You can find an overview of our partner universities here.

During a Bachelor Degree, the 4th of 5th semester is the best for a semester abroad. Depending on your individual study plan you can get up to 30 credit points (CP/ECTS) approved for your semester abroad. During the 3rd semester of the Master Degree, a module called "International Studies" (20 CP/ECTS) is integrated which you can chose alternatively to the "Individual Desgin Project". Therefore, the credit points (CP/ECTS) that you received during your stay abroad will be approved here. In addition, you can receive credit points for electives.

The deadlines for an exchange over the Erasmus+ Program are the 1.03 for the winter semester and the 31.08 for the summer semester. A nomination needs to have been acquired from the International Office prior to the deadlines if a student wants to do a semester abroad.

For a lot of our partner universities there are no language requirements, but sufficient language skills are essential for studying abroad. Many universities offer lectrues and projects which are held in English, but most of the lectures are held in their native language. That's why it's important to have some basic knowledge of the native language, because not only will this help you in lectures, it will help you understand the culture of the local people. You can participate in language courses offered by the Jade University. You can also participate in language courses offered by the Language Centre of the University of Oldenburg which can be recognized as an elective.
