Informationen rund um Ihren Studienverlauf

Here you will find detailed information on selected topics.

Please also refer to the pages of the Student Services.

Feedback

What does "feedback" mean?
Feedback is the registration for further studies. A new re-registration must be made for each semester and a SEPA mandate for the debit of the student union fee must be confirmed. Otherwise, you will be de-registered at the end of the semester.

What is the student union fee?
Currently 42,- Euro have to be paid (02/2019).

Period of re-registration:
see schedule of the respective semester
→ Login to the HRZ portal (e.g. via "Login" on the homepage homepage)
→ Menu Item "Study"
→ MyPRIMUSS
→ Study matters
→ Feedback
→ Confirmation of the SEPA mandate for the direct debit of the student union fee or, if applicable, new creation/change via "SEPA Mandate Administration".
→ Check "I want to report back."
→ Click on the "Feedback" button.
⇒ The message "You have reported back" appears.

Who has to confirm?
Every student has to re-register if he/she wants to stay enrolled. The re-registration must also be made if the semester in question is a practical semester or if it is a vacation semester. You must also be enrolled and thus re-registered in the period between the submission of your thesis and the determination of your degree.
If it is still unclear in the re-registration period whether exmatriculation will take place ex officio before the beginning of the semester (e.g. completion of studies, exmatriculation under examination law), please re-register as a precaution. If you then do not have to pay any fees, any overpayments will automatically be refunded. Please do not arrange for a return debit to be made to your bank. As a rule, the bank charges fees for this, which are then to be borne by you.

What is the connection between re-registration and health insurance?
The re-registration for the next semester must be refused if there is no proof of health insurance. Therefore, please note that if you change your health insurance provider, you must present a certificate of the new health insurance company.  

Reimbursement
If the fee is not required (e.g. due to exmatriculation before the start of the semester) and the Studentenwerk fee has already been deducted, it will automatically be refunded to the direct debit account after the start of the semester. Please do not arrange for a return debit to be made to your bank. As a rule, the bank will charge fees, which are then to be borne by you.

Insurances

Health insurance

If there are any changes in your health insurance, you must inform the student service immediately. Otherwise you may not be able to re-register or continue your studies.

An insurance certificate must also be submitted again if you have been exmatriculated by the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences and are re-enrolling for the next semester, e.g. in another course of study.

 

Statutory accident insurance protection

Information is available at https://www.kuvb.de/aktuelles/

 

Liability insurance

Liability for damages

The Ansbach University of Applied Sciences accepts no liability for students, guest students or diploma students ... damage caused. For damages to the property of the university caused by this group of persons (in particular also in laboratories, television studios, sound studios etc.), the person causing the damage must pay the university damages.

An automatic liability insurance does not exist!

Students are therefore strongly advised to take out private liability insurance. Usually there is also insurance via the parents. In the case of laboratory activities, etc., it may be necessary to clarify with the private liability insurance whether this covers damage, for example, in the laboratory, television studio, recording studio and, if applicable, damage to borrowed items. Otherwise a special liability insurance should be taken out.

International student identity card

The Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg is responsible for issuing an international student ID card for students at Ansbach University.

Further information can be found here (German).

Leave of absence

Leave of absence is regulated in the statutes on matriculation, re-registration and exmatriculation procedures.


If you wish to be exempted from the obligation to study properly (leave of absence), you must apply in due form and time.

Form of the application:
The application for leave of absence must be submitted in writing using the application form of the Student Services. The application must state the reason for the leave of absence in accordance with section 4. If necessary, the application must be accompanied by relevant evidence; the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences can request such evidence if necessary.

Deadlines:
The application for leave of absence must be submitted no later than one month after the beginning of the semester; if the reason for leave of absence occurs after this date and was not foreseeable, the application can be submitted by 25 January for the winter semester or by 10 July for the summer semester. Leave of absence can only be applied for for one semester. A subsequent leave of absence for already completed semesters is excluded.

