When you come to your guest institution you might have or want to change your academic programme, extend it or cancel your stay abroad. Here you will find all relevant information. Moreover you have the chance to take part in a photo competition or participate in the "Cultural Learning" online phase of the accompanying seminar.
The course changes are generated in Mobility Online and entered into the Learning Agreement under the item "Section to be completed during the mobility" and have it confirmed by your host university in the "receiving institution" section. The changes must be submitted to your coordinator of FH JOANNEUM within one month after starting your studies at the host institution. The signed version must be uploaded to Mobility Online.
The Learning Agreement has to be identical with the Transcript of Records from the receiving institution in order to get full credit for all courses finished at the host institution.
Other programmes (Joint Study, Freemover)
If your study programme changes during your studies abroad, you must change this in Mobility Online and forward the form "Changes to the proposed study programme " to your degree programme at FH JOANNEUM for approval and signature. The signed changes will be uploaded to Mobility Online.
In order to prove that you have completed the courses you will need the Transcript of Records which was issued by your host institution.
Extension of your stay
If you want to extend your study abroad stay, you need to apply for an extension at least one month before the original end". The head of your program at FH JOANNEUM and the host institution need to sign the extension application.
A funded extension is possible only once, and the extension period must immediately follow the originally granted funding period. The total period of stay of twelve months per study cycle may not be exceeded. Extension requests are only possible for a minimum stay of 30 days.
If you are unable to start your Erasmus stay or wish to cancel it, please inform the International Relations and the relevant international coordinator for your degree programme immediately. In addition, please cancel your stay on Mobility Online.
Cancellations of stays that have lasted longer than the minimum duration (2 full months) will be paid out on a daily basis.
Cancellations under the minimum duration that are not marked as "force majeure" cannot be funded and if the first payment of the grant has already been made at that time, it must be repaid.
Stays not started, where nothing has been paid out yet, can be cancelled without consequences.
Cultural Learning – Study Abroad Seminar
During your stay abroad and during the 2nd part of our Accompanying Seminar for your stay abroad, the accompanying “Cultural Learning”, you will have to deal with 3 questions regarding Culture, Europe and Integration.
