Semesters abroad take our students to all kinds of places around the world! Whether it's building schools in Ghana, studying languages in Argentina, designing exhibitions in Jordan, researching at CERN in Switzerland or an industry semester in the USA.

Organized by students at Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences, “Ferndurst & Wissensweh" events are a series of interesting talks about far away destinations, studies, visits and internships abroad. These evening events are open to all students at our University, the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg and interested visitors.

The speakers report on their stays abroad, their search for the right course or internship placement, financing options, travel preparations and the country and people. Information is also available on scholarship programmes along with delicious, typical snacks from the speakers’ host countries.

The University’s International Office and the Leonardo-Office Saxony-Anhalt offer their support to the evening with valuable information on financing and scholarship opportunities.
