There are many reasons to spend a semester of your studies abroad. Globalization is changing almost all areas of the economy, and thus also the demands on current and future employees in companies. Multlingualism, initial international experiences as a result of study abroad or internships abroad, and a distinct ability to communicate can be crucial hiring criteria for university graduates.
Courses completed abroad contain content, that reflect other disciplinary focuses and other countries' perspectives. Students also learn methodical-pedagogical approaches. Both greatly broaden students' horizons within the field. Credit that are recognized at RWTH Aachen can be acquired in various exchange programs.
