The ERASMUS+Program offers students plenty of opportunities to spend a semester abroad at a university in Europe.

Maybe you would prefer to go slightly further afield and to discover a country that you have never visited before? In that case, a a stay at a non-European institution via the School of Business and Economics or via the International Office would be the right choice for you!

Perhaps the country or a specific university that you have chosen is not part of our portfolio? In that case, you have the possibility to arrange your semester abroad by yourself as a Freemover .
