Not much speaks against a study stay in another country. Of course it has to be financed. But you do not need to be concerned about a study stay abroad necessarily prolonging the overall duration of your studies because the system of credit transfers allows recognition of your achievements. However, good organisation of your study stay is essential. One way to find out what to expect is by reading the testimonials of previous exchange students. In addition the International Office of the University and the Internationalisation Office of the Faculty are there to assist you at every step of your study exchange, if required.
