Your first step is to get an overview: find out which countries worldwide are open to you for study, what are your options for doing an internship or shorter stay abroad, and how much time you should allow for planning.
In principle, you can go to any university in the world as a "freemover." However, things will be easier for you in many ways if you visit one of EUF's over 100 partner universities.
If you choose one of our partner universities . . .
- There are no tuition fees.
- The EUF International Center coordinates the application process and establishes contact with the partner university.
- The recognition process for your coursework abroad (credit transfer) is secured by agreements, i.e., learning agreements and applications for recognition
- The host university helps you find housing, choose your degree and language programs there, and assists you with other administrative matters.

If you opt to go abroad as a freemover, you apply independently to the university of your choice. You may be charged tuition fees studying there. For more information, contact a freemoving agency
Can I go abroad for a shorter period of time, or to do an internship?
Going abroad for a shorter period of time is quite possible within the framework of a summer or winter school or a language course. An internship abroad is is great way to get some initial professional experience under your belt.
