This opportunity is only offered to students of the study programs BWL tQ and WI. Those students can apply to the partner universities of the department of their technical qualification. Therefore you need a recommendation letter of the international office Business studies and Economics.

To get the recommendation letter please send us your "Notenauszug mit Fehlversuchen" to application_outgoer(at)

Funding Opportunities

The Erasmus+ Program

Since fall 2014, the new EU program Erasmus+ is taking the role of the former Lifelong Learning Erasmus program (2007-2013) that has been one of the success stories of the European Union. Since 1987, the program has promoted the cross-border mobility of students for studying or doing an internship in another European country. Usually all students that have obtained an exchange place in one of the European Erasmus exchange programs of the University of Kaiserslautern are eligible for Erasmus funding.



PROMOS Scholarships

The DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst/ German Academic Exchange Service) has created a  program called PROMOS (Programm zur Steigerung der Mobilität von deutschen Studierenden) designed to support German students during short academic stays as well as for studying or working abroad. 



BAföG Abroad

BAföG (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz) financial aid for a study abroad is not restricted to students who already receive BAföG for their studies in Germany. Because of the higher rates for studying abroad, students who normally are above the threshold for BAföG due to their parents' income could possibly be funded by BAföG for a study abroad. Within the framework of  BAföG Abroad, tuition fees of up to € 4.600 per year of study are reimbursed. In addition, students may apply for travel expenses and a health insurance allowance as well as a foreign allowance when staying outside of the EU. Funding of stays abroad does not need to be paid back.




After the mobility

Hand in the request for validation to the exchange coordinator within two months after having received your transcript of records/certificate from the university abroad.


Therefore the following documents are required:

  • Letter of Appearance (Partner University)


The exchange coordinator hands on your request to the examination board, which finally decides about the acknowledgement of your academic achievement.
