SPRING 2nd year Destination

Detailed information about each of the four partner universities will be given to you by the SPRING coordinators from Ghana, Tanzania, Chile and the Philippines during their visit to Dortmund in November each year. Besides the different foci of their programmes during the second year, information is also given about the destination (country, city, campus, etc) itself.

The students are then asked around February to make a choice considering their academic and professional backgrounds but also their future planning interests and endeavors. The SPRING staff will assist you also in your choice and will then have the final decision, also considering an even distribution between all partner universities.

The SPRING staff will assist the students in all visa matters on due time before leaving for the respective 2nd year destinations.
