Please note that the possibility to study abroad during the winter semester at one of the partner universities is currently being strongly influenced by the developments of the corona crisis. Together with the subject coordinators we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. A final decision can only be made at a later date when the development of the pandemic has become clearer.

What are the benefits of a study abroad with STUDEXA?

  • Information and consultation is available directly at the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg.
  • Tuition fees at the respective target universities are waived.
  • The International Relations Office takes care of most of the organizational aspects of the study abroad.
  • Host universities and the BTU make agreements prior to studies abroad to ensure that study performances will be recognized at the BTU.
  • The provision of organisation and support to exchange students is guaranteed by host  universities.

As a STUDEXA student studying abroad, you are an ambassador of the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg. Therefore, you should take every available opportunity to advertise the programme at your host university. Only when we have students coming to us from partner universities may we offer placements abroad to BTU students.
