Erasmus Stay at LMU – Students with Special Needs

To ensure that students with special needs can take full advantage of the European mobility arrangements, the Erasmus programme pays particular attention to guidance, reception, physical accessibility, pedagogical and technical support services, and, especially, financing of the extra costs. Your Erasmus grant is higher than the normal study grant to offset the specific difficulties with which you are faced (such as physical access and the organization of your studies).

How to apply

  • Ask the Erasmus coordinator of your home university about the application procedure in your home country (application deadline, where you can obtain the application form, where to submit your application form etc.
  • Your home university or National Agency will assess your application and will decide on the additional amount you may receive.

Where to obtain further information?

  • To find out information on the sort of facilities available at LMU before going abroad, please get into direct contact with Monique Esnouf -
  • Useful information can be found on the website, which currently covers five countries.
  • You should also ask your National Agency to provide you with more information on specific issues that are of concern to you when planning your study period abroad.
  • The "European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education" provides a network of contact persons, appointed by the Ministries in each of the EU/EEA countries, who are available to answer questions and give advice on issues concerning special equipment and facilities for disabled students.

In general, your home university should ensure that the necessary arrangements are made.
