Every enrolled student at Frankfurt UAS can apply for a semester abroad at the International Office. The prerequisite is that you go abroad in the 3rd semester at the earliest, and that you acquire at least 12 ECTS abroad. Due to the required lead time, a semester abroad before the 3rd semester is not possible.
Take a look at our application database Mobility Online to find suitable universities for your degree program. You will then have to research the courses offered by the partner university on their website: Does the offer there appeal to you? Do the semester times suit yours? Can you afford the desired country and the city? How about living space there?
Finding the right host partner university is a very subjective matter and there is no magic formula. It depends on your preferences and wishes, here you come to Mobility Online.
The deadlines for a semester abroad are the same every year:
Autumn Semester: Deadline 15.01.
Sumer Semester: Deadline 15.01. or 30.06.
The application takes place two semesters in advance. You can talk to your international representative in advance about what semester is best to have a semester abroad. You can find a list of the international representatives here.
In principle, this is possible, but you must apply here independently at your desired university. In addition, unfortunately, you cannot get the Erasmus+ program’s funding and must pay the tuition fees yourself.
If you are interested, please contact the International Office of the desired university and ask for the application procedure for Freemover.
We recommend the help of agencies such as IEC, Asia Exchange, College Contact, GoStralia etc.
You are responsible for your accommodation during the semester abroad. You can search in advance on the websites of the partner universities to find out whether the International Office offers housing. Unfortunately, the housing situation in Europe is quite tense, which is why most partner universities cannot offer housing.
You must research the courses offered on the websites of the partner universities. Do this to the best of your knowledge and belief and orientate yourself on the current course offer. Then save the information and contact your international representative to discuss the courses. Your department will help you with the recognition of the courses.
The Learning Agreement is an agreement between you, your department and the partner university, and is created digitally in Mobility Online after your nomination at the partner university. However, it is recommended to discuss the choice of course in advance with your international representative (see Contact Persons Department).
Inclusion is an important part of the funding programme. If the following category(s) applies to you, you can apply for a supplement of 250 euros per month. The application is made via Mobility Online after you have already been nominated at the partner university. You can apply for the special support if you are a first generation student or if you are employed in addition to your studies. You are also eligible for special support if you suffer from a chronic illness, have a degree of disability from 20, or want to take your child abroad. You can find more detailed information on special funding here.
Please contact AStA for the RMV ticket refund, here you will find all relevant information.
We will be happy to provide you with the required semester abroad certificate. Please send us the exact semester times of the partner university.
