The International Relations Department offers students information and advice on planning and realising their studies and internships abroad.

Information events for students on studying and internships in Australia and New Zealand

On April 26 at 11:30 a.m. or May 4 at 1 p.m., the International Relations Department will offer a heiCONF event on exchange opportunities with Australia and New Zealand. Information about the partner universities, the requirements as well as application modalities will be given. Afterwards there will be the possibility to ask individual questions, e.g. about financing. The event takes place via heiCONF, registration is not necessary.

Students planning to undertake such a project abroad, should speak to the Infocenter 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 Infocenter 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 Infocenter 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.
