Study Abroad Semester
Application for a Study Abroad stay:
Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences has concluded so-called "Study Abroad Agreements" with a small number of universities overseas. This means that although you have to pay study abroad fees, all students at Frankfurt UAS receive a discount of usually 10%. Please inform yourself about the possibility to counter-finance tuition fees with Auslands-BAFöG. If you apply for a Study Abroad program and submit all documents on time and in the correct manner, you will usually be accepted by the partner university. It is possible to apply for both SoSe and WiSe, in each case at the application deadlines for Overseas. However, you do not have to go through a selection procedure as long as you meet the admission requirements.
Frankfurt UAS has such an agreement with the following universities:
- University of Technology Sydney, Australia
- University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia
- Monash University, Australia
- Unversity of Otago, New Zealand
- Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology, New Zealand
