Semester abroad outside of Europe

Many scholarship opportunities exist to study outside of Western Europe. The largest single donor of scholarship funds is the German Academic Exchange Service Deutsche Akademische Austauschdienst (DAAD). More information is provided directly on the DAAD web pages, for example, a scholarship data base. The DAAD PROMOS program also supports studies abroad beyond the borders of Europe.



Organizing a stay abroad under the framework of the exchange and aid programmes, generally has advantages such as having tuition-free study places, many organizational issues need not be clarified personally, and in some cases, the recognition of credit hours earned abroad is already coordinated prior to the foreign visit.


  • Successful completion of 2-3 study semesters at the time of application or completion of the basic course requirements by the start date of the scholarship semester.

  • A current letter of recommendation from a university professor

  • Proof of language ability

  • A well informed presentation of your motivation and understanding of the study project and the selected partner school
  • If you already have your first degree, opportunities still exist to study abroad as part of a post-graduate or a master programme.

Compliance with application deadlines is very important for scholarship programmes. Some of these begin as early as 15 months prior to the start of the study exchange visit.
