Short-term exchanges

In addition to a clinical placement or semester abroad, each Bachelor’s degree programme also offers different possibilities for a short, intensive international experience.

All study programmes

We always receive offers from our partners and networks. These are intensive week-long courses on specific topics (“Intensive Programmes”), summer schools, study trips, and similar offers. Annually the “International Days” offer our students the chance to find out more about the possibilities of studying abroad.
