University of Potsdam

Europe, Germany

The University of Potsdam is an international community with many faces and stories. Since its founding 25 years ago, the University of Potsdam has excelled in research and teaching and is well positioned both on a national and international scale. Achieving this under consistently difficult economic conditions speaks for the quality and motivation of our professors, research, and administrative staff. Its international atmosphere is created by its students from all parts of the world who have enrolled at Potsdam for a semester abroad or a complete Master’s or Bachelor’s program but also by its professors and lecturers.

Special conditions/comments

Must undertake 30 ECTS in subjects. Underloading is not permitted. Undergraduate: Potsdam will not be able to guarantee that subjects on their website are offered in English. This will be determined at the start of their semester after your arrival. Please note that this will likely result in difficulty getting your subjects approved or re-approved after arrival. The Faculty of Sciences at Potsdam is about to define subjects in different disciplines which will guaranteed be taught in English. We will post an update as soon as this information is available. In the meantime we recommend that only students with 3 or 4 ‘University wide’ elective spaces in their LTU course apply for this partner in order to cater for flexibility when choosing subjects and making changes. Postgraduate: Potsdam has a larger number of subjects offered completely in English.
