Studying abroad

Increase expertise in your subject, broaden your horizons

Studying abroad opens up new perspectives on the subject you are studying. You can increase your subject knowledge and explore areas that interest you in more depth. At the same time, you learn a new culture of teaching and learning, as well as boosting your language skills. You can arrange to have your study achievements from abroad accredited towards your studies at FAU.

With its numerous foreign partner universities, FAU offers a wide variety of options for studying abroad. With Erasmus+ you can study at FAU partner universities throughout Europe and in selected partner countries. The FAU direct exchange programme offers opportunities for studying in countries outside Europe.

Even if you choose to study abroad as a free mover rather than with one of the exchange programmes offered by FAU, you can find important information on our website to help you organise and prepare for studying abroad.
