If we have any questions regarding your travel claim, you will receive feedback from the Team Graduate Studies before we officially pass your application on to the Executive Board.
JLU staff (also applies to WiMis and AHKs) must include in addition:
- the “Dienstreiseanzeige” form, which you may submit along with your application;
- for trips within the EU, the European Economic Area, or Switzerland, and depending on the destination and length of your trip, a “Bescheinigung A1”. Please check the JLU’s guidelines (German only) and, if necessary, download the appropriate form, or get in touch with Lena Nüchter (Team Graduate Studies) if you have questions.
