The University of Lower Silesia also supports its students and staff in studying and working abroad.


Within the framework of the student and staff exchange projects of the European Union's Erasmus+ programme, we cooperate with more than 100 renowned academic centres as well as with many business institutions in 24 countries of the European Union as well as in Norway, Turkey, Iceland, Northern Macedonia and Serbia.


Under the programme, DSW students successfully complete study abroad programmes at European universities and also have the opportunity to acquire professional skills in an international environment through internships in European companies.


Our partner universities include:

  • Freie Universität Berlin
  • University of Tartu, University of Bergen
  • Universidad de Sevilla
  • University of Zagreb
  • Masaryk University
  • Roskilde University
  • University of Utrecht
  • Universita Degli Studi di Genova
  • Technische universität Dresden
  • University of Antwerp.


Every year we invite students of all levels and fields of study, as well as graduates of our university, to participate in the application process for studies and internships abroad. This is because the Erasmus+ programme also makes it possible for graduates to undertake professional internships. So far, almost 300 ULS students and graduates have participated in the programme and it has been the adventure of a lifetime for them.
