Internationality is most important at the CBS!
A semester abroad is more than a great challenge, it presents a unique opportunity to get to know another country, to gain intercultural experience, to gain a new perspective on one’s own studies and last but not least to improve one’s linguistic abilities.
In the english taught Bachelor degree courses a semester abroad is compulsory in the fifth semester. German taught Bachelor degree students and all Master students can spend a facultative period abroad.
The tasks of the International Office for Outgoing Students include:
- General advice regarding studying abroad and planing the semester abroad
- Holding information events regarding the semester abroad
- Support when searching for and applying to appropriate guest universities
- Advice on financing options for the stay abroad
Every year, the CBS welcomes new international students from all over the world to its campus. With your different nationalities and cultures, for example from Taiwan, Korea, France and the USA or Mexico, you make life at the CBS an intercultural experience, whilst becoming acquainted with a culture new to you at the same time. The International Office happily provides international students with help and advice. We provide you with information and tips on living and studying in Cologne and at the CBS and organise a “study buddy” for you upon request, who accompanies you to the Aliens Authority for example or simply shows you student life in Cologne.
The International Office is also responsible for the maintenance of contacts to the CBS’ numerous partner universities and the initiation of contacts. Should you discover an international, state-recognised university which you believe offers a degree course which is interesting for the CBS and is not yet a CBS partner university, contact us so that we can make the efforts to conclude a partnership agreement with the university.
