STUDY ABROAD

Students enrolled at KIT have the opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner universities. Based on academic exchange agreements KIT has with those partner institutions, you will be exempt from paying tuition fee at the partner institution. In some cases it is possible to transfer credits. The number of student dispatched is still low. Therefore we strongly encourage all students to give it a try and study abroad.
