1 or 2 semesters abroad, or a summer school?

Are you already studying abroad and would like to apply for a second semester at the same or another destination?

Simply contact us for the second semester. If you wish to continue at your current destination, you do not need to submit the attachments again.


Most students leave for their semesters abroad thinking that one semester (3–4 months) is a perfect amount to be spend studying and living abroad, but when the semester is rounding up to its end, many of our students wish that they would have more time at the destination after all.

You can combine two semesters at different host universities and destinations or stay at one place for a year. Almost any combination is possible if the semesters don’t overlap.

What is more, you will receive a 100 EUR / 120 USD discount from the second semester and our team supports and helps you throughout your exchange year.

What are some of the benefits of a longer study abroad period?

Learn more about your destination – and yourself

Getting settled into a new country and culture takes time. Establishing a local network and digging deeper into the workings of your new world takes weeks, if not months.

The second semester gives you more time to focus on the best bits of going abroad – including the having fun part. Unearthing the trendiest nightlife spots and the most exotic free time activities becomes second nature. You will make even more friends and are able to deepen the relationships you already have. The study abroad destination starts to feel like home, but you are still enjoying the energy and excitement of the living abroad experience.

Get more out of your studies

You might be able to get more out of your studies during the second semester abroad. A chunk of your time during the first semester usually deals with finding the perfect balance between studying and study abroad life. When the second semester begins, you are, however, able to start the studying full on from the first lecture onward. Having already tasted the study abroad life, your thirst for knowledge can be again directed more fully towards challenging yourself academically.

Your bloated academic self-confidence, capital from the first semester, is a priceless commodity when starting a new semester. Even if you were not at the same host university for your second semester, the study skills you have acquired help you to navigate through the course selection jungle like a pro, among many other previously foreign things.


  • Settling into a new place is time consuming. In several semesters, you will be able to maximize the quality time at the destination.
  • You will have more time to get to know the destination.
  • The study abroad experience becomes even more vivid.
  • You will get more out of your studies and are able to enjoy them more.
  • You will return home as a more mature person who knows how to get the most out of his time and to which things to dedicate that time.
