Semester abroad: Great interest in 2018

Ilmenau, 12/12/2017. On Tuesday Dr. Andreas Schwarz, International Commissioner of the Department of Economic Sciences and Media, invited students of the faculty to an information event about opportunities to spend a semester abroad at one of the partner universities in Europe, Asia, North America or South America. Internships abroad were also discussed. There was a great deal of interest: around 80 participants from all courses of the faculty attended the event and learned about the application process, financing possibilities and international partners. Around 90% of those present signalized serious interest in studying abroad for one semester. Moreover, four students spoke of their personal experiences during a semester abroad in Jönköping (Sweden), Leeds (UK) and Bali (Indonesia). It became clear that semesters abroad not only offer exciting professional perspectives, but also pave the way for valuable cultural and personal experiences, such as glacier hiking in Sweden, visits to the Scottish Highlands and motor scooter rides in Bali.
