You can potentially also write your final thesis abroad.

There are two options for doing this:

  • Either during a semester abroad at a host university
  • or at a foreign company.


  • Ask our partner universities or a company abroad if you can write your final thesis there with the support of supervisor. Alternatively, perhaps your professors might be able to suggest useful contacts.
  • Sometimes there are also specific vacancies or offers, which we then publish here.

You can apply for funding towards writing your final thesis abroad:

  • either Erasmus fundingif you will be writing your thesis at an Erasmus partner university or in a European company
  • or a PROMOS grant if you are going to write your thesis at a host university that isn’t covered by Erasmus, including outside Europe
  • or a grant from “hochschule international” if you don’t have sufficient financial means and aren’t receiving a PROMOS scholarship at the same time.

What should you do?

  • Register your final thesis in time (i.e. before you plan to go abroad) with Academic Registry;
  • Find out what regulations apply, as a final thesis cannot be recognised in the same straightforward way that modules or courses taken at foreign universities are;
  • Make sure that a professor at Kempten University of Applied Sciences is willing to supervise your thesis;
  • Get in touch with the International Office to discuss your plans and resolves any issues.
