Welcome to the Study Abroad Advisory from the Faculty of Business and Economics!

We are happy to support you with your questions about...

  • studying abroad
  • different options for an exchange semester
  • recognition of courses you have completed abroad
  • spending an exchange semester in Göttingen (for international students)

As of June 2021, our colleague Anja Schöfer will temporarily take over Jan Christian Schinke's tasks in the Study Abroad Advisory. You can still contact us via auslandsstudium@wiwi.uni-goettingen.de.

As of 9 June 2021: All students who started a master’s degree in Development Economics, Global Business or International Economics in the winter term 2018/19, summer term 2019, winter term 2019/20, summer term 2020 and winter term 2020/21 are exempted from completing a mandatory semester abroad for the completion of their master’s degree due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
