International Student Office

Come to Oldenburg Grant

The Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg in Germany aims to strengthen its international ties and to increase the number of international exchange students. 

In line with this the International Student Office has the pleasure to offer several grants to exchange students from English speaking partner universities, who plan to come to Oldenburg for a semester abroad in 2018. Suitable students will be awarded with a grant of 2.000 EUR per stay. Each grant is to be used for costs related to the stay abroad (e.g. travel costs, housing, books).

All students of English speaking partner universities, who come to the University of Oldenburg within the framework of a cooperation agreement and were selected for exchange by their home universities, are entitled to apply.


Selected exchange students may apply for these grants with the following documents:  

  1. Application form
  2. Letter of Motivation (incl. study plan)
  3. Letter of recommendation by lecturer from home university (max. 1 page)
  4. Application for registration as an Exchange Student

Please notice: the student is required to keep and submit all relevant receipts (e.g. travel bills, letter of confirmation, statement of the payment of rent). The International Office will reimburse the student’s expenses up to 2.000 Euro based on these receipts.

The application deadline for the summer term 2019 will be announced in the end of 2018.
