The field of work is becoming increasingly international. That is why we think it is important that you as a student can gain experience abroad. Every year, more than a hundred students from the AHK go abroad to broaden their horizons.
There are various study and internship grants that you can apply for. However, these grants never fully cover the costs. In addition, the AHK has agreements with various foreign institutions for the exchange of students (and teachers). You can also look for institutions abroad yourself.
Continuing your studies after graduation
After graduating, you can apply for a scholarship for further study abroad. Motivated and talented students can apply for a scholarship at a number of institutions. You often have to arrange these scholarships during your graduation year. Advice: obtain information in time and read the terms and conditions of each fund carefully.
Each academy has an internationalisation contact person. You can contact the internationalisation coordinators with all your questions about studying abroad.
