Study abroad

For many students, studying abroad is the highlight of their degree course. Are you planning to spend one or two terms at a foreign university or complete a language course abroad? We recommend that you contact the institution early and, if relevant, submit a scholarship application.

Representatives of the individual departments at the IOA can offer you advice. You can find out more about studying in your specialist research region, at our partner universities or scholarship opportunities by referring to the website of your own department under “Study abroad”.

The IOA also participates in the Erasmus Programme for exchange students in Europe.

Bonn University also runs a direct exchange programme with numerous international as well as Asian universities, some of which also award scholarships. 

For further information about individual partner universities of Bonn University, please click here to access the relevant database.

Students can also apply at any time for a German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) scholarship. The DAAD offers a wide range of scholarships for students at different stages of their academic studies.

If you have any further questions about support or access to language courses or longer study periods abroad, please contact the professors and academics at your department who will be happy to assist.
