LAS header stripe

The third year of your LAS program is the best time for spending a semester or two abroad. Planning a stay abroad has to be initiated well before that. LAS students can go abroad via UCF partnerships, other Erasmus programs, the International Office, or as free movers. In addition to studying abroad, it is possible for all LAS students to study at any of the EUCOR universities in this region during their time in Freiburg.

UCF Programs

Students who want to go on UCF exchange programs should be in their second year of studies at the time of application. As an LAS student, you can find more specific information about how to apply for UCF programs on the
ILIAS Info Board.

The Student Service Center also provides general information on exchange programs and study abroad opportunities.

Erasmus "Restplätze"

There is also the possibility to go abroad through the Erasmus Programs of other faculties by applying for open places (Restplätze). Here is an overview of all Erasmus Partnerships at the University of Freiburg. Please note that deadlines, terms, and conditions vary between the departments. Some partnerships only allow you to take courses in a specific discipline while others are open. For specific questions, please contact the Erasmus coordinator of the particular faculty or the Erasmus Office.


International Office

Study abroad places administered by the International Office are open to all students of the University of Freiburg. Deadlines for the different programs vary and some are up to one year in advance. For more information on destinations, scholarships and funding, and on the application procedures, please refer to the International Office website.


Free Mover

You can also go to any university you like as a free mover. This option gives you a lot of freedom but it also means that you are responsible for all organization and administration yourself and that you will have to pay tuition fees. The International Office offers advising for students who are interested in studying abroad as free movers.
