Your stay abroad
Many students use the opportunity to combine their studies or their doctorate with a stay abroad. Leaving the university and its own living environment and gaining experience abroad for a limited time has become a matter of course for many students. A stay abroad encourages the ability to embrace other cultures and improve one’s own language skills. It shapes the personality and increases the career opportunities in science and on the labor market.
During your studies, there is a wide range of opportunities to stay abroad. You can organize your stay abroad according to your own taste, when you finance it yourself. But you can also apply for a scholarship. With scholarship you have the following possibilities:
You can study abroad for one or two semesters at a partner university. The Erasmus+ programme supports your stay at a European partner university. Studying outside Europe can be funded through Promos.
Recognition of your learning achievements
In principle, your learning achievements at a foreign university can be recognized by prior arrangement with the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology. Find information in the download centre.
You can go abroad for an internship or combine it with a study phase abroad. We will be pleased to advise you.
Teaching assistance abroad
As a student teacher you have the possibility to go abroad as a teaching assistant. An Erasmus+ teaching assistance lasts at least two months, and a teaching assistance via Promos at universities or schools outside Europe is possible for at least six weeks. PAD also offers funding for teacher assistents, which usually last six months or more, depending on the country of your choice. We are happy to advise you on the organizational and financial possibilities.
DAAD awards scholarships for doctoral students who want to go abroad. If you choose an Eastern European country for your research stay, BayHOST offers mobility grants. The scholarships of the Minerva Foundation are available for research projects in Israel, and the institutes of the Max Weber Foundation also offer scholarship programmes.
