Studying Abroad

There are many ways to integrate a stay abroad into your studies. The most prominent are the ERASMUS+ program, a Direct Exchange and the Promos program. Our office at the department of Geosciences is only responsible for the ERASMUS+ program. If you are interested in a Direct Exchange or the Promos program, please visit the central page for studying abroad of the Free University Berlin.


ATTENTION: The Brexit agreement, which includes the future Erasmus+ program, does not change anything for the implementation of the current Erasmus+ program for the Academic Year 21/22. The UK will continue to participate in the Erasmus program for the Academic Year 21/22. You can also find pictures and stories from students abroad on our Instagram page.

Direct Exchange

Direct Exchange offers students the opportunity to participate in a worldwide university exchange. Students have their tuition fees waived and some universities also offer stipendia for living expenses.


With the help of PROMOS, individually organized short stays abroad (e.g. internships or excursions) of a duration of up to six months can also be funded if the project or the destination does not fit in with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) or the ERASMUS+ program.
