Educational Institutions’ guide to Erasmus+ extra support for students with accompanying children

Target group

The target group for the extra support is students enrolled at a Danish Higher education institution, who are accompanied by their child/children during their overseas exchange. The extra support can be granted in cases of overseas traineeships or studies in an Erasmus+ Programme country (KA103). It is a prerequisite that the applicant is accompanied by his/her child/children in the overseas exchange. The extra support is given per student per month regardless of the number of children, meaning that the support does not increase if the student has more than one accompanying child. If two students, who have a child together, are going on an Erasmus+ exchange at the same time, both parents can apply for and receive the support. In this case, both must submit an application and attach documentation with each application.

Support amount

The financial support amounts to 200 euros per month throughout the duration of the exchange. If the extra support is granted to a student carrying out a traineeship, the additional 100 euro top-up grant for traineeships will no longer apply in this case, as only one top-up can be granted.

Case processesing

Case processing is handled by the Higher Education institution. No approval needs to be obtained from or submitted to the Board for Research and Education. The institution itself determines the procedure for application and case processing. It is important that the case documents are filed (in case of documentary checks). An application form has been prepared, however it is not mandatory to use the form.

Documentation requirements

The student must provide the following documentation (copy) to receive the extra support: Pregnancy record, birth certificate or paternity declaration.

Grant

The funds must be taken from the grant that has already been allocated for Study and Internship under KA103. No extra or separate funding is granted to finance the support.

Information about the extra financial support

Erasmus+ offers special financial support for students, who are accompanied by their child/children during their overseas studies or traineeship. The extra support amounts to 200 euro per month. If the extra support is granted a student in a traineeship, the additional 100 euro top-up grant for traineeships will no longer apply in this case, as only one top-up can be granted. Documentation of the eligibility for the support such as a copy of the child/children’s birth certificate(s), the pregnancy record or the paternity declaration, must be attached to the application. If a couple with children are going on an Erasmus+ exchange at the same time (both have to be Erasmus + students), both can apply for and receive the extra support. In this case, one application must be submitted per. student and documentation must be attached to both applications.
