Study Abroad

Students who intend to study abroad usually should have passed diploma pre-examns yet. You better pre-plan your stay in time! To learn or to refresh your language skills is at least as important as to set clear objectives you intend to achieve. Do you try to optimize your abilities on the instrument you major in or do you prefer to broaden other abilties in view of your occupational outlook?


It may cause some problems if your teacher abroad relies on a totally different technique as your teacher in wuerzburg does. That’s why you better consider to study abroad after you reached a ferm level of abilities and skills.

Finance Checkup

Students who check up their financial scope avoid unpleasant situations abroad. Please consider that living expenses to some extend are higher abroad than they are in germany. You also cannot rely on sideline opportunities.
