Mobility

The purpose of the mobility-option in the third semester is to offer students a wider range of opportunities to develop their own ideas or collect research data for their master's thesis.

Students of the M.A. Transcultural Studies have the choice to spend the third semester in Heidelberg doing course work or go abroad for a research internship or study exchange. 

Study Exchange

Heidelberg University offers numerous study exchange opportunities. In general, we encourage students to apply for more than one option as places, especially at prestigious universities, are highly sought after.

 

Partner Programmes of the Cluster "Asia and Europe"

At this moment the Cluster can offer its students the following opportunities, which are tailored specifically to the M.A. Transcultural Studies.

- Kyoto University, Asian Studies Unit

    

Tokyo University, Graduate School of Public Policy

     

- University of Hyderabad, India

     

- Seoul National University, Graduate School of International Studies

     

Partner Programmes of other institutes in Heidelberg

Students who want to focus on China, Japan or Korea might furthermore want to take a look at the partnerships of the Centre for East Asian Studies (ZO).

Correspondingly, students with a regional focus on South Asia, especially India, should study the international partners of the South Asia Institute (SAI).

NOTE: Please read both of these websites carefully as not all of these partnerships might include study exchange opportunities or they might only be open to students from the ZO or the SAI, respectively     

 

ERASMUS

The ERASMUS programme will be of interest to students who prefer to stay in Europe.

General information on ERASMUS (website in German only), the programme’s requirements and deadlines as well as a list of Heidelberg's partner universities is offered by the International Relations Office.
Our partner institutes have a number of ERASMUS agreements that, due to their disciplinary and regional foci, might also be of interest to students of the M.A. Transcultural Studies:

The coordinator for ERASMUS at the ZO is Prof. Dr. Harald Fuess, professor for Cultural Economic History at the Cluster. Please contact his administrative assistant, Ms. Nora Bartels, if you have specific questions beyond the information provided on the ZO website.

Please address questions regarding other departments' Erasmus exchanges to the contact people named on each homepage.

Research Internships

Students who want to combine fieldwork with gaining work experience, may opt to do a research internship abroad or in an international organisation.

In the following we have collected a few starting points for your individual planning:
