Semester Abroad

Mandatory Module B33

One semester abroad is a mandatory part of the Bachelor programme (preferably done in the fifth semester) and a highly recommended part of the Master programme (preferably done in the third semester). The ERM programme is offered in cooperation between the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg and partner universities, out of which one can be chosen for the semester abroad. The partner universities offer compatible classes, which can easily be recognised.

Each year in December/January there are informational lectures for those who want to go abroad in the following winter semester by the International office (in German) and by the ERM Administration in cooperation with the International office (in English).