Reasons:
The application for leave of absence has to be approved if there are important reasons that hinder the study and question a timely completion. Such reasons exist in particular if

  • circumstances exist which entitle a student to protection periods in accordance with the Act on the Protection of the Working Mother (Maternity Protection Act) or to parental leave as well as periods of care for a close relative (Nursing Period Act),
  • a medical certificate (possibly from an official doctor) certifies that the student cannot study properly in the semester in question due to illness,
  • the student is studying at a university abroad,
  • the student has completed a voluntary internship,
  • the student is performing a voluntary service.

Economic reasons are generally not recognised.

Duration:
As a rule, students are granted leave of absence for a maximum of two semesters. Exceptions are periods of maternity leave, nursing leave and parental leave.

Please note that during a leave of absence

  • no study and examination achievements can be achieved within the framework of an initial placement at the university at which the leave of absence was granted,
  • Requests for extension of the repetition period must be submitted separately from the request for leave of absence.
  • the maternity protection period and parental leave allow the completion of academic studies and the taking of examinations.

BAföG recipients and other scholarship holders should contact the Studentenwerk or the respective scholarship provider in advance. If child benefit is still granted for the person on leave, the child benefit fund should be consulted before applying.

Foreign students who are not nationals of member states of the European Union should discuss their legal consequences with the responsible foreigners authority prior to applying for a leave of absence.


If you have any questions, please contact your contact person at the Student Services.

Change of name or address

If your address has changed, please update it immediately in the intranet/account/data adaptation. A written notification to the Student Services is not necessary.

If your name or nationality has changed, you must submit an official document.

  • If you are attending the student service in person, you must present the original together with the form.
  • If you report the change in writing using the form, you must enclose a certified copy of the document.

The student service makes the changes in the system.

Change of degree programme or change of university

In principle, admissions to higher semesters are only possible in all Bachelor's degree programmes with restricted admissions at the university if

  • Study places have been returned or have become vacant for other reasons (free capacities);
  • a corresponding offer is available for the semester applied for;
  • the amount of academic and examination achievements achieved so far can be recognised to the extent that the ECTS achieved is at
    most 20 points below the point limit normally attainable for the semester applied for (30 ECTS per semester).

The number of recognised ECTS must therefore be as follows for the respective semester:

  • 2nd semester: min. 21 ECTS
  • 3rd semester: min. 40 ECTS
  • 4th semester: min. 70 ECTS
  • 5th semester: min. 100 ECTS
  • 6th semester: min. 130 ECTS
  • 7th semester: min. 160 ECTS

Example:
You are applying for the 3rd semester. You will be recognized less than 40 ECTS --> No admission!

The recognition of examination achievements with the corresponding ECTS takes place according to the current study and examination regulations of the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences for the corresponding course of studies.


Application deadlines

An application for entry into a higher semester is possible at the following times:

  • for the summer semester: 01.12. - 15.01.
  • for the winter semester: 02.05. - 15.07.

These are cut-off periods!


Application possibilities for the summer semester 2020

For the summer semester 2020, places are available in the following restricted degree programmes:

For the 2nd semester:
Industrial Engineering
business informatics
Intercultural Management

For the fourth semester:

BAföG

Next appointment: The next date for BAföG consultation will be announced here as soon as it is fixed.

Responsibility

The Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg (office Erlangen) is responsible for the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences.

Information on BAföG can be found here: Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg.

All forms and general information can also be found on the website of the Federal Ministry of Education and the Arts.

Proof of performance

From the 5th semester onwards, educational support is only provided from the time when the student submits a certificate from the university (Form 5: Leistungsbescheinigung nach § 48 BAföG). This can only be issued by the Student Service after the grades from the 4th semester have been received. This certifies that the student has performed the usual services by the end of the respective semester if the course of study is in order.

The form 5: Leistungsbescheinigung nach § 48 BAföG is available in paper form from the Student Service or online from the Studentenwerk.

You enter the header data and your grant number and submit the completed form to the Student Service, throw it into the post box or send it by post.

Once the certificate has been processed by the Student Service, it will be sent directly to the Studentenwerk Erlangen-Nürnberg.

Your certificate of achievement will be assessed positively if you have achieved 100% of the examination results (30 ECTS points per semester), i.e. 120 ECTS points after 4 semesters.

