Student Mobility

Spending an exchange semester abroad is a tremendous opportunity to enrich your studies.

Our institute offers a wide range of possibilities.  We have agreements with our partner universities within the ERASMUS+ program, within the CEEPUS program, and also with the Rangjung Yeshe Institute in Kathmandu. Take the opportunity! You will find all informations about these possibilities in the submenu.

Besides the opportunities for student mobility, we are also very active in organising staff and teaching mobility. Watch out for our announcements of seminars and public lectures by our guest researchers from abroad!
