In this section, you will find information about the financial aid opportunities for a study abroad period.

Although we have not listed all of the possibilities here, the most important scholarships have been included. For information about additional scholarships, please search through the database of the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).  

Another useful overview of scholarships can be found on www.stipendienlotse.de (available in German only), a search engine by the Federal Department of Education and Research.

Foreign universities usually do not offer their own scholarships for incoming foreign exchange students. However, in the case of students who are completing an entire degree programme (Bachelor or Master) abroad, there may be financial aid offered by the respective host country or host university. For information about these possibilities, please contact the respective host university directly.

Since 2015, the British Council offers a Schoraship programme for the first year of a full-time degree abroad: www.britishcouncil.de/en/exam/ielts/british-council-ielts-award-2015.


The link “Work Placements Abroad” will direct you to information concerning funding opportunities for internships abroad or for foreign language teaching assistantships abroad.
