Semesters abroad enable students to enhance their foreign-language and intercultural competencies in a targeted manner, thereby improving their opportunities on the job market. Stays abroad can be completed in the context of university studies (one or more semesters) or as an internship.

The faculty is closely connected with many European universities within the framework of Erasmus+ and also offers students the opportunity to spend a period abroad through university-wide cooperation agreements, especially within the framework of higher education partnerships.
