In addition to the classic study visits abroad, there are numerous other opportunities to discover distant countries and cultures. Whether language courses at universities in Europe or as a free mover: On this page you will find other ways to get you abroad.
Have you already considered a partner university with which the FSU has no cooperation agreement or do you want to independently look for a host university? No problem! Explore the world as a free mover!
As the name "Free Mover" suggests, you go on your international adventure on your own. This means the independent search for a host university and the entire organization of the stay abroad. You must clarify all the formalities and modalities yourself. Despite the much higher organizational effort compared to an exchange program such as ERASMUS +, it can be worthwhile to get to know the world as a free mover, because you can organize your stay according to your individual wishes.
Be it a BAföG abroad grant, scholarship or student loan: your stay abroad should not fail due to financial means. So get information about financing options early on. For example, as a free mover you can also receive support from the PROMOS scholarship programme for study visits or theses abroad. For more information, see funding opportunities for stays abroad.
The Career Service of the FSU offers an information portal on career orientation, qualification and entry. Links to job exchanges and much more are also available for job opportunities abroad.
Student group trips are ideal for visits, specialist courses and workshops in the higher education sector, with the exception of compulsory excursions. The application must be made by a university lecturer from the FSU.
Study trips by German student groups can be funded worldwide. The aim of the funding is to impart specialist knowledge through appropriate visits, visits and information talks in the higher education sector, as well as participation in specialist courses, block seminars and workshops at partner universities. At the same time, the encounter with local students and scientists should contribute to the establishment and maintenance of contacts between German and foreign universities and gain a cultural insight into economic, political and cultural life.
