The Certificate Mobility is targeted at students who wish to spend a period of study abroad.

Mandatory Components

  • Intercultural Training
  • Period of Study Abroad
  • Experience Report

Before embarking upon your study abroad project, you will take part in a two-day intercultural training course. By going abroad you should achieve one of the following objectives: a study abroad period, an internship abroad, a research project abroad, or completing a final project or thesis.

The intercultural training sessions take place on a regular basis. In order to find out about the next sessions, please refer to the calendar of the International Office. If you wish to participate in a training class, please contact the project coordinator. The training sessions will be held in German.

Even if the semester abroad is in the past, you are required to participate in a two-day intercultural training. If you have completed a semester abroad at another university, you have the possibility to register for the equivalent "Certificate Integration".

What tips would you give to an upcoming RWTH Aachen outgoing, who is planning a stay similar to yours? Please write a small, personal experience report, in which you describe your experiences during your stay, for example about finding a place to live, how studies were organized, health insurance, methods of transportation, and simliar experiences. Upload your experience report in your registration form.
