Why Studying Abroad?

A stay abroad enables you to discover your field of study from a different cultural and social perspective, to expand your language skills, to make new friends worldwide and to continue your intercultural training. All these experiences and newly acquired knowledge will be useful to you in your later professional career.

However, before you decide to spend one or two semesters at one of our partner universities or to do your internship abroad, we invite you to browse through our pages and then visit us personally.

The International Office:

  • plans your studies or internship abroad with you
  • gives important information on application requirements and application procedures
  • helps you to find scholarships (DAAD, funding from other institutions, Fulbright, etc.) – NO PLACEMENT OF INTERNSHIPS
  • provides you with information material
  • advises you on visa and insurance requirements abroad

On the following pages you can inform yourself about the various possibilities of a stay abroad during your studies. We offer stays at partner universities in Europe (ERASMUS+) and worldwide.

You can also find helpful tips on what a stay abroad can bring and achieve on the Internet:
