Thomas Heitzmann international exeriences Excelia

All students at Excelia will live an international experience during their studies, ensuring they develop open-mindedness. This unique experience will enhance their CV and open doors to even more professional opportunities.

Whether improving their language abilities, expanding their academic knowledge, developing their skills, strengthening their existing competencies or simply living an intercultural experience… students always return from their international experience with a greater maturity. As a result, their employment prospects can only be enhanced. In accordance with the opportunities available and each programme’s conditions of expatriation, students are guided and assisted in their choice of destination and specific project.

International experience – an integral part of our programmes

Exchanges or double degrees

In addition, students have the opportunity of other different experiences such as international academic expatriation where they can study in one of our 210 partner universities for either a semester or an entire academic year. There is also the option of studying for a double degree or perhaps choosing the ‘multi campus’ track. 

For students wishing to study at a European university, there is the possibility of applying to the Erasmus+ programme for a grant.

Internship abroad

Carrying out a company-based internship abroad is an excellent opportunity for international experience, in which students encounter first-hand the different styles of management and company structures around the world, as well as understanding the issues they face. 
Should students decide to remain in Europe, there is the opportunity of applying to the Erasmus+ programme which has the advantage of offering them a grant to help with the associated costs of living abroad whilst carrying out their internship.


Humacité©, as a compulsory element for most programmes offered at Excelia, offers students the opportunity to leave their ‘comfort zone’ and see how others live. This human experience, unique in its kind, involves undertaking a humanitarian, social or civic project, assisting those in need. Since its creation in 2005, Humacité© has seen our students take part in altruistic, voluntary projects for hundreds of different associations throughout the world.