Deviating from this, your certificate will also be assessed positively if you have achieved at least 85 ECTS points at the end of the fourth semester - this is the maximum lower limit.

If you need the certificate of achievement for a subject semester other than the end of the 4th semester, it can be issued positively if you have received it by the end of the 4th semester.

  • fifth semester at least 105 ECTS points
  • sixth semester at least 125 ECTS points

have achieved.

If your performance certificate has to be assessed negatively, no BAföG will initially be paid, but you have the option of issuing a new performance certificate in accordance with § 48 BAföG.

Continued support can be assessed positively if you have completed your studies by the end of the

  • fifth semester at least 105 ECTS points
  • sixth semester at least 125 ECTS points

have achieved.

BAföG Repayment

Important information on the repayment obligation and the BAföG partial waiver can be found here, for example:

Internetseiten des Bundesverwaltungsamtes

Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung

Loan Fund of Bayerische Studentenwerke e.V.

The Darlehenskasse der Bayerischen Studentenwerke e.V. grants long-term, low-interest loans to needy students to help them prepare for their exams (e.g. when BAföG benefits are no longer available) and to enable them to successfully complete their studies.

Exmatriculation

With the exmatriculation, the student status at the university is terminated.

The exmatriculation regulations are regulated in the BayHSchG, in the statutes on the matriculation, re-registration and exmatriculation procedure and the APO.

Exmatriculation on application:

Upon application, you can withdraw from your studies at the university at any time, even during the current semester.

Exmatriculation is only possible for the future, at the earliest on the day on which the application for exmatriculation is received by the university.

    Exmatriculation must be applied for using a form. Please state the reason for exmatriculation.
    Submit the application to the Student Service.
    You may have to return your Campuscard or other documents.

>>>APPLICATION FOR EXMATRICULATION<<<

Exmatriculation ex officio:

Exmatriculation takes place automatically if, in particular, the following reasons exist:

    The payment of due fees and contributions is not proven in the re-registration.
    The health insurance certificate to be submitted for the re-registration is not submitted due to one's own fault.
    A required examination will definitely not be passed.
    Reasons that stand in the way of proper study (e.g. failure to achieve ECTS points, limits; exceeding the maximum number of examination attempts - see also "All about examinations").
    Abuse of matriculation or re-registration.
    Other reasons which do not permit continued membership at the university (e.g. culpable causing of considerable damage to the university).

Contact point, advice and coaching for dropouts

You have doubts about your studies and are about to decide to finish your studies? You will find the contact points on the page of the General Student Advisory Service.

Of course, the General Student Advisory Service is also available for advice.

Pregnant student

Information on leave of absence can be found above.

The provisions of the Maternity Protection Act (MuSchG) also apply to female students during pregnancy, childbirth and lactation if the university prescribes the place, time and course of the training event or if female students complete a mandatory internship as part of their university education (§§ 1 Para. 2 Sentence 2 No. 8, 2 Para. 1 Sentence 2 No. 8 MuSchG).

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding during your studies, you should inform the university of this in accordance with § 15 Para. 1 MuSchG.

Please contact the Student Service for further information.

During the practical semester, you should also notify the internship office as an employer within the meaning of the Maternity Protection Act (Mutterschutzgesetz). For data protection reasons, the notification to the internship office cannot be made by the university, but only by yourself.

After your notification of pregnancy or breastfeeding, the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences or your internship placement can take any protective measures you may need, depending on the course of study.

In addition, the maternity protection periods under § 3 MuSchG also apply to female students. As of 01.01.2018, these women are thus exempted by law from their obligation to study properly (e.g. participation in examinations) for a period of six weeks before to eight (in special cases twelve) weeks after delivery. However, affected female students can waive the statutory protection before and/or after childbirth by making an explicit request to the university, and this declaration can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

For further information, please contact the Student Service.

All about examinations

Crediting of competences

Recognition of competences (learning objectives) means that, upon application and under certain conditions, examination achievements already achieved in the higher education sector, but also outside the higher education sector, e.g. advanced training examinations of the IHK or HWK, can be counted towards module or module part examinations.

