The semester abroad takes place in the fifth semester. This is normally the winter semester i.e. in the period beginning of September to the end of January.
Students in the International Management concentration spend two semesters abroad during the fourth and fifth semester.
For Bachelor courses, the information event for the semester abroad is held at the start of the third semester and for the BIM students at the start of the second semester.
Following the information event, students can decide whether they wish to attend a partner university of the Frankfurt School or a university where there is no partnership arrangement with the Frankfurt School. Applications for partner universities are handled by the International Office; for non-partner universities, students will need to contact the foreign university directly.
