The University of Erfurt maintains numerous cooperation agreements with foreign universities, so that our students have the opportunity to study at a university outside the Federal Republic of Germany. The Faculty of Political Science expressly encourages its students to take up this offer, because a stay abroad (just like interdisciplinary studies) opens up a view of solution strategies that otherwise often remain hidden. More than a third of our students take advantage of this offer at least once during their studies. In the B.A. in Political Science, we particularly recommend the fifth and sixth semesters for a half-year or one-year study abroad. In preparation for this, students have the opportunity to take a variety of language courses free of charge at the Language Centre of the University of Erfurt.