Important note: Please note that according to the APO, applications must be submitted by the end of the semester at which enrolment took place at the latest (WS until 14.03. and SS until 30.09.).

This deadline applies exclusively to credits for competences acquired before matriculation in the current degree programme.

Before submitting your application, you should compare your previous examination achievements with the respective module description (LSF) for which you wish to apply for crediting. In the case of higher education institutions, this should be done on the basis of the module description; in the case of non-university institutions, it should be done on the basis of an official description of the content and scope.

If you have any questions regarding content, please first contact the relevant academic advisor for your degree programme. You will find the contact details for your degree programme.

In the case of questions relating to examination law relating to credits, please contact the responsible student service clerk.

In particular, please make sure that you enclose the relevant documents as proof:

  • Original confirmation of grades
  • Module description of the facility at which the service was performed

Important note: An already recognised module or module part examination can no longer be cancelled after the announcement of the crediting; the announcement is made via the online grading portal of the University of Applied Sciences Ansbach.

>>>TO THE APPLICATION (GERMAN)<<<


Additional modules (voluntary examinations)

Students can take voluntary examinations (additional modules) on which passing the Bachelor's or Master's examination does not depend.

After passing the examination, additional modules cannot be subsequently recognised on examination papers on which the passing of the Bachelor's or Master's examination depends.

There is no entitlement to take an additional module that is part of the curriculum of a degree programme as a module or partial module.

Important note: If you would like to take an additional module and at the end of the module you will have to take an examination, the following steps must be observed:

  • Clarify with the professors or lecturers responsible for the courses to what extent capacities are available.
  • The application must be filled in completely and in due time within the examination registration period (see schedule).
  • The application will be processed by the system no later than 2 weeks after the last day of the examination registration period. Until then, please refrain from further inquiries. Once the application has been booked, the student must create the updated PDF of the registered services and check it for correctness.
  • Additional modules are not subject to the examination regulations, as these are provided voluntarily. If an examination performance of an additional module is not passed, it does not have to be repeated.
  • At the end of your studies you will receive a separate certificate for your additional modules.

>>>TO THE FORM (GERMAN)<<<


Withdrawal from examinations / request for refusal of mark 5

In the event that you are unable to take an examination or have to cancel it, this will initially result in you being awarded grade 5.

You can apply for a non-rating of Grade 5 if there are reasons for which you are not responsible.

The submission of the certificate, possibly in connection with an official medical opinion, alone is not sufficient! In addition, you must apply for a non-rating of 5. Please use the form provided by the Student Services! Please note that a form must be used for each individual module or module part examination.

The application and the evidence must be

  • immediately, but no later than one week after the end of the examination period
  • in the Student Services
  • in the original

must be submitted.

Please note that a form must be used for each individual module or module part examination.

>>>TO THE APPLICATION (GERMAN)<<<


Resignation due to illness

Inability to examine is a question of law

According to the established case law of the Federal Administrative Court, it is a question of law whether an employee is incapable of examination, i.e. the decision on this is not made by the doctor, as is the case with an employee, but by the competent examination authority. At Ansbach University of Applied Sciences, these decisions are made by the relevant examination boards. Legal basis: RaPO i.V.m. APO

Data protection is not violated either, since pursuant to Art. 18 BayDSG the transfer of personal data to other public bodies is permissible if it is necessary for the performance of the tasks within the competence of the receiving body.

Non-appearance on the day of the examination

  • If a student does not appear for an examination for health reasons, the illness is to be made plausible immediately.
  • Due to their duty to cooperate, students are generally obliged to disclose their complaints in order to determine the inability to take an examination and, if necessary, to partially release the attending physician from the duty of confidentiality. This does not mean that the doctor must disclose the diagnosis as such, but the physical or psychological effects caused by the illness.
  • If you fall ill on the day of the examination and do not appear, the examination must always take place on the day of the examination. A certificate based on a later examination date - i.e. after the examination day - cannot be accepted.
  • If you are already ill before the examination day, the period certified by the doctor must include the examination day.
  • In the case of in-patient hospitalisation, a certificate is generally not required - in the case of recurrence (see below), no official medical opinion is required. In this case, please submit proof of inpatient treatment. Here, too, you must note that this certificate for a hospital stay before the examination includes the examination day.

