Further possibilities

In addition to the Erasmus and Double-Degree programmes, there are many other options for organising your stay abroad. Depending on the focus you would like to focus on, a research stay can also be considered, for example, in order to write your student research project or thesis. If you are interested in a short stay, the Summer or Winter Schools might be just right for you. On this page we briefly present further interesting possibilities for a stay abroad.


  • Research Collaborations

    Through the numerous research cooperations of the institutes, you have the opportunity to write your student research projects or dissertations at cooperating institutes abroad. If you are interested, please come to the Study Abroad Advisory Service, where we can find out together which institutes and cooperations are best suited to you.

  • ISEP

    Students from all Bachelor's and Master's programmes at Leibniz University Hannover have the opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of more than 140 universities in North America or Oceania as part of the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP).

  • Free Mover

    If the university of your choice is not among the cooperation and/or partner universities, you have the possibility to apply as a Free Mover at the respective university. Please note, however, that a high degree of personal initiative is required, as the organisation of the study place at the desired university abroad (admission procedure) as well as the financing is largely in your hands.

  • Summer Schools/Winter Schools

    The Summer or Winter School can be an attractive alternative to a semester abroad if a longer stay abroad is difficult to integrate into your study planning. During a Summer School, you will gain an intensive insight into your subject and also get to know students and lecturers from all over the world. Current offers for Summer/Winter Schools with information on the application procedure

  • Partner Universities

    Leibniz University's international relations are diverse. For example, the university currently maintains 168 cooperation agreements on a contractual basis with 139 universities in 40 countries. A semester abroad at a partner university has the advantage that tuition fees at the host university are either waived completely or only have to be paid at a reduced rate. You can find all available partner universities of Leibniz University Hannover in the database. 

  • Double Degree Program

    The sector of Energy Technology is increasingly characterized by international and multinational collaborations. Thus, besides the technical expertise international experience is demanded. The master‘s degree programme Energy Technology is offered to meet these arising requirements of internationality. Technical expertise is taught in an international environment.
    The programme is designed to give a highly qualified specialisation in the field of Energy Technology. It is offered in English language by

    • Leibniz University Hannover, Germany in cooperation with
    • Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland.

  • With the IFW to Keio University in Japan

    For many years, the IFW has offered its students the opportunity to study abroad at Keio University in Tokyo. Every year in the summer semester, students of the University of Hanover can live and study in Tokyo for half a year, not only profiting from this for their studies, but also getting to know other languages and cultures and having an unforgettable time.

    Further information can be found on the website of the Institute of Production Engineering and Machine Tools.

  • Internship

    A research or company internship can also enrich your wealth of experience and increase your career opportunities. Under certain circumstances, it is also possible to complete your specialist internship in a company abroad as part of your Bachelor's or Master's degree. Please contact the Internship Office in advance for more information on this and any questions regarding possible recognition. If you have any questions about the organisation and possible financing options, please come to the office hours of the International Student Advisory Service.
