Course Selection and Recognition

All our degree programs are structured in such a way that you can integrate a semester abroad without being set back in your studies. In order to ensure this, it is important that you take a close look at the courses offered by your host institution even before you apply. Please consider our advice on how to select your partner university.

After having received your confirmation of placement, you will discuss with the relevant contact persons at the dean's office and in your department which courses can be integrated into your program of studies. Experience has shown that the courses of the Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies module (in most bachelor's programs) are particularly well suited for being taken abroad. Courses in your major that you take abroad can usually also be recognized for your program without any problems. Courses in your combination major (B.A. and M.A. Culture and Economy), however, are often less suitable for being studied abroad.
