while pursuing our M.Sc.

We understand the need for a global focus in education. With more than 550 university and other partner institutions worldwide, we have made it a priority to promote study abroad opportunities for our students in the European Union and around the world.

At Mathematics Münster, you can choose to spend a semester or year at one of our 13 Erasmus + partner universities in Europe within the framework of the Erasmus + programme. Erasmus + is a programme by the European union, which supports, among other things, student mobility in Europe. As an Erasmus+ student, you will benefit from a small scholarship, and, ideally, a good fit between your home university’s and your exchange university’s curriculum. Moreover, you won’t have to pay tuition fees at your exchange university. We also have Erasmus+ scholarships for internships at enterprises or other institutions in the Erasmus + area. Want to know more? Here you go.

Beside our Erasmus + exchange possibilities, you can also choose to spend some study time at one of the University of Münster’s worldwide partner universities. To finance a stay at one of our university wide partner institutions or at another university of your choice, you can apply for a PROMOS scholarship. Our PROMOS scholarships fund semester or shorter stays at universities, research internships or work internships as well as summer / winter schools worldwide. You can find more information here.
