The Process

Before the Stay Abroad

  • Find a placement in an English speaking country for a minimum of three months

  • If you want to pursue funding possibilities, contact the International Office or visit their list of funding opportunities here.
  • Fill out the form Agreement Stay Abroad to ensure that your placement will be recognised. In order to have the form signed book an appointment with Mr. Hübner (C 5.020).

During the Stay Abroad

  • Get a signed letter of reference from your placement, including arrival and departure dates and confirmation that you were in an English speaking context (if you study abroad, make sure to get a transcript of records)
  • Speak, learn and enjoy!

Upon your return 

  • Fill out and submit the online Questionnaire Destination Abroad
  • Fill out the Certificate of Completion and hand it in to the Studierendenservice (Corinna Müller, C 8.217) to have it signed (bring originals of your Agreement Stay Abroad, your letter of reference/confirmation of your activities and the confirmation of the questionnaire with you)
