The different subjects in the field of Human Sciences and Education are characterised by the fact that you will work with many different people in your future careers, especially people with international life stories. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to hone your intercultural competences, gain new experiences and develop new ideas.

Refreshing and Deepening Language Skills at an Early Stage

You can gain further knowledge or deepen your foreign language skills right from the very beginning of your studies. You can choose your courses from the range of courses offered by the Language Centre, these being mainly the courses which are open to students of all faculties (HaF). In some cases you can obtain credits for these courses in the mandatory elective fields of your degree programme.


„Internationalisation at Home“

Our instructors cooperate with institutions all over the world. Many of them have conducted research projects and gained teaching experience at universities abroad, an experience which they can now use to good effect in their lectures at the University of Bamberg. Moreover do the many international students who come to Bamberg every year enrich university life through their international perspective and experience.


Studying Abroad

All degree programmes in Human Sciences and Education offer you the opportunity to study abroad. The University of Bamberg has established a broad network of international partner universities with which we have signed student exchange programme agreements. However, it is also possible to study abroad at other universities if you have or would like to establish your own contacts. The Erasmus Departmental Coordinator will support you in all questions concerning the time before and after your studies abroad. By signing „Learning Agreements“, you will ensure in advance to receive recognition for courses successfully completed abroad, so that the duration of your studies will not be extended. Consult your subject-specific advisors well in time in order to discuss which courses to take during your studies abroad in the fifth semester, so that these courses will be recognised in the degree programme.
