International exchange is a cornerstone of European Studies. Our students are exposed to diverse perspectives from the very first semester, given the international student body of European Studies. This allows for a constant exchange of ideas and to discover the political, economic and cultural diversity of Europe.

Exchange programmes with our partner universities and study trips are also an important aspect of European Studies at the Otto-von-Guericke University. As a student you will have many options to spend an exchange semester abroad. In our Bachelor's Programme, students spend their 5th semester abroad, with the guidance of the international office and of course, the EUS Team. Master’s students also have a choice to make use of the opportunity for an exchange semester at one of our partner universities. This can easily be integrated into the regular programme of studies if taken during the third semester. Moreover, for those studying at one of our partner universities, you can decide to spend your Erasmus semester with us in Magdeburg.

The entire world is open to our students through our European Studies partnerships and those of the university’s community at large. As seen in the map below, our partner universities are spread all across the globe, while the largest number of them are in the European continent.

The international mobility of our students can be supported through a wide range of full and partial scholarships as part of the Earsmus+ or DAAD programmes. This allows our students to spend time abroad independently of their personal wealth or background.
