Eligibility requirements

Goal & purpose, time frame

  • The goal is to develop and implement joint physical mobility curricula and activities.
  • The joint physical presence phase lasts between 5 and 30 days and is used for joint learning.
  • A virtual phase used for joint online learning is mandatory. There are no time constraints for the virtual phase. It takes place before, if necessary during and/or after the physical mobility.

Requirements for the course

  • The workload corresponds to at least 3 ECTS for students, which are recorded in the Online Learning Agreement for mobile participants.
  • BIP can also be designed for staff. The workload should also correspond at least to the workload of 3 ECTS.
  • If a BIP for students takes place within the framework of a course, it must be published in the course catalog.
  • The application, selection and participation criteria must be communicated and documented transparently (for mobile students, an applicant list is to be maintained as for Erasmus+ semester stays, if FU students participate in a BIP abroad).


  • The minimum number of participants is 15. If that number ist not met, the project cannot be funded with Erasmus+ funds.
  • There is no upper limit for the number of participants; as a guideline, up to 60 participants may be accepted.
  • OS funds (Organizational Support) for financing the preparation, implementation and follow-up are limited to a maximum of 20 participants. No OS funds are granted for additional participants.
  • Participants are learners (students or staff). Staff acting as teachers in the BIP do not count towards the number of participants.
  • Participants from partner universities in partner countries outside the Erasmus+ area (see below) do not count towards the minimum number of participants.
  • Erasmus+ exchange students cannot participate in Erasmus+ Blended Intensive programs, as double funding is excluded in the Erasmus+ program.

Participating universities

  • A BIP involves at least two other universities from two other European Erasmus+ program countries (=a total of at least three universities from Erasmus+ program countries).
  • Partners outside the Erasmus+ program countries can also be involved.


  • An appropriate (at least bilateral) Erasmus+ Inter-Institutional Agreement, specifying blended mobilities and the number of mobilities, will be agreed upon during the planning process. Multilateral agreements are not obligatory.
  • Participants' mobilities will be funded by the home universities as Erasmus+ mobilities (Erasmus+ program countries) or from other funds (partner countries outside the Erasmus+ area).
  • Erasmus+ funding conditions for student and staff mobility apply.
  • (Teaching) staff can be invited from any institution in the Programme Countries and funded by the coordinating university with Erasmus+ staff funds.
