Other opportunities for a stay abroad

Programs of the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service), opportunities for teaching degree students, summer and winter schools. You are offered a wide range of opportunities for a stay abroad.

Global Teaching Lab

As a part of the MIT - Germany program with the University of Stuttgart, students working towards a teaching degree in STEM subjects have the opportunity to apply for a short stay at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in order to get to know the research landscape at MIT as well as the local  school system.

The exchange is part of a cooperation between the University of Stuttgart and the MIT. Every year in January, 6 STEM students from the MIT get to know the German education system and the University of Stuttgart. They sit in on STEM classes at Stuttgart schools. In return, 6 STEM teaching students from the University of Stuttgart take courses at the MIT each spring, experience the American education system, and sit in on STEM classes at American schools.
