Notes on general safety precautions

Covid 19 – Current information and advice

Due to the Corona pandemic and the still ongoing dynamic situation, regulations at host countries and/or host universities may be changed and adjusted to new developments at any time. The International Office is in regular contact with the partner institutions and will inform you immediately about any changes. During the study abroad, the rules and regulations of the partner universities and host countries must be followed.

In principle, there are currently no travel restrictions or travel bans for students who receive Erasmus+ or PROMOS funding - not even for countries and regions with current Corona travel warnings issued by the German Foreign Office. Nevertheless, in accordance with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) the Leuphana University advises against travel into Corona risk areas and to countries and regions with Corona travel warnings issued by the German Foreign Office. Travel to countries with an existing travel warning is always carried out at the participants' own responsibility.

Because student health and safety have top priority for Leuphana University, we strongly recommend

  • to regularly check the current situation in your host country on the websites of the German Foreign Office and to register on the crisis precaution list.
  • Erasmus students: to regularly check the DAAD website (in German only) for further measures of the European Commission related to Erasmus+ and COVID-19. See also FAQ Coronavirus and Erasmus+. You can also find up-to-date information on the pages of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control.
  • to consider starting your mobility virtually and to realise physical mobility at a later stage - we will be happy to advise you
  • to contact us at any time if you would like to postpone your study abroad to the summer term 2022 - which is possible in most cases. In the case of Corona-related cancellations of mobility, even at short notice, no processing fee will be charged.

Please contact us before and during the mobility if you have any questions or difficulties.

Notes on overlapping semester times

Nomination and Application at the Host University

Nomination: The International Office (IO) nominates all students with an exchange place at the respective partner universities. As a rule, the host universities contact the nominated students directly or via our office and inform them about the application procedure.

Application: You are responsible for submitting your application to the host university in due time. If possible, we have included information on the application procedure and deadlines at the host universities in the fact sheets at https://leuphana.moveon4.de/publisher/1/deu. (Leuphana Erasmus code: D LUNEBUR01)

In most cases, the application includes

  1. Application Form for Exchange Students
    The form is often available on the host university's website (online application or download). Many universities also send the forms directly to the nominated students or to our office; in the latter case we will forward the information to you.
    If you need a Letter of Nomination please contact Sandra Schnell, sandra.schnell@leuphana.de.
    If the application form has to be signed by the IO, please send the completed and signed application form (pdf) to schnell@uni.leuphana.de. We will return the signed document to you as soon as possible.
    If the host university only accepts applications submitted via our office, please send your complete application package (pdf) within the deadline to schnell@uni.leuphana.de. We will forward your application package to your host university.
    If you need original signatures from us, because you have to send the application by mail, please mail us the application documents for signature appr. 2 weeks before the deadline. We will mail them back to you as soon as possible.
     
  2. Transcript of Records
    If you need a current transcript in English:
    At www.leuphana.de/college/studium/pruefungen.html you will find the form "Notenbescheinigungen per E-Mail" under „Informationen und Formulare“. Please send the completed form by mail to the Student Service Office and include a copy of your identity card. In addition, please write an e-mail to the Student Service Office and request the transcript by e-mail.
     
  3. Learning Agreement
    Some partner universities require a preliminary Learning Agreement with the application documents, often without information on recognition at the home university. Please contact the responsible persons for academic recognition (lists available under „Recognition/Learning Agreement“ on this page) and ask them to check if the courses/modules you wish to attend can be transfered towards your degree at Leuphana University. Then complete the routing slip „Laufzettel“ (Erasmus only) and have it signed by the responsible persons or fill in their names and add the respective e-mail correspondence. Then complete the Preliminary Learning Agreement (see „Recognition/Learning Agreement“ on this page).
    Please submit the Preliminary Learning Agreement to the host university within the deadline. Probably at the beginning of June, Erasmus students will also prepare the „Learning Agreement Before the Mobility“ for Leuphana University. Detailed instructions are already available with the corresponding forms (routing slip/learning agreement) and will be updated again by June. If you need the LA before then and have any questions regarding the document, please contact Stefanie Bahnsen at la.outgoing@leuphana.de.
     
