Studying abroad is not only the best way to get to know other countries, ideas, languages and cultures, but is also becoming increasingly important as an academic and professional success factor. During your studies of physics at the University of Bayreuth you have many opportunities for a stay abroad. Within the framework of the DAAD programs ERASMUS and PROMOS, students can, for example, study for a period of one semester or more at a foreign university. Current information on these and other offers can also be found on the information pages of the International Office at the University of Bayreuth.
A particularly suitable period for a study-related stay abroad is the early phase of the master's program, since you can specifically build on an already acquired foundation of physical knowledge. In most cases, many of the study achievements abroad can be recognized by the responsible examination board for the further study of physics in Bayreuth.
Funding for research stays abroad is often possible in other ways as well: students of the Biological Physics study program in the Elite Network of Bavaria, for example, can receive funding for several weeks of project work in an international partner laboratory. In addition, many working groups can facilitate a project-related stay abroad during the master's thesis or doctorate phase from research funding.
