Studying abroad

Study Abroad

Students at the Amerika-Institut are strongly encouraged to spend one or two semesters abroad during their studies, ideally in the US or Canada. A number of different options are available to our students, and our contact persons will be happy to talk to any student interested in spending time at a university outside Germany.


Two major possibilities for students are the Erasmus program for European exchanges and the LMU program for exchanges with the US and Canada. For more information, please contact PD Dr. Charlotte Lerg.

You can also find more information on the LMU website.

Free Language Certificate

Should you need a special language certificate to proof your English language skills (exchange program, application, internship), you can contact the "Sprachzentrum" of LMU. They offer a free test.