  4. Proof of Sufficient Language Skills
    If the host university requires a proof of sufficient language skills:
    Most partner universities accept the language certificates issued by the Language Center, including OOPT (Oxford Online Placement Test), which have been part of your application for the exchange place. A copy of the certificate is therefore sufficient in most cases. 2nd round applicants who have not yet taken a language test at the Language Center due to the closure of the university, please contact the following lecturers of the language centre
    - for English: Lynette Kirschner
    - for Spanish: Maria del Carmen Suñén Bernal
    - for Frech, Italian and Portuguese: Christophe Hohwald.

Please send a copy of the application documents to outgoing@leuphana.de. In case of an online application you can alternatively submit a Letter of Acceptance.

Notification of a study abroad

You remain enrolled at Leuphana University of Lüneburg while on a study abroad, but will be exempt from paying the student services fees for the period abroad. A notification of a study abroad has to be submitted to the Student Services via the International Office. Students with double majors are requested to submit one notification per major. Please send the carefully completed form to outgoing@uni.leuphana.de.

Accommodation Service

The Leuphana Accommodation Service arranges contact between private landlords or students of Leuphana University and incoming exchange students.

If you would like to rent out your furnished room in Lüneburg for a semester or two please send an email to tanja.schaefer@leuphana.de.

Grant Agreement and Student Charter

In the academic year 2022/23 Erasmus outgoings will be funded from 3 different Erasmus+ projects. Depending on the duration of the project, the period of stay and the destination country, we will assign you to a project and send you the scholarship agreement by email. You can find the assignment to the projects in the downloads.

First, read the information on the scholarship agreement for your project (Appendix V) and follow the sample agreement. Then carefully and completely fill in the document electronically. Submit the original hand-signed document to the International Office. If you are applying for top-ups, please submit the sworn statements with original signatures and other supporting documents, if applicable, with the scholarship agreement. Top-ups for lesser opportunities cannot be combined.

Deadlines for submission: will be communicated by email

Compulsory language tests - Online Language Support (OLS)

All students taking part in an Erasmus+ mobility must take an online language test (OLS) in the language of instruction before the mobility period (exception: native speakers). This language test is compulsory and the payment of the Erasmus+ grant is linked to it.

Access is via the EU Academy platform (expected to be available from the beginning of August 2022). Erasmus+ funding recipients have various options on the platform: they can carry out so-called "self-assessments" to assess their language skills and participate in language courses in as many languages as they wish.

You will receive access by e-mail. The test must be taken within 4 weeks of receiving access.

Academic Recognition / Erasmus+ Online Learning Agreement – First version / Erasmus+ Learning Agreement Before the Mobility

Outgoing students starting from winter semester 2022/23 onwards create their Online Learning Agreement (OLA) and exclusively(!) in the portal for stays abroad, in which you have already made your application for the exchange. As soon as the OLA function is available to you in the portal, you will receive an automatic notification via the OLA system and can start creating the OLA.
Please note: Students whose OLA function does not appear in the portal shall contact Stefanie Bahnsen: la.outgoing@leuphana.de.

The Online Learning Agreement - First Version documents the basic eligibility for recognition of the modules/courses taken at the host university. The online document is signed electronically in the portal by the student, the Erasmus University Coordinator and the responsible person at the host university.
Any change that occurs after the start of the mobility must be documented in an Online Learning Agreement - Changes via the portal and signed again electronically by all three parties within 5 weeks after the start of lectures at the host university.

