Cooperations and Partners


The Erasmus+ program has been enabling and supporting student exchanges within Europe for over 30 years. The Department of Computer Science has partnerships with a total of 15 universities in 11 different European countries. Students and staff of our faculty can visit these partner universities for one or two semesters to gain valuable experience abroad.

The application deadline is at the beginning of each year (latest January 31st 2023) for the upcoming winter semester and following sommer semester (2024). Further information and the application form can be found in the Moodle (password: "erasmus").

Exceptional cases of late applications can be considered for the summer semester, if there are free slots available - simply apply via mail, we will get back to you.

Overseas Exchange, Internships Abroad, Short-term Programs, Thesis

The Overseas Exchange Program is organized via the International Office  - this year’s application deadline is October 30th (for stays in winter semester 2024 & summer semester 2025).

Internships Abroad are organized individually, but there are certain options for scholarships - the International Office provides more information. Planning internships should start at least six months before the planned stay.

Short-term Programs allow to gain international experience in shorter amounts of time - current programs and further information are offered by the International office.

It is also possible to write a thesis in combination with a stay abroad - this is only possible on an individual level. Firstly, one has to organize the supervision in Dortmund, which usually is strictly connected to options of international collaboration. The International office informs on scholarship options. Not that planning and especially applying for scholarships takes some time (at least 6-12 months).
