each Erasmus+ form provided by your home university.


Please upload your initial Erasmus+ Learning Agreement before your arrival in Konstanz. The signed Learning Agreement will be sent back to you by email. There is no explicit deadline for the upload!

What is the Learning Agreement?

The purpose of the Learning Agreement is to provide a transparent and efficient preparation of the exchange to make sure the student receives recognition for the activites successfully completed abroad.

The Learning Agreement sets out the programme of the studies to be followed abroad and must be approved by the student, the sending and the receiving institution before the start of the exchange.
The Learning Agreement should include all the learning outcomes the student is expected to acquire during the exchange.

All three parties signing the Learning Agreement commit to comply with all the agreed arrangements, thereby insuring that the student will receive the recognition for the studies carried out abroad without any further requirements.
