Service and AdviceInformation Office for Study Abroad - Studying and Working Abroad

The International Relations Office provides students with information and advice on planning and completing a period or study or work abroad. 

Students planning to undertake such a project abroad, should speak to the Study Abroad Info Team. The team is made up of students who have first-hand experience of studying or working abroad. They will be able to answer any general questions you have, provide an overview of Heidelberg University’s exchange programme and other scholarship programmes, and can also provide guidance on putting together your applications.  

The Information Office for Study Abroad also offers comprehensive information on state branches of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), as well as DAAD scholarships. You’ll find catalogues and brochures from various universities outside Germany, as well as materials relating to language tests. The Office can also provide information on work placements or summer language courses. You’ll also be able to read reports written by offer students who spent time abroad. These contain practical tips and advice on planning your time abroad. 

If you’ve already decided where you’d like to spend your period abroad, the relevant regional coordinators will be able to provide you with specific information for your chosen destination e.g. the university system, application process and visa requirements.
