Year Abroad - Overview

The yearning for distant lands - a year abroad

After studying for two years, students get the chance to transfer their newly gained knowledge into life outside the university. Both the 5th and 6th Semester are spent abroad – either studying in a foreign country or working for interesting companies. During this year students gain experiences which will help them not only to improve their academic skills but also to grow personally. There are two possibilities to spend the year: students can either study abroad for one semester followed by an internship or do two internships.
