To complement your African studies course (Bachelor, Master) we recommend you study at least one semester at a University abroad. With some universities we have existing partnerships.

Before leaving for your studies abroad, go to your student advisor to sign a Learning Agreement between the Institute for African Studies and your host institution (ECTS-Learning Agreement). This is the condition for having ECTS-credit points gained abroad accredited at the University of Leipzig.

  • Your studies abroad can be partly financed via Erasmus+, Promos or Auslands-BaföG.
  • For further information see KISS Datenbank and the International Centre (AAA) of the University of Leipzig.
