Ways to go abroad

Explore the opportunities

There are many different ways to spend a period of your studies abroad. Whether it's to study, do an internship, work on a research project or take a specialist or language course, we are happy to help you find your way abroad.

Sustainable university experience abroad

An individual stay at a foreign university can be the length of one trimester, semester or academic year. SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences has partner universities all over the world, from Eastern Europe to North America, where you can study within the framework of exchange programs. One of the most important requirements for success: careful and early preparation. We support you in the admissions process at the host university as well as in other administrative matters (visa, health insurance, etc.).

First Steps

International job experience

With practical experience abroad you have an ace up your sleeve for future applications. Take the chance and complete an internship abroad during your studies! The length and payment of the internship can vary greatly. We will support you in your search for an internship and your application process. The International Office will advise you on funding opportunities.

First Steps

Intensive short stays

Specialised courses such as Summer and Winter Schools are very compressed learning programs that usually last between 2 and 8 weeks. These programmes are a great alternative for you if you want to gain experience abroad without going abroad for a whole semester. On the Internet you can find an overview of the programmes offered. The schools of the SRH Berlin University of Applied Science also have different summer school cooperations. Since the programmes vary greatly (duration, content, ECTS, fees, etc.), it is best to contact the International Office in order to get some advice.

Communication is everything

The best place to learn languages is where they are spoken: on the spot. The length of a language course can vary between one week and several months. It is worthwhile staying with a host family or at a student residence. This way you will quickly make contacts and learn how to use the language in everyday life. Registration for language courses is often possible at shorter notice than for semesters abroad and internships. You can find much more information about language courses abroad on the DAAD website.

Exchange for teaching and administration

Getting to know another university, its structure, organisation and working methods, making contacts and exchanging experiences with colleagues abroad - whether as a staff week, an internship or as individual job shadowing - is always an enriching experience. The International Office knows what is possible.

Expanding the faculty

In the context of a progressive worldwide networking and internationalisation of science and business, intercultural competence is increasingly the measure of all things, also in teaching and research. There are many opportunities for the establishment and development of international teaching projects. The form of the exchange depends primarily on the individual's own prerequisites and personal interests, as well as on the intended benefit for scientific knowledge gain. Our International Office supports you in planning your project. An overview of current research topics can be found on our research pages.

Who will finance it? Support programmes for your stay abroad

An international experience must be paid for. After all, there are special costs for visas, long distance flights, international health insurance, etc. We will show you which funding opportunities are available for your time abroad.
