The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) provides students interested in independently organising a study stay abroad with information on specific countries, scholarships, funding and much more!
Ruhr-Universität Bochum offers a lot of different exchange opportunities with partner universities world-wide. But perhaps you would much rather go to a completely different university or research institution? The world is your oyster!
When planning a self-organised study stay abroad, you can also take advantage of the help of a private agency specialised in study stays placements. Before you decide on an agency or organisation, it is best to contact several and check each offer carefully.
