Go abroad

If you are student at the Faculty of Physics and Engineering and you are interested in going abroad, here are the various forms of mobility:

  • Study mobility
    • Study in Europe via ERASMUS+ (1 or 2 semesters)
    • Study in Europe via Eucor or EPICUR (Credits)
    • Studying outside Europe through cooperation agreements
  • « Virtual » mobility
  • Internship mobility

You'll find further explanations in the sections below.

Important: It's important to be aware that a mobility project covers different aspects: educational, administrative and financial. Such a project needs to be planed and prepared well in advance. To know more about the procedure to follow, you can read the vademecum  prepared for this (see useful documents below).

Study mobility

If you're planning to study abroad for 1 or 2 semesters, in or outside Europe, you'll need to take the necessary steps well in advance, starting in the first semester of the year « N » before you plan to go abroad, in order to start your mobility project in the first semester of year « N+1 ». The main steps can be consulted in the following list :

 Planning a mobility project
  • The Faculty of Physics and Engineering has numerous cooperation agreements with foreign institutions. Some of these agreements are in the process of being renewed, but the list of partner institutions can be consulted on the moveon website.
  • A mobility student enrolled in the Faculty of Physics and Engineering is exempt from paying tuition fees to the host University.
  • Student exchanges are based on the recognition of credits acquired during the mobility period at a partner institution.
  • Students on a study mobility program must therefore plan a study contract before their departure, listing the courses in the host university that would replace "equivalent" local courses had they remained at the Faculty of Physics and Engineering. If you are aware of your plans to continue your studies at our faculty and have identified one or more destinations (several wishes can be formulated), you should contact the N+1 course coordinator as soon as possible, and also inform our international relations department, for help in your project.

Your study contract must be approved by the N+1 course coordinator and the faculty exchange coordinator (prior to application), then by the partner institution (after selection by the University of Strasbourg).

Please note: some foreign establishments require a certain level of language proficiency, which may have to be validated by a certificate.

 Submission of applications

Deadlines are summarized below:

Hors-EuropeS1 (+S2)12/10/202315/12/2024

The University and faculty have a limited number of places available, depending on the agreements. After receiving the opinion of our faculty's international relations correspondent, the International Relations Department selects the applications. Various criteria are taken into account when granting applications:

  • The candidate's motivation and the relevance of the mobility to the academic/professional project
  • The candidate’s academic performance
  • Language skills

You will be informed by e-mail if one of your choices has been approved.

 Scholarships attribution

Mobility projects include a considerable financial component. To help students with their plans, the University of Strasbourg has compiled a list of different types of financial aid, depending on your situation and your project. You may only be eligible for some of these possibilities.


During your stay abroad, you may need to talk to your course coordinator and the faculty's Internation Relations correspondent about modifying your study contract if you have problems following the one already in place.

 Validation of results

The results obtained abroad will be validated by an "International Relations" jury including the coursecoordinator.

Study mobility via EPICUR and Eucor-campus

The University of Strasbourg is part of two strategic groups of European higher education institutions, the European Alliance EPICUR and Eucor - The European Campus, which offer unique opportunities for the entire academic community. For more information, we invite you to consult the documents below.

Virtual mobility

    Témoignages d'étudiants

    Je m'appelle Juan et je suis étudiant en Licence de Physique à la faculté de Physique et d'Ingénierie de l’Université de Strasbourg. Pendant tout mon cinquième semestre, je me suis embarqué dans une aventure qui a changé ma vie. J’ai toujours eu l’envie d’apprendre et d’échanger avec des nouvelles cultures et j'ai décidé de partir en mobilité à Florence, en Italie.

    Grâce à l’accueil de l’Université de Florence et au programme Erasmus, j’ai eu la chance de sortir de ma zone de confort et m'imprégner des nouvelles expériences complètement enrichissantes et valorisantes. L'apprentissage d’une nouvelle langue, la rencontre avec des nouveaux amis en Italie, l’échange interculturel, entre autres, sont des expériences difficiles à oublier.

    Avec mes études et les nombreuses activités proposées pour les étudiants en cours d'échange, j'ai été  occupé tout le temps. Pour ma part, je jouais très souvent au volley-ball, je voyageais un peu partout en Italie et je m’intégrais avec mes pairs. Une belle expérience qui me donne l’envie d’y retourner.


     Partir à l'étranger

    Je m'appelle Youssef, étudiant à la Faculté de Physique et d’Ingénierie à l’Université de Strasbourg, et en septembre 2021, je me suis envolé vers le Royaume-Uni pour y faire année d'études Erasmus et y vivre quelques-uns des meilleurs souvenirs de ma vie. J’avais toujours envie de faire un échange culturel dans un autre pays pour sortir de ma zone de confort et découvrir des nouveaux horizons.

    J’ai donc décidé de partir à l’Université de York au Royaume-Uni pendant ma deuxième année de licence science pour l'ingénieur. Pendant cette année, j’ai fait beaucoup d’activités à côté de mes études, j’ai rejoint le club de parachutisme de York, j’ai fait le tour du Royaume-Uni jusqu’à l’Écosse avec mes nouveaux amis anglais et beaucoup d'autres choses encore. J’étais toujours occupé entre les études et les activités proposées par l’université. Je n’ai qu’une envie, c’est d’y retourner !