Abortion of the examination during the examination performance

  • The same provisions apply to the cancellation of an examination due to illness of an already started examination performance as to the cancellation of an examination (non-appearance on the day of the examination) - also in connection with a possibly necessary official medical opinion!
  • If the examination is aborted, the examination supervisor must be handed over the examination performance worked on until the abortion and it must be pointed out that the examination is aborted for health reasons. This is the only way to ensure that an appropriate note is made in the examination protocol. Otherwise, the examination will be deemed to have been completed!
  • You must go to the doctor immediately - i.e. on the day of the examination; if necessary afterwards in addition to the official doctor. If you are unable to reach a family doctor, you must contact a doctor on call or a hospital.
  • The examination commissions can reject applications for refusal of the grade 5 for the reasons mentioned above, even if a certificate or an additional official medical opinion certifies an illness which has not necessarily led acutely to limited examination ability, i.e. an abortion of the examination.

Content requirements for a certificate

  • A certificate of incapacity for work ("yellow certificate") is not a certificate and is therefore by no means sufficient for a resignation due to illness!
  • Please use the certificate provided by the university.
  • The medical certificate must describe the illness-related and at the same time examination-relevant disturbances (symptoms) so concretely and comprehensibly that the responsible examination commission can decide whether there was a considerable restriction of the ability to perform due to the proven illness on the examination day and thus actually an inability to take the examination.
  • The physician is entitled to provide more detailed information on the type and extent of the diagnosed illness if the patient releases him from his duty of confidentiality - however, a diagnosis is not absolutely necessary.  However, it is necessary for the medical certificate to state the circumstances which, from a medical point of view, prevent the candidate from undergoing the test (e.g. necessary bed rest, infection, etc.).
  • See also "Non-appearance on examination day".

Withdrawal for other reasons

  • If students do not appear for an examination for other reasons, there must be reasons for which the students themselves are not responsible.
  • These reasons must be made credible! An application without proof has no prospect of successful approval.  

Official medical opinion

If a student withdraws again from the same module examination due to illness, an official medical opinion must be submitted in addition to the medical certificate.

  • Please note that the presentation to the official doctor requires the presentation of the certificate (e.g. from the family doctor) for the official medical opinion to be drawn up.
  • Please make an appointment with the health authorities in advance by telephone.
  • In case you go to the official doctor in Ansbach, here are the contact details:

>>>TO THE BULLETIN<<<


Audit periods

The deadlines listed here refer to students in Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes.

First deadline for enrolment

If the standard period of study is exceeded by more than two semesters, all examinations that have not yet been taken are considered failed for the first time.

Basic and Orientation Examination(s)

These examination(s) are specified in the annex to the respective study and examination regulations and must be taken for the first time by the end of the second semester at the latest.

Periods for repetition

Failed examinations must be repeated. Please note the following deadlines:

Deadline for the 1st repetition examination (second attempt) = 1 semester
Deadline for the 2nd repeat examination (third attempt) = 2 semesters

A 3rd test repeat (fourth test) is not possible.

Maximum number of repeat tests

  • You can take a maximum of three third exam attempts. This means that you may not pass a second test attempt more than three times. Failure to pass a fourth second attempt will result in exmatriculation.

Bachelor's/Master's thesis

A Bachelor's/Master's thesis can only be repeated once. The second attempt must be registered within 6 months of the announcement of the non-existence.

Consequences of missed deadline

If you fail to comply with a deadline, you will be officially awarded the grade "insufficient" for the attempt in question. This has the consequence that there are further repetition periods. It can also lead to a final failure to pass an examination and thus to exmatriculation.

Please note that the deadlines for taking repeat examinations are generally not interrupted by a leave of absence or exmatriculation.

Extension of the repetition/first-subscription period

If you are unable to meet a deadline for reasons for which you are not responsible, you may apply for an extension of the deadline.

