Baden-Württemberg-Programme

Das KIT ist Teil des Baden-Württembergischen Universitätskonsortiums und nimmt an diesen Kooperationen teil. Damit wird KIT-Studierenden ein Aufenthalt an einer der im Verbund teilnehmenden Partnerhochschulen bzw. -campus im Ausland ermöglicht.

Eine Besonderheit der Landesprogramme besteht darin, dass eine Abstimmung der Platzierung der Baden-Württembergischen Studierenden erfolgt, so dass die Plätze unter den Baden-Württembergischen Kandidaten bestmöglich verteilt werden können. Besonders wichtig ist daher, dass Sie Flexibilität mitbringen, was die Platzierung sowie die Kurse und die Studienniveau-Einstufung angeht. Ein Landesprogramm eignet sich daher nicht für Kandidaten, die nur an eine Universität bzw. einen Campus möchten und alle anderen Universitäten bzw. Campus ausschließen.
