Semester Abroad

Students enrolled in Master course „Scientific Computing“ are encouraged to study for a semester abroad.

University of Heidelberg is offering different programs to apply for student exchange all over the world. Programs vary from language courses during semester breaks to exchange programs within study course programs as well as interns or examinations. For general information please visit the webpage of Heidelberg University and at the Infocenter for Study and Internship abroad.
During your studies in Scientific Computing we recommend to study abroad during your 3rd semester. Within this semester you have already got to know Heidelberg University and the program itself, but you have not yet started your Master Thesis.

There are three main options for your semester abroad:

Selected partner institutions of the IWR at Heidelberg University are:

  • Johannes Kepler University, Austria
    This University is also enclosed within the ERASMUS+ Mobility Program of Heidelberg University.
  • University of Luxemburg, Luxemburg
  • University of Delhi, Delhi
  • Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi
  • Partner Institutions of the SOKRATES/ERASMUS program coordinated by the Mathematics Department of Heidelberg University

For a first step try to figure out if you want to study on your own or within a mobility program. Choose where you want to study regarding your research interests and language proficiency. Mobility programs are offered by Heidelberg University. For further details and general questions on exchange programs please visit the foreign office of Heidelberg University.