<<<TO THE FORM (GERMAN)<<<


ECTS points Limits

  • Students who are enrolled in an undergraduate Bachelor's programme with a standard period of study of seven semesters will be exmatriculated if they are enrolled at the end of the
  • 2. semester have achieved less than 21 ECTS points,
  • 3. semester have achieved less than 41 ECTS points,
  • 4. semester have achieved less than 66 ECTS points.

Application for suspension of exmatriculation

If serious reasons arise in the semester in question which are not attributable to the student and for which participation in module examinations was not possible, e.g. resignation due to illness, the suspension of exmatriculation can be applied for at the responsible examination board.

Deadline

The complete application must be received by the Student Service no later than two weeks after the examination period.

Form (manner)

You create an informal cover letter with reasons and, if necessary, proof. As the original application must be signed, an e-mail is not sufficient. The application will be submitted to the Student Service.


Examination registration and deregistration

In this context, you should definitely take note of the information under Withdrawal of examinations and Application for refusal of Grade 5!

Please be sure to note the periods of time shown in the schedule, which are deadlines. Only in particularly justified cases can an application for subsequent examination registration or examination deregistration be approved here. Please also pay attention to the deadlines for filing an application (APO).

The online examination registration or deregistration is carried out via myPrimuss.

Important information:

  • There is no automatic registration for repeat exams!!!
  • At the end of the online registration and deregistration process, document your registered examinations (create PDF)!

If you have any questions, please contact your responsible clerk, who can be found at the bottom of the page for your degree programme under Persons.


Organizational aspects of audits

Here you will find the university's public announcement on the Performance of examinations (German).

The colleagues of the Student Services provide the respective lists of participants for all courses of study, which simultaneously represent the room lists, in the IT Service Portal under the menu item Study, at the latest in the evening before each examination.

What's new?

The examination supervisors are required to ask all candidates present before the start of the examination whether they are fit for examination. The fact of the questioning is to be documented with the result in the minutes. The examination supervisors will also inform those present that with the signature on the seat and signature list, the written declaration on the examination ability based on the declaration contained is also made.

What does this mean?

As all students should be aware, an examination is considered to have taken place when entering the examination room and signing the so-called seat and signature list. For student research projects, the acceptance of the topic is regarded as the start of the examination!

If an examination should be aborted for health reasons, the examination commission responsible for deciding on the application for a non-rating of 5 in conjunction with the certificate and any additional official medical opinion must determine the extent to which a health restriction that actually occurred acutely has occurred or the declaration of examination eligibility has led to the examination participant being aware of the health restriction in advance and therefore taking the examination on the basis of his/her own assessment of his/her health examination eligibility.

Further information can be found under Withdrawal from examinations.

Why the explanation to the examination ability?

It applies the attention of the equality requirement, i.e. also in examination matters no unequal treatment may take place. Certain circumstances are to be excluded here as the reason for preferences and disadvantages of test subjects. An unequal treatment would arise, for example, if someone would gain an advantage by first taking the examination, taking note of the contents of the examination and then aborting the examination in order to take it up in the next examination period with more knowledge than the other examinees.


Notification and announcement of grades

All students are notified of their grades online via the PRIMUSS.

The non-binding online notification of grades takes place when the examiners enter the grades, subject to the grades being determined by the responsible examination board.

The examination results according to RaPO are usually determined at the end of the lecture-free period.

In the case of a failed examination, i.e. with the result "insufficient" or grade 5, you will not receive a written notice. You will find the corresponding legal remedy instructions in myPRIMUSS.

Important note on repeat examinations:

There is no automatic registration for repeat examinations. You must re-register for this. In this context, please note the respective repetition period according to RaPO.


Examination schedules and lists of participants

The examination period is announced to the public via the Internet on the basis of the semester-related schedule.

The public announcement of the place and time of the examinations, the appointed examiners and the approved auxiliary and working materials takes place as a rule four weeks, but at the latest two weeks before the first day of the examination period on the basis of the current examination schedule online.

The examination schedules and lists of participants for the current examination period are published in the IT Service Portal under the menu item Study!

Please inform yourself regularly about the current status!

Important note:
If you have registered the examination performance of a module, especially languages, from another study programme, please refer to the examination plan of the respective study programme.

