Further Options

Self-Organized Studies Abroad

If you are interested in an exchange beyond the ERASMUS cooperation, there is the possibility of using existing interdisciplinary agreements of the JGU with partner universities worldwide, financed by scholarships:: Partnerschip scholarships.

If you are interested in an exchange independent of the already existing cooperations, you can also freely and independently organize a time of studies abroad. You apply directly to an international university and spend part of your studies there. Please note that in this case you will have to pay the tuition fees at the host university yourself. Individual mobility can also be supported by a PROMOS scholarship.

Please discuss questions of recognition in advance with the international representatives of your study subjects.