Please proceed as follows:

  1. The Online Learning Agreement (OLA) is based on the so-called routing slip for the Online Learning Agreements:
    • Enter all modules/courses that you would like to take at the host university and assign them to the Leuphana modules that you would like to have recognized. Please complete the routing slip electronically!
      Note: You can recognize achievements from the curriculum of your own major, minor and complementary studies or degree program (GS).  See also: recognition.
    • Have the credit eligibility of the selected courses/modules confirmed by signature or email correspondence by only the person(s) responsible for credit issues (see list below). Remember to submit course/module descriptions to the responsible for recognition.
    • Designate the courses at the host university for which you don’t request recognition "additional work" on the routing slip; no signature is required.
       
  2. Transfer the courses/modules listed on the routing slip to the OLA form (First Version) in your portal. Note: ALL host university courses as well as Leuphana modules confirmed as eligible for recognition will be entered into the OLA.
     
  3. Complete the OLA in the portal by "approve" - the OLA will be sent automatically to the Leuphana International Office/the Leuphana Erasmus+ coordinator for review and approval.
     
  4. Parallel to step 3, send the routing slip matching the OLA as a pdf via email to: la.outgoing@leuphana.de.

You will receive an automatic notification as soon as your OLA has been completed or if it needs to be revised again. You can also view the processing status at any time in the portal and download the OLA as a pdf after approval by all three parties.

Follow the instructions for completing the OLA in the portal as well as the instructions for the routing slip (see below). Incomplete OLA and routing slips cannot be processed.
We accept all documents via email/with digital/electronic signature - no originals need to be submitted.

Deadlines:

  • July 15 if beginning study in fall/winter semester.
  • November 15 for the beginning of the study visit in the spring/summer semester.

The lists of the persons responsible for recognition are available on the following websites:

Students who are abroad up to and including the summer semester 2022 will continue to use the traditional Learning Agreement Before the Mobility form and the matching routing slip.

Academic Recognition / Erasmus+ Online Learning Agreement – Changed version / Erasmus+ Learning Agreement During the Mobility

Any changes to the first agreed and approved study programme (i.e. the OLA - Fist Version) after the beginning of the mobility must be documented within 5 weeks after the start of lectures at the host university with an Online Learning Agreement - Changes.

Please proceed as follows:

  1. The basis for the OLA - Changes is, similar to the the OLA - First Version, a routing slip for the OLA:
    • Any changes in the eligibility for recognition at Leuphana are mapped in the OLA routing slip (changes).
    • Please consider the "Instructions Routing Slip Online Learning Agreement (only in German)" below!
       
  2. Create OLA - changes in the portal for stays abroad:
    • Log in to the portal -> "Edit LA" -> on the left "First Version" (later visible as "Latest Proposal") -> click on the field "+ Propose Changes" at the very bottom: Courses/modules related to the completed OLA- First Version can be deleted or added.
    • Attention: The  OLA - Changes can only be created if the OLA - First Version has already been approved electronically by all parties. The approval by the respective parties is displayed in the OLA in the "First Version" area at the top.
       
  3. Finalise the changes ("Latest Proposal") in the portal by "approve" - the OLA - Changes will be sent automatically to the Leuphana International Office/the Erasmus+ Coordinator of Leuphana University for review and sign-off.
     
  4. Parallel to step 3, send routing slip matching the OLA - Changes as a pdf by e-mail to: la.outgoing@leuphana.de.

Deadlines:

  • 5 weeks after the start of the lecture period at the host university.

The lists of the persons responsible for recognition are available on the following websites:

Students who are abroad up to and including the summer semester 2022 or whose host university does not use the OLA from winter semester 2022/23 please use the traditional Learning Agreement During the Mobility form and the matching routing slip.

Confirmation of Arrival and Departure

According to the EU guidelines the Erasmus funding has to be calculated on a daily basis. Therefore, you have to submit a confirmation of your host institution indicating your date of arrival and your date of departure, which do not necessarily correspond to your actual stay in the host country but the time period directly connected to your studies abroad.

  • The beginning date is the first day on which your are present at the host university for academic reasons, e.g. a welcoming event or language course.
  • The end date is the last day on which you are required to be present at the host university, e.g. the end of the individual examination phase.
  • The shortest possible funded duration is 90 days. Shorter time periods cannot be funded.

