Studying and researching abroad
In Module "Practice (30 credits)

Internships/work placements can also be combined with research stays.

Advice on application procedures and funding for stays abroad is available from the University’s International Office (http://www.international.uni-hannover.de/international.html)
During a stay abroad for research and study purposes, students develop and put into practice a strategy for solving a research question that is to be the subject of the Master’s thesis. The research question arises from the context of the degree programme’s lectures and seminars, especially from the integrated research module. The research stays are always supervised by a lecturer. For a one-semester research and study stay at a foreign university, 30 credits are generally awarded.
Study and examination achievements completed as part of the five elective modules during a second semester abroad can be recognised, too. We will work with you to create a so-called Learning Agreement before the start of your study abroad, showing which of your achievements will be credited to you on your return (the research project is also covered by the Learning Agreement).The recognition of performed achievements is carried out in accordance with the standards applicable throughout Leibniz University: http://www.uni-hannover.de/de/studium/anerkennung/. Of course, partial performance per module can also be credited.
