Politics is good for students

Study political science in Bamberg - and go abroad for it

Studying abroad is perhaps the icing on the cake for your apprenticeship and looks great with every subsequent application. You can deepen and supplement your course content abroad; You will get to know other teaching methods, you will be able to compare and take courses that are not offered in Bamberg, and you will also improve your foreign language skills. At the Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg, around 40% of each year group's dream of a stay abroad is already fulfilled.

A one- or two-semester study abroad can be integrated into the Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Political Science without difficulty.

Master’s degree students have the option of completing a double degree at Aston University (UK) or the University of Essex.
