Funding for semester stays, internships, study and competition trips around the world.
What is Promos?
PROMOS funds can be used to support stays abroad outside Europe. Projects such as study trips or competition trips that are not eligible for funding in any of the structured DAAD programmes (e.g. Erasmus+) are also considered in PROMOS.
Are you planning a short internship in Australia? Dreaming of writing your thesis on Mount Kilimanjaro? The DAAD mobility programme PROMOS is the funding programme of your choice.
The funds are administered and awarded through the International Office. The search for and organisation of a study or internship place or language course remains your responsibility.
What goals does Promos pursue?
Erasmus+ wants to:
- Increasing the mobility of students and doctoral candidates at German universities
- Setting the focus for the universities' own international mobility
- Support and expansion of the internationalisation strategy
In the long term, the programme contributes to the development of efficient and cosmopolitan higher education institutions.
