Study at TU without a Cooperation

If you are planning your stay abroad at a university which is not one of TU Darmstadt’s partner universities, you are a so-called “Freemover”. You organise your semester abroad independently.

  • Leave of Absence: As a freemover, you can also take a leave of absence one or two semesters. All relevant information can be found here.
  • Funding: Even though you cannot apply for funding possibilities at TU Darmstadt, some organisations offer financial support for stays abroad, which might help you to finance your semester abroad. Further information on funding possibilities
  • Recognition of Academic achievements: The recognition of credits is also possible for self-organised stays abroad upon consultation with your department. Please contact your Departmental Coordinator for further information.
