International programs

Every year more than 50 courses are offered with English as the language of instruction specifically designed for international students from 600 full-time programs (from other faculties) and part-time programs (Erasmus, CEEPUS and “Science without Borders”).

Under the previous Erasmus program, which ran from 2009 to 2013, more than 300 students travelled abroad and even more came from abroad to study at the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences (GTK). The majority of the GTK’s students travelled to study in Germany, Italy, Austria, Portugal and Spain, while many visiting students originated from France, Germany, Spain and Portugal.

In addition, every year a few “free-mover” international students study at the faculty under the CEEPUS scheme. Furthermore, since the 2013/14 academic year we have welcomed several Brazilian students to our courses as part of the HRC / BME-CAPES “Science without Borders” cooperation program.


The Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences (GTK) offers a wide range of courses taught in English at bachelor’s level or master’s level. The courses are open to international exchange students.
