Tuesday 19 November 2019 The Going Abroad Fair is organized by the International Office

WELCOME TO THE GOING ABROAD FAIR! Every year hundreds of HU students go abroad during their studies and we are glad you have decided you wish to be one of them! There are so many options for an international experience while you are at HU: you can study at one of our partner universities, do an internship at a foreign company, do a research assignment abroad and more! At this fair you can find all the information you need about going abroad. Visit the International Office stands for all your general questions and specifically about grants & scholarships, find out which options you have at your institute stand, learn from the experiences of students who have been abroad before or, should you want to do an internship, talk to one of the mediators present, who might be able to help you find an internship abroad!

Enjoy your time! International Office
