A semester abroad often entails additional financial burdens. Therefore, it is important that you look for suitable funding opportunities in good time. Scholarships are often awarded well in advance of the stay abroad, so deal with funding opportunities as early as possible. Depending on the scholarship, it may make sense to do so as early as 1.5 years before your desired stay. For information on funding for internships abroad, Erasmus+ study exchange and stays for teaching practice abroad, please speak with the respective contact persons there.
