semester abroad The best time of your life

More than 160 partner universities worldwide! More than 160 opportunities to study abroad!


Spending a semester abroad has many advantages: you experience new cultures, strengthen your foreign language skills, gain a career advantage, make new friends, achieve greater independence and gather valuable memories. All CBS bachelor's and master's programmes offer the possibility to spend a semester abroad at one of more than 160 international partner universities. For English-language and dual bachelor programmes, a semester abroad is mandatory. However, the German-language bachelor programmes “Beriebswirtschaft & Management” and “Wirtschaftspsychologie” as well as all master programmes also provide students the opportunity to spend one semester at a partner university. Find out more about our students’ study abroad experiences here or at #cbswanderlust on Instagram.

This is how our students experienced their semester abroad:

„I did not only improve my foreign language skills during my semester in Japan, I also gained first hand intercultural experiences, made new friends from all over the world and, what’s most important, collected unforgettable memories.“

– Robin Zielke

„During my semester at Bond University in Australia I gained more experiences than I can count.“

– Tom Scharnberg

Study Abroad Experience Reports

A semester abroad not only means studying in another country, but it also means an incomparable intercultural experience. You immerse yourself in a culture that you might have thought you already knew, for example, because you have already been on vacation in that country or because it is a neighboring country and can't be that different from ours.