Please also note the information under Organisational aspects of examinations.


compensation for disadvantages

If you wish to claim compensation for disadvantages in examination performances, you must submit an informal application to the responsible examination board in good time - as a rule during the registration period for the examination performances.

The informal application

  • must be accompanied by a current, qualified, medical certificate showing the disadvantage.
  • A doctor's recommendation should be attached as to how the disadvantage can be compensated for.

The application will be submitted to the Student Service.

If a disadvantage occurs at short notice, please contact your responsible clerk in the Student Service immediately.

Study and internship abroad
Study abroad

A study visit or a job-related internship abroad has become a requirement for most management positions. Intercultural skills and business fluency are best acquired during a longer stay abroad. A second foreign language besides English is becoming increasingly important for future professional careers.

According to a study by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), employers nowadays attach greater importance to international experience than to short study periods. The Ansbach University of Applied Sciences therefore advises students to make use of the opportunities offered during their studies, either as a semester at a partner university or as a study-related internship with an international company.

A study semester or year abroad not only expands the professional horizon by an international component, but also strengthens and expands the knowledge of foreign languages and contributes to the acquisition of intercultural competences. This not least serves to improve career prospects. The recognition of examinations taken abroad for studies at home prevents unnecessary extensions of the duration of studies.

Study abroad as a "Free Mover

In principle, students can complete a guest semester at any foreign university of their choice. However, you should inform yourself in advance about the costs involved and discuss the recognition of the semester abroad with the lecturers at your home university.

Country information and a database for searching for a suitable host university are best found at www.daad.de/ausland/de .

In addition, numerous agencies offer the placement of study places at foreign universities.

Study abroad at a partner university

Studying at a partner university has the advantage that the application procedure is simplified, the International Office has fixed contact persons and the tuition fees are clearly fixed in advance and often even reduced for students from Ansbach.

Studying as part of the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission also has the advantage that no fees are charged at all at the partner universities and that students at Ansbach University receive a mobility grant.

Planning your study stay abroad

It is advisable to think about preparing for a semester abroad at the beginning of your studies. However, you should come to the International Office at least one year before your planned stay for advice. The International Office also regularly offers country- and programme-specific information events, which are open to all interested parties and can be helpful when deciding on a host university. The dates can be found in the "News" section.

Financing the stay abroad

Depending on the type of study project, grants for travel and living expenses can be applied for. The current calls for proposals can be found under "News" on the homepage of the International Office. In addition, it is possible to apply for a student loan abroad or to take out an educational loan. In principle, it can be said that the additional costs of a semester abroad are usually not covered by state subsidies. It is therefore advisable to think about the financing well in advance.

Internship abroad

In general, students have to take care of an internship abroad themselves. The International Office cannot offer any individual support in finding a place, but only in financing the internship.

The ERASMUS+ programme supports internships at host institutions (companies) in other European countries*. This enables students to gain practical experience and at the same time acquire foreign language and intercultural skills.

Working stays of between 2 and 12 months can be supported, regardless of whether it is a compulsory practical semester or a voluntary internship.

There are also various funding opportunities for internships outside Europe.

*Excluded are EU institutions and organisations managing EU programmes.
 
Summer Schools

Go abroad in the summer and do something for your studies at the same time? That's what a Summer School makes possible! Summer Schools are usually two- to four-week educational stays at a foreign university or college and take place during the semester break. A Summer School offers subject-specific or interdisciplinary courses and/or language courses. The courses are held in the national language or in English and thus enable students to improve their own language skills. A cultural programme with excursions and sightseeing is usually also offered and enables students to get to know the country and its culture. Some universities in Germany also offer the opportunity to participate in an international summer school. The teaching language is mostly English. The best way to find the right summer school is to look at the pages of the individual universities. Important: A course fee is usually charged for attending a Summer School.

You can apply for PROMOS funding at our partner universities. Information about PROMOS can be found under Outgoing and Scholarships/ Funding.

Scholarships

Scholarships and grants for study stays abroad can be applied for via the following institutions or programmes (ATTENTION: all grant applications must be submitted before the start of the stay abroad!)
