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

The Faculty is connected with several European universities through Erasmus+ and offers students the additional opportunity for university-wide cooperative agreements, especially in the context of university partnerships, for completing a stay abroad.
