So, you want to study abroad in … Bonn
February 12, 2013 Leave a comment
The University of Bonn was founded almost 200 years ago and is considered to be one of Germany’s most important institutes of higher education. With over 27,000 students, Bonn is one of the world’s leading research based Universities. For 50 years the University has built a reputation in hosting students from around the world in its immersion study abroad programmes. Each year about 500 students participate in the semester or year long exchange.
Who can apply?
The Erasmus Exchange with the Universität Bonn is open to all students on the History degree, Mediaeval History degree (single and joint honours) and Modern History degree programme (single and joint honours). Single honours students can apply to study for a year or a semester (usually Semester 1 because of the nature of the University of Bonn’s term dates). The University of Bonn offers a good selection of classes in Ancient History which makes this a suitable exchange programme for students on the History degree who wish to focus on Ancient and Mediaeval History or Ancient and Modern History. Joint honours students will require the permission of the School of their second subject before they submit their application. Unless the School of their second subject has expressly permitted it, joint honours students can apply to study in Bonn for one semester only.
The language of instruction for all History modules on offer at the university is German. Therefore we require a certain level of proficiency in German and students applying for this exchange programme will be required to sit a German language test.
The deadline for next year’s programmes is Friday 22 February 2013. Please complete the History Abroad Application Form and return electronically to the Collaborations & Study Abroad team. For more information, please visit the School’s Study Abroad website, or email Dr Kostas Zafeiris, Study Abroad Co-ordinator of the School.
