Are to keen to get some experience abroad while you’re studying at Kempten University of Applied Sciences, but don’t wish to spend an entire semester at a foreign university?
No problem – there are many options for short study visits abroadthat you can incorporate sensibly into your degree programme. Short stays abroad also provide many valuable experiences that you can benefit from both academically and personally.
The foreign languages courses here at Kempten University of Applied Sciences. Sometimes, spending a few weeks taking an intensive language course in the country where it is spoken, preferably at a foreign university, can be a useful addition to your degree programme. For example, it’s an opportunity to catch up on, consolidate and advance your skills. Alternatively, you might want to try learning (or improve) a language that isn’t taught at Kempten University of Applied Sciences, but which might be useful for a semester abroad or later on in your career.
Funding tip: Language courses at universities (!) lasting at least three weeks are eligible for funding via the PROMOS scholarship programme run by Kempten University of Applied Sciences. Further information and the application form are available under Fundingwebsite.
