Interdisciplinary Exchange

Study Abroad 2

University-Wide Exchange

In addition to numerous international university partnerships with individual faculties, institutes and chairs, Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is also involved in various university-wide, central and thus interdisciplinary higher education partnerships. RUB’s International Office is the best contact point for these partnerships, particularly concerning the application and selection of students for places at those foreign universities. Students studying abroad via an exchange programme will be exempt from all tuition fees at the host institution. They may also apply for additional scholarships and grants. Applications can be submitted by mid-December 2016 or mid-January 2017 (depending on the exchange programme) for the next academic year. Please refer to the link at the end of this page ("Application Documents") for further information.
