Check in advance with those responsible in your department whether the credits (ECTS) earned there can be recognized as part of your studies.


Participation in Blended Intensive Programs (BIP) can be funded via the Erasmus program. All other formats are eligible for funding via the SHOSTA program.

Language courses abroad offer an excellent opportunity to learn a new language or improve your existing knowledge.


Tips for finding a suitable language school can be found on the DAAD website and here.


If ECTS are awarded for the course, these can be recognized under certain circumstances. Please contact the examination office of your department in advance.

Study trips abroad are intended not only to impart subject-related knowledge, but also to provide an insight into the host country and promote international encounters with students and academics.

Study trips are organized and offered by the departments. Applications are made directly to the department. Information can be found in the course catalog, for example.

As this is a regular course offered by the University of Kassel, the ECTS credits earned are recognized.

The program managers in the department can apply for group funding via the PROMOS program. An individual application is not possible.
