Going abroad during your studies

Have you always been dreaming about studying at the University of Málaga, doing an internship in a company in Australia or writing your master thesis at a scientific institution in the USA? Take the opportunity to make this real and spend a part of your studies abroad. You will make a lot of professional and personal experiences.

Do allow about a year notice to prepare for your stay abroad, because especially for grants you have to apply at an early stage.

The first address for questions about your stay abroad is the University of Potsdam's International Relations Office (Akademisches Auslandsamt, AAA). You will find a lot of information on different aspects of a stay abroad on the website "Studium & Praktikum im Ausland".

You can find a lot of helpful information on different destinations, study programs in foreign countries, grants and much more on the website of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and on the website "go out – studieren weltweit", a campaign of the DAAD and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Our advice:

Read the experience reports of your fellow students! You will find reports of CS-students and of students of the entire university.

Also contact your study advisors. They will help you to fit your stay abroad as best as possible in your study plan.
