Studies abroad


We are very interested in enabling our students to go abroad during their studies. When staying abroad, you gain important social, cultural, linguistic and intellectual experience. These experiences are a long-lasting enrichment of your private and professional life.

We are happy to answer your questions concerning contents and accreditation of courses offered by our department. For organizational questions and information please see the Outgoing program of RWTH Aachen University.
