Outgoing Exchange Students

Update on 01.10.2021

The UdK Berlin does NOT encourage physical mobility to a country with a COVID-19-related travel warning! UdK Berlin recommends to refrain from travel to study abroad destinations in so called risk areas.

However, it is at the participants' discretion to travel to regions with a COVID-19 travel warning. We are allowed again to financially support students in these areas under certain conditions. Keep in mind that you do this at your own risk!

The European Commission, the DAAD, and the UdK Berlin urge all students to follow preventive measures by the local authorities.

Please sign in "ELEFAND", the Krisenvorsorgeliste by the Auswärtiges Amt (crisis prevention list): https://elefand.diplo.de/elefandextern/home/login!form.action
