International Legal Studies offers the possibility to substitute courses from the module plan for courses successfully completed at another University abroad or during an internship abroad. A stay abroad can teach students new languages, connect with people from all over the world, get in touch with local knowledge and gain a lot of experiences.
During a year abroad, a student may attend courses in English, with a similar focus to the ones enjoined in this additional study program. Up to 10 ECTS may be completed at a University in a foreign country.
Internships which are completed abroad and within an English-speaking company or department, the student may also convert that experience into ECTS and substitute it for courses in the respective module area, if the thematic focus is consistent. The minimum period of the training is 4 weeks and can be exchanged for a maximum of 5 ECTS.
The students are obliged to inform themselves regarding alternative courses and possible ECTS-substitutions. For additional information and support the students can inquire the International Office at the University of Bayreuth.
A stay abroad, whether as a semester abroad or an internship, has many incentives beyond the crediting of courses. You get to know people from all over the world, expand your knowledge in language and law and gain a lot of experience.
