Student support:

If you would like to study abroad, our office fully supports you. The first point of contact is the Study Abroad Advisory Office (Auslandsstudienberatung) at the Student Service Centre. You can find the contact information on the right-hand column of this page. Staff members are well informed about the programmes and can assist you in organizing and preparing for your going abroad.

Every semester, our office holds multiple information sessions where we present our exchange programmes across various regions of the world (North America, Asia, Europe, etc.). Former exchange students also share their experiences as well.

What we offer:

Upon your return, we encourage you to share your study abroad experiences with your fellow students, and offer some formal channels to do so, such as at the information sessions, through the buddy programmes, or in your reports about your experiences abroad.