If your stay is virtual due to corona (later arrival in or earlier departure from the host country), please use the document "Corona Confirmation of Arrival and Departure".

Request for extension of the Erasmus mobility

The extension of an Erasmus mobility period has to be approved by both the host institution and the home institution. If you would like to extend your stay, fill in the form,  collect the signature from the responsible person at your host university and send it at least one month before the end of the semester at the host university to the Leuphana International Office for confirmation and signature.

After the approval of the extension:

  • Change the end date at the Online Linguistic Support (OLS) portal
  • A new original grant agreement is not required. You will receive an e-mail with the new funding dates and the new funding amount. The changes must be confirmed by e-mail in order to take effect.
  • Send 'Notification of a study abroad' for the second semester to ssndra.schnell@leuphana.de
  • Send 'Learning Agreement' with 'Routing Slip' and email-correspondence to la.outgoing@leuphana.de

Can I write my thesis during a study period abroad?

In general, it is possible to write your thesis during a study period abroad, e.g. during an Erasmus+ semester. The thesis must be listed in the learning agreement with 25 CP (MA) or 15 CP (BA) and will be graded at the host university. It can be recognized at Leuphana just like any other academic work done abroad, if the basic eligibility for recognition has been confirmed in advance by the responsible persons at Leuphana. First and second examiners are lecturers of the host university. The conversion of grades is done according to the General Examination Regulations.

Experience report

Participants of the Erasmus+ programme must submit the obligatory Online Participant Report via the EU Mobility Tool. The report is not intended for publication but rather serves to evaluate the Erasmus+ programme. Erasmus+ participants will receive the request to submit the Online Participant Report by e-mail upon termination of their study abroad (title of the e-mail: “Ihr Bericht über den Erasmus-Auslandsaufenthalt / Erasmus participant report request”).

In addition, all outgoing students have to submit an experience report to the International Office after completion of their study abroad. These study abroad reports are an important source of information for both students who are planning a study abroad and Leuphana University for the evaluation of the exchange programmes in order to guarantee and improve quality. All reports that are released for publication are available at the information desk of the International Office.

Submit the experience report thoroughly filled in and signed within four weeks of the completion of the study abroad, latest by 15 July (in one pdf) to: outgoing@leuphana.de.

Academic Recognition/Learning Agreement

You must complete a Learning Agreement in order to guarantee the recognition of the credits you plan to acquire during your stay abroad. If possible, this should be sent to the International Office for approval before the start of your stay abroad, and at the latest 5 weeks after the start of lectures at your host university. If there are any changes in the study plan after your arrival at the host university, you must complete an additional Modified Learning Agreement and send it to the International Office (by e-mail: la.outgoing@leuphana.de) for approval within 5 weeks of the start of lectures at your host university. The modified learning agreement shows your final choice of courses at the host university, i.e. all the courses you will attend.

On the Learning Agreement, please: (1) electronically fill in all modules/courses you wish to attend at the host university (2) electronically fill in the Leuphana modules you wish to have recognised via these courses (3) obtain the signatures (or email confirmations) from the responsible persons to confirm that your chosen courses will fulfil the Leuphana requirements.
Courses for which you do not wish to apply for recognition should be identified as an "additional course" (no signature required). If, in the modified learning agreement, you list a course already approved in the first learning agreement, please indicate this in the signature field. In order to check the eligibility for recognition, those responsible persons need course/module descriptions.

Please submit the fully completed and signed Learning Agreement in the original, or the modified Learning Agreement with associated email correspondence also in one pdf to the International office, where it will be verified and signed. Please note: For the duration of the corona protection measures and related restrictions, we accept all Learning Agreement documents via e-mail/with digital signatures.

Please do not use Learning Agreement forms from host universities.

Information:

Confirmation of Arrival and Departure

Please let the host university sign the form at the beginning of your stay and immediately send it to the International Office via e-mail.
