Going Abroad


The "Going abroad" information seminars cover specific countries and topics and provide an overview of how to plan and organise a semester abroad as well as of funding schemes, application procedures and university partnerships. Most seminars include reports by students on their stay abroad!

The seminars take place each Tuesday at 14:30 at Lecture Hall 2E, Building 22.21. The dates for the 2019 summer semester are listed on the poster on the left.


Supported by the International Office, the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) organizes an Erasmus-Speedmeeting, where students interested in going abroad via Erasmus will listen to a short presentation about the Erasmus programme and get in contact with former Erasmus students and with students from partner universities:

  • In November, the Speedmeeting takes place during the GoAbroad-Week.
  • In May, the Speedmeeting is a separate event. The concrete date will be announced here.

The Erasmus Student Network is a student organization which looks after foreign Erasmus students and aims at spreading the Erasmus idea. New members are always welcome! Just have a look at the ESN homepage:
