All students of the LAB University of Applied Sciences can complete part of their studies abroad by doing either exchange studies or their placement abroad. Studying in abroad is an enriching experience both academically and personally. It gives you a wider perspective of the field you are studying, develops your intercultural communication skills, enhances your leadership and problem-solving skills and brings you lifetime international friendships and contacts. It also offers an excellent opportunity to gain international experience which is highly respected by employers.
LAB has student exchange agreements with over 300 partner universities around the world: Link to the partner institution portal.
The length of student exchange period is one or two study semesters.
