Study/Time Abroad

Students are required to spend a period of time in an English-speaking country or region in order to perfect their speaking, listening, and writing skills and to broaden and supplement their cultural understanding. This website is meant to guide you through this part of your degree. In the context of our department and the spread of the English language around the world, the first question you might ask is just where you could spend your time abroad; the second, what can I do in the country of my choice and, more important, how do I get there? We will assist you with your choice of place, type of work, funding, and the determination of the length of your stay.


Where can I find more information on the stay abroad?

This is a good place to start: Check out our Study Abroad FAQ  section. It should answer most of your initial questions. In information meetings once a semester you will have the opportunity to ask any other questions you may have, and in the office hours of your student advisor you can discuss special questions pertaining to your particular case. Consider joining our info group on Facebook (search for Auslandsaufenthalt Anglistik UdS) or our info group on MS Teams via the following code: e0p2k1c
