Study Abroad

Since its foundation, art education at the Städelschule has been international in its outlook. Knowledge of different cultural spheres, countries and foreign languages are more important than ever for young artists today. The role of the Office of International Student Affairs is to advise and look after those studying at the Städelschule and exchange students.


Erasmus+ enables students to study at a European university for one or two semesters. There are no course fees for this period. Students receive a monthly grant of 300 Euro. The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is responsible for implementing and running the programme in Germany.

Partner universities

The Städelschule has bilateral cooperation arrangements with various universities in South America, Asia, Africa and North America. The Städelschule nutures these partnerships to maintain close contact and offer assistance with planning travel, accommodation and application for bursaries for the period abroad. Intercontinental exchange is generally recommended for one semester.
