Students at our partner universities must first consult the coordinator at their home university, as is required for 1- or 2-semester terms abroad. The coordinator also has to nominate you for a traineeship (PJ or Famulatur). We cannot consider applications made in any other way.


Applications from students from non-partner universities (= Freemover) cannot be accepted.


The application deadlines for traineeships (PJ and Famulatur) are the same as those for study visits (Semesteraufenthalte):

15th December for the next summer semester (April – September)
15th June for the next winter semester (October – March)

All nominated applicants (EU and non-EU) have to send the following documents by email to ZIB Med.

  • current CV - please only in English or German
  • Training Agreement EU or non-EU – signed / stamped by their home university
  • Health certificate. Please read also the following important information!
  • ZIB Med personal details form (please paste recent ID photo at provided place as a file)
  • Proof of health insurance (e.g. EHIC card). Recommended: personal liability insurance

We can only proceed with the organisation of your placement when all your documents have completely reached ZIB Med.
