The International Office also provides support for our international guests before, during and after their stay at the KU.
We are very happy that you are interested in staying and teaching at the KU in the context of an Erasmus+ short program. We provide help and support when it comes to finding a suitable visiting chair and planning your stay. Please send your application to welcome(at)ku.de and include the following documents and information:
Unfortunately, the KU does not offer own guest houses for international visiting researchers. This means that we will have to find suitable accommodation for you on the private housing market. The International Office supports you in your search; however, we cannot guarantee success. Therefore, we kindly ask you to also get active yourself.
If you hire a realtor to find suitable accommodation for you, you will have to pay a commission in case of success. The commission can amount to up to three monthly rental payments (and must not be higher than that). In addition, you will also have to pay a damage deposit upon conclusion of the rental agreement, which also amounts to three monthly rents but will be reimbursed after termination of the rental agreement if no damages have been incurred.
During the winter months, it is also possible to rent a holiday apartment in Eichstätt.
If you are accompanied by your family, please take your family members into account when applying for the visa. If you children accompany you, please bear in mind to bring the children’s birth certificates when traveling to Germany. You also have to ensure that your family members are sufficiently covered by health insurance. If you are covered by statutory health insurance in Germany and your spouse does not work, he/she can be included in your insurance scheme. The same applies for your children. If you have to take out private health insurance, please make sure that insurance cover extends to all your family members.
More information on insurance cover is available here.
School attendance is compulsory in Germany, so please bear in mind to register your school-age children with the responsible school in due time. Younger children (from the age of three) can go to kindergarten. Enrolled doctoral candidates at the KU have the possibility to register their children aged between one and three at the University’s own crèche. In order to be able to do so, they must become a member of the sponsoring association. The International Office is happy to help if you require support in finding suitable childcare offers.
