The Department for English and American Studies maintains a wide range of collaborations for the mutual exchange of students and staff with universities in Europe as well as outside of it. The following pages provide you with the all the information necessary for planning and carrying out a stay abroad.  

If you are interested in a stay abroad, you should start planning well in time because aside from personal aspects such as your preferred location, there are many organisational matters to consider. As a rule, applications should be submitted early (upto 1 year before the start of the stay) and there are certain course requirements to be met for which attestations (or transcripts) are needed.

You have a variety of possibilities to complete and finance a stay abroad as part of your studies. The following pages refer primarily to the Erasmus programme (start with “outgoing students”). For possibilities of studying abroad in non-European countries and the appropriate funding opportunities, please see the information and additionally resources under “more offers”. Frequently asked questions are addressed in our FAQ and you will find explanations of terms specific to stays abroad in the glossary. If you still cannot find the information you are looking for, do feel free to speak to us!
