Short Periods of Stay Abroad

As an alternative to conventional periods of stay abroad, short-term stays are becoming increasingly popular. The broad range of language and subject-specific courses at institutions abroad provide you with the opportunity to advance your subject knowledge, but also to gain credit points (ECTS) that can be recognised in Greifswald. Find out more about the various options here. The International Office will be glad to provide you with information about funding opportunities.

Subject Courses and Summer Schools Abroad

A large number of universities all over the world provide subject-specific courses during the non-teaching period. For example, you can take part in a summer or winter school and advance your subject knowledge in an international group of students, and extend your intercultural competencies. Register for a summer school at one of our partner universities.

Find further summer schools in Europe here: Summer Schools in Europe.eu.


Language Courses

Lots of universities abroad provide language courses. This not only makes it possible for you to improve your language skills in the corresponding country, but also to get to know the foreign university. Use the DAAD’s course database [de] to find a suitable language course.


Funding

The DAAD’s PROMOS Programme[de] provides a one-off 500-euro grant for course fees to students and doctoral candidates who organise their own short periods of stay abroad lasting between five days and four months and taking place at state-run universities all over the world.

The DAAD funds participation at summer schools in eastern Europe via the Go East Programme[de].
