Students have the option for studying abroad via Erasmus+ collaborations. As the M.Sc. High-Performance Sport has a strong focus on internationalisation, studying abroad is highly recommended for all students. Erasmus+ exchanges are recommended in the 3rd semester. Current collaborations exist with the Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU, England; internship agreement), the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Netherlands; study and internship agreement), the Université de La Réunion (France; study and internship agreement) and the UCD Institute of Sport and Health (Irland; internship agreement). General information on Erasmus+ regulations and funding can be found here. Interested students apply via the degree coordinator (Dr. Sabrina Forster: email@example.com or Dr. Florian Beaudouin: firstname.lastname@example.org). Students can apply for Erasmus exchanges until the 30st of November each year. It is highly recommended that interested students contact the degree coordinator early in advance for counselling to assure that the courses/internships will complement the content of those offered and passed at UdS.
Besides the Erasmus opportunities Saarland University has several international partnerships within and outside of Europe. In general exchanges outside of Erasmus are organised for research projects, especially the master thesis. Thus, the exchange will be organised individually according to each students study plan. Interested students have to apply for such an exchange until the end of their second semester, with a letter of motivation as well as a research proposal. Additionally, students can apply to study a semester abroad at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. Applications have to be submited to the general international office at Saarland University until the 1st of August (study beginn in March) or the 1st of December (study beginn in July) each year. Interested students have to contact the student coordinator at least 1 year in advance of the stay to specify the modules that will be accepted for the degree.
