Frequently Asked Questions to PROMOS scholarships
!!!The following information are as of the current status (07.04.2020)!!!

As soon as we receive further or new information, we will update the FAQ as soon possible. We kindly ask for your understanding due to the fact that finding solutions for all students consume a lot of time during the current situation and we would like to thank you in advance for your patience. Please also find important information on the website of DAAD

I intend to start a study or internship abroad. Can I start my PROMOS mobility?

We are currently advising against starting a stay abroad.

 

What do I need to do if I do not start my mobility?

Please write an E-Mail to international.office@hochschule-stralsund.de with

1) a short explanation why the mobility must be cancelled,

2) the planned start date of the mobility,

3) evidence about incurred costs.

Will the scholarship be paid if I do not start my stay abroad?

Fixed rates for the stay abroad can only be paid for the respective period in which the student stayed abroad for the purpose of studying. Additional, already paid mobility rates must be reclaimed back (regulations for half/full rates apply here).

 

Some costs already incurred for me because of the planned mobility. Are they refundable?

If the stay abroad, that was initiated by a PROMOS scholarship, is not taken up, the scholarship cannot be paid. If the scholarship was already paid, the payment must be returned.

Regardless of whether a mobility rate was paid or not to finance a study abroad, evidenced costs (e.g. flight or train tickets, cancellation costs, visa fees and costs for vaccines) which occurred due to non-cancellable travel bookings shall be refundable to the maximum of the amount of the mobility fixed rate which applies to the particular country. Costs for travel insurances CANNOT be reimbursed.

Actual, non-cancellable expenses for the stay abroad (e.g. rent deposits) shall be refunded to the maximum of the amount of the mobility fixed rate which applies to the particular country and in terms of economic feasibility. 

In this context we would like to remind you of your duty of mitigation (e.g. conclusion of a travel cancellation insurance, travel bookings at a later point of time).

Generally, only actual necessary cancelation/rebooking costs that cannot be legitimated in another way can be reimbursed with evidence only. This evidence must be submitted reasonably (e.g. cancellation of flights by the airline, departure constraints). The documents will be kept by the University of Applied Sciences Stralsund for documentary purposes. 

Non-cash benefits (e.g. air tickets) that sponsored persons receive need to be considered when calculation overruns as well.

However, we are currently checking the possibilities of cost absorption since the resources of the programme nearly exhausted to the fullest. A refund of costs can therefore not be confirmed until a final clarification by the DAAD.

I am currently performing my studies or internship abroad. Can I cancel my PROMOS mobility?

All PROMOS sponsored persons worldwide can end their stay abroad early if desired.

Meanwhile the Federal Foreign Office published a worldwide travel warning. You should immediately consider and use possibilities to return. For finding a decision, please also consider that the situation is developing in some countries very dynamically and unpredictably. The numbers of Corona-infected can increase suddenly in every country. At the same time regular travel connections decrease sharply and issued travel constraints rise worldwide. The increasing numbers of people infected will burden local health systems eventually. Besides the health infrastructure of a country, the political stability and general security standard in the host country should also be considered when deciding. You should not assume that a return programme by the German government will be implemented in every country if the situation gets worse.

 

What do I have to do if completely drop out of the mobility?

Please write an E-Mail to international.office@hochschule-stralsund.de with

1) a short explanation why the mobility must be cancelled,

2) the actual period of the mobility (start and end date),

3) evidence about incurred costs.

What will be refunded if I end my stay abroad if no mobility fixed rate was paid?

Fixed rates for the stay abroad can only be paid for the respective period in which the student stayed abroad for the purpose of studying. Additional, already paid mobility rates must be paid back (regulations for half/full rates apply here).

If the stay abroad must be ended early within the PROMOS mobility period, costs for a new return flight or costs for a change of bookings shall be refundable.

Regardless of whether a mobility rate was paid or not to finance a study abroad, evidenced costs (e.g. flight or train tickets, cancellation costs, visa fees and costs for vaccines) which occurred due to non-cancellable travel bookings shall be refundable to the maximum of the amount of the mobility fixed rate which applies to the particular country. Costs for travel insurances CANNOT be reimbursed.

Actual, non-cancellable expenses for the stay abroad (e.g. rent deposits) shall be refunded to the maximum of the amount of the mobility fixed rate which applies to the particular country and in terms of economic feasibility. 

In this context we would like to remind you of your duty of mitigation (e.g. conclusion of a travel cancellation insurance, travel bookings at a later point of time).

Am I still eligible to receive the PROMOS funding if I am not staying in my host country, but continue my semester abroad via online courses offered by my host university?

PROMOS-scholarship holders that ended their stay abroad but still perform their study objectives in online courses or in a similar way – and therefore fulfil part of the scholarship purpose – can be funded in this period of time with a scholarship until the end of the original mobility period. Scholarships that have not been taken up yet are not eligible to be paid.

You need to submit plausible evidence of performing your study objectives (e.g. registration for online courses, other prove given by your host university). The documents will be kept by the University of Applied Sciences Stralsund for documentary purposes.

Am I still eligible to receive the PROMOS funding if I am not staying in my host country, but continue my internship abroad via Home Office?

PROMOS-scholarship holders that ended their stay abroad but still perform the objectives of the internship via Home Office or in a similar way – and therefore fulfil part of the scholarship purpose – can be funded in this period of time with a scholarship until the end of the original mobility period. Scholarships that have not been taken up yet are not eligible to be paid.

You need to submit plausible evidence of performing your study objectives (e.g. registration for online courses, other prove given by your host university). The documents will be kept by the University of Applied Sciences Stralsund for documentary purposes.

I would like to stay in my host country. Is this possible?

PROMOS-scholarship holders that decide to stay in their host country voluntarily and on their own responsibility, need to take into account that for staying eligible to receive the scholarship in the mobility period need to fulfil the scholarship objectives. The decision, whether the purpose of the scholarship can be met lays with the University of Applied Sciences Stralsund. Therefore, please get in contact with your responsible study course coordinator or study office and the International Office.

If you should decide to stay in your host country, you will do it on your own responsibility to the exclusion of any liability by the University of Applied Sciences Stralsund. We would like to remind you at the same time to register yourself in the “Krisenvorsorgelisten”  of the Federal Foreign Office.

Please read independent news and inform yourself in your social surroundings. Providently collect telephone and emergency numbers of the German foreign diplomatic mission (p.r.n. save them on your mobile phone). You can find the phone numbers on the website of the suitable German foreign diplomatic mission.

What happens if I cannot go back to Germany?

If PROMOS-scholarship holders cannot come back to Germany, the sponsorship for the stay abroad shall be extended (up to a period of six months maximum). However, we are currently checking the possibilities of extending sponsorships since the resources of the programme nearly exhausted to the fullest. An extension of the scholarship can therefore not be confirmed until a final clarification by the DAAD.

What does a plausible proof of my mobility (studies or internship) that is continued online look like?

A plausible proof must have the following characteristics:

  • Personalization - name and, if applicable, matriculation number at the host institution should appear on the document and
  • Purpose of the scholarship - information about the specific courses / tasks that are continued online and / or
  • Confirmation by the person responsible - signature of an authorized person at the host institution

The proof is only valid at the end of the mobility in connection with the form "Anerkennung von Prüfungsleistungen" (Acceptence of exams) and the official Transcript of Records of the partner university respectively the qualified cetificate of employment

An example for the confirmation can be found here

What does a plausible proof of the additional costs look like?

A plausible proof must have the following characteristics:

  • Personalization - to whom the document belongs to and
  • Date of issue - when was the document issued and
  • Situation - what type of cost is present 

The proof is only valid in connection with a proof of the original costs and a traceable explanation regarding the additional costs related to the mobility (difference).

For the accounting process of costs that actually incurred, original documents or certified copies of rental contracts, travel expenses, etc. are required. Only in justified exceptional cases, documents as scans or copies are sufficient. Documents must be in German or English. Scholarship holders should let documents in other languages ​​get translated. If the cost of a certified copy significantly exceeds the amount stated in the document, a simple translation may also be sufficient. Please contact the International Office of Hochschule Stralsund – University of Applied Sciences for further clarifications.

Am I still eligible to receive the Erasmus+ funding if I am not staying in my host country, but continue my semester abroad via online courses offered by my host university?

Sponsored persons that continue their study mobility abroad via online courses still receive their funding. This requires that all courses are offered by the university of the host country and contribute to the study objectives defined in the Learning Agreement. It is not of importance where the courses are taken up in the host or home country. Hence, the study objectives still must be accomplished (regardless of the place where the courses or exams will be implemented) in order to fulfil the Grant Agreement.

How do I have to provide evidence about the final mobility phase?

Please let the institution in your host country know that under the fulfilment of all requirements the confirmation for a stay abroad for the whole period of studies (present phase and E-Learning phase) should be certificated.
